Blackfriars Residences

Brand new student accommodation at the heart of Gloucester city centre.

You’ll benefit from the best of rural and urban student life, enjoying the city buzz and the beauty of our countryside-based campus. It’s just a 10-minute bus or car ride between the two, which means you can hop back and forwards whenever you need to.

Blackfriars rooms are priced at £143 per week including utilities for a standard en-suite bedroom. Accommodation is managed by Cityheart, but supported by us.

Gloucester is a vibrant city that is growing every day. In fact, it’s the ninth fastest growing city in the UK*.

Here are five things you might like to do:

  1. Shop in a multi-million pound outlet shopping centre located in the stunning historical dockyard
  2. Visit Gloucester Cathedral. Built in the 11th century, it was used as the backdrop for filming in Harry Potter
  3. Get active and try something new. There is a climbing centre, ski and snowboard centre as well as an array of gyms
  4. Socialise at one of many pubs and bars, ending at ATIK the largest nightclub on the ‘Glos vegas strip’
  5. Visit Kingsholm stadium. Not only the home of the cherry and whites, this is a popular outdoor music venue as well.
