Known as the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, the development will be one of the city’s most significant regeneration projects in recent history.
The University unveiled the plans in the first part of a two phase public consultation before submitting for planning towards the end of this year.
Construction work is scheduled to get underway in 2019 allowing the campus to open in time for the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
The seven-acre site spans the derelict former Royal Mail sorting office and part of Arena Island.
The University will also expand its successful Engine Shed enterprise hub and build a new student village together with improvements to the public realm, including new cycle and pedestrian links to the surrounding area and high-quality landscaping.
Professor Hugh Brady, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Bristol, said that although designs for the campus were in their infancy and would be informed by the outcome of the consultation.

The Masterplan proposes to comprise nearly 900,000 sq ft of development capacity across both sites within a high-quality public realm.
The main Cattle Market site (left) will house a 8 to 9 storey University main building of 380,000 sq ft. It will also contain a 12-storey University building or student residential building alongside a smaller 9-storey University building.
The other building cluster near the proposed Arena will feature student accommodation in a trio of buildings ranging from 11-25 storeys.
