West Campus Residence Project

£130m West Campus Residences Project accommodation plans approved

We are delighted to announce that we have received unanimous approval for our new £130-million student accommodation scheme. The West Campus Residences Project will create more high-quality accommodation for our students and contribute to the University’s commitment to offering the best student experience and help continue to attract high-caliber students and staff.

Construction on the West Campus Residences Project is scheduled to begin in May 2017 with work due to be completed by the end of 2019.

The West Campus Residences development will provide students with a mix of high-quality room-types and facilities to meet a growing demand for affordable on-campus accommodation and provide a greater choice of accommodation types to suit all budgets for both new and returning students.

The proposals feature a range of single rooms and one bedroom apartments for a further 1,462 students. They will comprise nine blocks, within the scale and context of the campus and neighbouring buildings. Alongside the accommodation, an urban green and avenue will offer facilities on their doorstep, including a café, convenience store, laundry facilities and formal and informal outdoor areas.

The proposals have evolved through consultation with the local community, residents, staff and students. The University of Hull has listened to feedback and updated the designs wherever possible.

The development is the next wave of investment across the campus to provide an exceptional environment for students.
