<P>The University of the West of England, also known as UWE Bristol, or simply UWE (pronounced "youwe") is a university based in the British city of Bristol. Its main campus is at Frenchay, about five miles (8 north of the city centre. UWE also has campuses at St Matthias and Glenside in northeast Bristol and Bower Ashton, near Ashton Court in southwest Bristol. </P>
<P>There are regional centres in Bath and Swindon, and an associate faculty specialising in animal behaviour and welfare, agricultural and sports related courses in Hartpury, Gloucestershire. This satellite college has staged the European Young Rider Championship, a horse riding competition.</P>
<P>With around 30,000 students and 3,000 academic staff, UWE is the larger of the two universities in Bristol (the longer established University of Bristol has approximately 18,000 students[2]). 86% of students at UWE are from state schools. The library on the Frenchay site is called the Bolland Library, named after Dr Robert Bolland, the first director of Bristol Polytechnic from 1969 to 1974. The main Frenchay campus is situated close to the M32 motorway, twenty minutes walk from the wellconnected Bristol Parkway railway station. Joe Vellano Womens Jersey </P>
<P>The Chancellor of UWE is Sir Ian Carruthers OBE.[3][4] Professor Steven West is the ViceChancellor.[5]The University of the West of England can trace its roots back to the foundation of the Merchant Venturers Navigation School, which was founded in 1595. Part of this institution, to which the Universities of Bristol and Bath also partly owe their origins, became a technical college which, after merger with other colleges, in turn became Bristol Polytechnic in 1970. Like the other former polytechnics, this gained university status and its present name as a result of the Further and Higher Education Act, 1992.[6] Alfonzo Dennard Womens Jersey </P>
<P>The Bower Ashton site was formed in 1969 as the West of England College of Art which was formerly the art school of the Royal West of England Academy in Queens Road, Bristol.

These campuses, together with campuses in Redland, Ashley Down, Unity and Street and Frenchay became part of Bristol Polytechnic around 1976.</P>

In 1970 the college became part of Bristol Polytechnic, the precursor of the University.[10] Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal </P>

<P>UWE Stadium</P>
<P>As part of the masterplanning process, the University has identified an undeveloped area of 9.3 hectares which has the benefit of planning permission for office development. Potential uses for this site were considered, but it has subsequently been identified as an 'opportunity site' with the uses to be determined.[14]</P>
<P>It is part of this 'opportunity site' that has been identified for a new stadium by Bristol Rovers Football Club. The 'UWE Stadium', as it will be called, will be developed in a spirit of partnership between the University and Bristol Rovers, albeit privately financed.</P>
<P>The proposed stadium is well located in relation to the strategic road network and access to public transport. The development offers opportunities to share car parking with UWE (as a replacement for the main staff and student car park, east of Coldharbour Lane. The site also allows for overflow parking to use other UWE car parks) and for the stadium to house teaching rooms, facilitate internships and to provide facilities such as a gym and social spaces that will be available for use by the wider community. In providing these uses the stadium will assist in adding much needed social and cultural facilities to the area.[14]</P>
<P>The agreement represents a significant investment by BRFC of approximately 40m in first class facilities that will bring added value to the city and the region.</P>
