Colleagues on the University’s UK campuses may notice some additional building work over the next few weeks. The University is creating a further 325 rooms to meet additional student requests for on-campus living.
The former Cripps Health Centre is being refurbished to create 55 new rooms and a further 40 rooms are being developed in a previously unused block at the Sutton Bonington campus.
A new hall of residence with 230 rooms, to be known as Beeston Hall, is also being built near the David Ross Sports Village using modular construction techniques. High quality pre-fabricated room units are being locked together to create the halls, with additional spaces for kitchen and bathroom areas.
All rooms will be fully furnished including queen size bed, study equipment, wardrobe and refrigerator. The exterior of Beeston Hall will be decorated with designs chosen by the students who will be living there.
Students have welcomed the move and have already booked the majority of the new rooms. The new accommodation will become available in phases over the next four to six weeks, with all works completed by early November 2018.
Students will be provided with temporary accommodation in the meantime, and will have the same access to welcome events, services and support as all of our new students.
