Facilities and accommodation


University of West England - UWE

In recent years, we have invested £300 million into our facilities. This is to ensure our learning spaces are up-to-the-minute, and so you have access to industry-standard equipment across the University.

This includes:

  • A newly-opened engineering building, designed to inspire the engineers of the future. It has been built for hands-on investigation and offers engine test cells, wind tunnels, collaborative learning spaces, a Merlin MP521 flight simulator, and one of Europe’s largest robotics labs.
  • A £55 million modern Bristol Business School and Bristol Law School that reflects a real business environment, and houses mock courtrooms and a virtual law office.
  • Our £9 million award-winning film studios for creative industries students at Bower Ashton Campus. Complemented by inspirational architecture and views of the historic Ashton Court estate, it houses industry-standard production and post-production facilities for filmmaking, animation and photography.
  • Newly refurbished PC labs at Frenchay Campus including a cutting-edge games studio. Other studio facilities include integrated studios for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and a wide range of specialist architectural resources.
  • Modern facilities for our health courses including a modern simulation suite and newly-opened Optometry and Clinical Skills Centre, allowing you to hone your skills in environments that mimic real clinical and community settings. Whether it’s using the hospital-standard equipment in diagnostic imaging, or delivering radiotherapy to virtual patients, you can confidently take your new knowledge into the workplace.
  • A crime scene house for forensic science students, featuring six rooms that have been specially adapted to stage a variety of simulated crime scenes. The house, designed by UWE Bristol and the Avon and Somerset Constabulary, allows students to examine each room and solve a jigsaw puzzle of clues, equipping them with invaluable skills and experience for a career in forensics.
