Campus Living Villages (CLV) and Equitix have entered into a joint venture to provide high-quality student accommodation for the University of Bristol.

The university has appointed CLV and Equitix as the strategic development partner for new accommodation projects, including the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.

This development will result in the construction of around 1,200 new beds, primarily for the use of students studying at the new campus. Building work on the Temple Quarter is expected to start in 2019 and is due to open in time for the 2021-22 academic year. Under the arrangement, the consortium will design, build and operate the site for a 50-year period.

The aim of the new campus is to focus on education and research for business, as well as social and digital innovation to help tackle real-world challenges.

Commenting on the partnership, Martin Hadland, Commercial Director at Campus Living Villages UK, said: "We are delighted to be entering into this partnership with the University of Bristol. The Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus will provide a fantastic opportunity for us to be at the centre of one of the University's biggest developments to date, and we look forward to adding the new facilities to our ever-expanding portfolio of student villages."

"Our team is delighted to be partnering with such a prestigious University and excited to be providing a high-quality experience to Bristol's student community studying at the new campus. Our villages are much more than just a place to sleep. They are first and foremost about providing a community student experience - so it's great to be working hand in hand with the University to integrate our new accommodation into its sector-leading plans for improved pastoral support for residents to create a home away from home at the new campus."
