Blackfriars Residences

Blackfriars Residence

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, so you can hop back and forth whenever you need to.

With 120 rooms, Blackfriars accommodation offers two room types for Hartpury University students - the townhouses and the standard ensuites.

The unique townhouses boast a large social and dining space, you'll have your own private bedroom along with a shared ensuite (with one other student). The standard ensuite facilities allow you to have your own bedroom with a private ensuite, whilst sharing a kitchen and living space with four to eight peers. All rooms are available on 40-week contracts.

Blackfriars residence is managed by Cityheart and supported by Hartpury.

Live in the ninth-fastest growing city in the UK*.

Gloucester has a real vibe for those seeking that independent living experience. Here are some things that you might get up to:

  • Shopping in a multi-million pound outlet shopping centre located in the stunning historical dockyard
  • Visiting Gloucester Cathedral. Built in the 11th century, it was used as the backdrop for filming in Harry Potter
  • Getting active and trying something new. There is a climbing centre, ski and snowboard centre as well as an array of gyms
  • Socialising at one of many pubs and bars, ending at ATIK the largest nightclub on the ‘Glos vegas strip’
