Clifton Hill House, University of Bristol

Lower Clifton Hill Bristol BS8 1BX

“Clifton Hill House was built between 1746 and 1750 as an imposing semi-rural mansion of Palladian inspiration for Paul Fisher, a highly successful linen draper, merchant, and ship-owner who participated in the slave trade. Despite his involvement in the slave trade he was described by his contemporaries as a very benevolent man and great benefactor for the poor of the community. He was prominent in the foundation of the Bristol Royal Infirmary in 1735. Clifton Hill House is a mixed Hall of Residence for the University of Bristol, housing some 227 students, of whom around 30 are second and third years. Our students come from different countries and backgrounds and they study the full range of subjects offered by the University.”
