University Of Bristol New Campus
Plans for the University of Bristol’s ‘transformational’ new campus have been unveiled, with the £300 million project to sit at the heart of the city’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
The Temple Quarter Campus will be built near Bristol Temple Meads train station on the derelict former sorting office site and will be at the centre of one of the largest urban regeneration projects in the UK, giving the prime city centre site a new lease of life.
It’s hoped the campus will open in time for the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
Temple Quarter Campus is a unique collaboration between the University, Bristol City Council, Government, industry and philanthropic partners, and the local business community that will build on the city’s enviable reputation for high-tech and digital innovation.
Not only will it provide an important catalyst for UK economic growth, job creation and opportunities for Bristol’s communities but it will secure the University’s future growth for generations to come.
Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark said: “Our forthcoming Industrial Strategy is committed to creating highly skilled and versatile workforces in all areas of the UK. The development of this exceptional new campus for the University of Bristol is a brilliant example of this strategy in action, with government, academia and industry collaborating to deliver future-focused training that will build on Bristol’s growing reputation as a digital and tech cluster.”
Central to the vision for the new campus are a Digital Innovation Hub, a ‘business school of the future’, a student residential village and Engine Shed 2 – an expansion of the successful Engine Shed enterprise hub which houses the award-winning SETsquared business incubator.
All-new degree programmes will be designed and developed in collaboration with industry partners to ensure students educated on the Temple Quarter Campus are equipped to create, lead and work successfully in the industries of tomorrow.
