Based within half a mile of the University Campus, this well recognised building known for providing a great home to the University’s students will undergo a significant transformation over the next two years.
The transformed layout of the building will create larger blocks of accommodation. Moving away from the current format of accommodation which has multiples of 5 bedroom flats with dining kitchen, one shower and one toilet, wash basins are also provided within the bedrooms. The new transformed layout will offer a number of 9 bedroom flats with kitchen, dining room, lounge, 3 showers and 3 toilets. Also a number of 4 bedroom flats with kitchen, dining room/lounge, 1 shower and 1 toilet.
Enhancing student experience is a significant element to this project and the new single story ‘social hub’ to be sited in the centre of the complex will achieve just that. At 14m x 11m the new building will have glazed doors opening onto a barbeque area, toilets, table tennis table and gym equipment.
Phase 2 of the project has now been completed, with Phase 3 beginning in February 2018.
