Unite Students to build £75m Bristol student scheme

Unite Students is set to build a 600-bed student property, Marsh Mills, at the centre of Bristol’s largest regeneration project.

The £75m development is near the University of Bristol’s Temple Quarter campus and Temple Meads train station, and is is scheduled to be open for the 2025/26 academic year.

A long-term lease agreement with the University of Bristol covers at least half of the rooms.

The property will feature communal spaces and amenities such as study areas, a roof terrace, a gym, and cycle storage.

Tom Brewerton, group development director at Unite Students, said: “Bristol is where it all began for Unite Students and this new property is in a vitally important scheme for students in the city. Marsh Mills will be built alongside the University of Bristol’s new Temple Quarter campus plus the city’s Temple Meads train station.

“This development is further evidence of Unite Students’ commitment to delivering new supply of high-quality student accommodation in cities where it is needed most. Marsh Mills will have a low-carbon impact on the environment and will be built and open in time for the start of 2025/6 academic year, adding to our portfolio in the city and contributing to the much-needed regeneration of the Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh area of the city.”
