In November 2016, the University of Bristol unveiled plans for a new £300 million campus in the heart of the Enterprise Zone. Located on the Former Sorting Office site on Cattle Market Road, the campus will include a Digital Innovation Hub, a ‘business school of the future’ and a student residential village.
Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus is a unique collaboration between the University, Bristol City Council, Government, industry and philanthropic partners, and the local business community. 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.
All-new degree programmes will be designed and developed in collaboration with industry partners to ensure students educated on the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus are equipped to create, lead and work successfully in the industries of tomorrow. Research and teaching on this new, future-focused campus will concentrate on the interfaces between disciplines – for example, where business education meets technology and between the University and society at large – to create social, economic and technological innovations of scale and impact.
It is hoped that the campus will open in time for the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
