The University of Bristol is planning to build a new £300 million campus at Temple Meads. The development will transform a seven-acre site next to Bristol Temple Meads railway station into an open campus that will be part of the community, help to regenerate the area and benefit the whole city.
Seven new buildings will transform the former Royal Mail sorting office and part of the adjoining island, providing a mix of flexible research and teaching facilities, accommodation for up to 1,500 students and a range of commercial outlets.
Teaching and research will focus on digital technologies, and the campus will also include a new £43 million Quantum Technologies Information Centre and an innovation hub based on the successful Engine Shed model, with the aim of helping more start-up businesses to thrive.
The campus will initially cater for 3,500 students, the majority of whom will be postgraduates, and approximately 800 members of staff will be based there.
Facilities will also be opened up for public use, including a training and skills centre and resources which can be used by community groups. The new campus aims to be an attractive destination for all citizens and will include informal seating areas by the waterfront and a public art programme. Environmental sustainability is another key priority: the campus will be car free and aims to be carbon neutral by 2030.
