Home 5 Announcements 5 Introducing The Port on the Square. Homes for Students announces new vibrant student accommodation in Bristol

The Port on the Square launches on the historical Portland Square and between Brunswick Square, close to Cabot Circus in Bristol. 

Located in the heart of Bristol’s cultural and historical quarter, Prestige Student Living’s latest accommodation building ‘The Port on the Square’ promises an unrivalled living experience for students choosing to study in this world-renowned city.

Protecting the Grade II listed façade, real estate developers London and South Capital are in the process of creating vibrant interiors and gardens to bring the 18th century space right up to date and in keeping with its contemporary neighbours. Nestled in amongst historically significant architecture and protected green spaces, The Port on the Square embodies the boutique lifestyle near the lively food, art, and music scene this corner of Bristol has to offer.

Due to welcome residents from September 2024, London and South Capital have employed the services of Prestige Student Living to manage the property on their behalf. The Prestige Student Living team of dedicated onsite experts will offer a year-round student experience programme together with a safe, secure and supportive environment where students can thrive.

Once complete, The Port on the Square will boast 259 en-suites and studios, a state-of-the-art cinema room, ample study and communal spaces, outstanding future-proofed digital connectivity, courtyard and gardens. Located just a few minutes’ walk from retail hub Cabot Circus, countless culturally significant attractions and the harbourside, students will not only be within easy reach of all local universities, but also close to places to socialise, relax and enjoy too.


Director of London and South Capital Raj Tankaria adds,

“As custodians of this historically significant space, in the heart of a city with such a rich cultural tapestry, we’re delighted to reimagine The Port on the Square for the next generation of Bristol residents. Students choose Bristol for its great universities, vibrant atmosphere, and impressive architecture.  The Port on the Square brings together all of these making it an unbeatable place to call home.”

Prestige Student Living’s Chief Operating Officer Scott Lewis adds,

“We’ve been hugely impressed by London and South Capital’s vision for The Port on the Square development located in a very special part of Bristol. The Port on the Square is the perfect fit for our Prestige Student Living portfolio, featuring an impressive array of outstanding features designed to exceed today’s students’ expectations. Our onsite team will create the very best welcome for students joining us from September, ensuring they enjoy everything the city, and their new home has to offer.”
