WCN Editorial Team 21 Jun 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The University of Bristol has unveiled plans for its new £300m campus located next to Bristol Temple Meads.

The new development, dubbed Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, will be spread out on a seven-acre site spanning the former Royal Mail sorting office and part of Arena Island.

The project also includes expansion of the Engine Shed enterprise hub, construction of a new student village and upgrades to the public realm.

Currently, the university is running an online public consultation for the project that will run until 21 July. An outline planning application is expected to be submitted to Bristol City Council later in 2017 after a second round of consultation in September.

Applications for individual buildings will be submitted later on after further consultation in 2018/19.

Construction is expected to commence in 2019, with an opening targeted in the start of the 2021/22 academic year.

University of Bristol vice-chancellor and president Hugh Brady said: "Our new campus is very much a work in progress and we would welcome people’s feedback, on everything from education provision, research and innovation to community engagement and transport links.

“We don’t know exactly what it will look like yet, but we do know that we want it to feel welcoming to everyone and to be a place for the whole city to learn, explore and enjoy."
