Pittville Student Village

£38million investment in our brand new student village.

​Our Pittville Student Village is the result of £38million investment and is planned to open September 2017 exclusively for new University of Gloucestershire students, adding approximately an additional 600 rooms to our existing portfolio.

This exciting new site is being developed in partnership with Uliving, leaders in student living and sustainable construction. The village boasts landscaped grounds, ergonomic social spaces, and 24/7 on site security. All rooms offer 4ft wide (three quarter size) beds within flats and houses which look out onto green courtyards. Over 600 of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities.

There are also 60 self-contained studio rooms available, with both en-suite bathroom and kitchenette. The village is a short walk to Pittville Park’s rolling lawns, magnificent lakes and Grade I listed Pittville Pump Rooms that hosts regular concerts and cultural events. Cheltenham Racecourse, home to some of the region’s biggest festivals and events, is also a stone’s throw away.​

Pittville is only a 20 minutes’ walk to Francis Close Hall (FCH) campus, 20 minutes’ walk from Cheltenham town centre and has regular bus routes during term time including a late-night bus on student nights.
