A joint venture partnership between student accommodation provider Campus Living Villages UK and investment fund Equitix has been appointed as the development partner for approximately 1,200 new accommodation spaces at the University of Bristol, beginning with the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.

Equitix will oversee all aspects of the development, from construction and acquisition to maintenance and operation, while Campus Living Villages will work with the university's pastoral care team to ensure students have access to 24/7 support. Work is expected to start in 2019 and the campus is scheduled to open for the 2021/22 academic year.
