Nelson House and Drake House - Bristol

Rupert Street, BS1 2JT

It’s covered in iconic street art, it’s just for UWE students, and Frenchay campus is just 25 minutes away by bus - welcome to Nelson & Drake House, a Bristol city centre student home like no other.

There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from here. A non en-suite room is perfect if you want to share your bathroom, kitchen, and lounge with flatmates. If you want flatmates but your own bathroom, choose an en-suite. And if you want everything to yourself, a studio will be ideal.

As you enter the building, you pass through a small courtyard with seating that’s sheltered from the elements. Your reception desk is right here too, so it’s quick and easy to collect any parcels. Inside, there’s a large common room with free pool and ping pong tables, as well as sofas, a TV, and study space.

Nelson Street connects Bristol’s harbourside area to the city’s main shopping district, which means there’s loads to do - day or night - right here on your doorstep. Bower Ashton campus is just 20 minutes away by bus, and the Glenside campus is a 35-minute bus ride away.
