About the institution
The University of the West of England (UWE) has three main campuses: City, Frenchay and Glenside. Frenchay is the largest campus, a few miles outside of Bristol and location of the university’s purpose-built Student Village and a free on-site cinema. The Glenside campus is in Stapleton, three miles from Bristol, and the location of UWE’s Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences. The site on which Glenside is based was originally an asylum back in 1857 before becoming a military hospital during the First World War.
