The need for student accommodation

The surrounding area is dominated by Coventry University buildings, including the engineering and computing building, library and multi-storey staff car park.

Student requirements have evolved over the years and this development offers exactly the kind of accommodation they are looking for with a host of amenities as well as individual rooms.

Gilltown Ltd, the developer behind the project, saw great potential in the site.


Student space

There are a mix of studio study bedrooms with an en-suite pod and kitchenette; cluster bedrooms with en-suite pod and shared living/kitchen/dining room, and affordable cluster bedrooms with shared living/kitchen/dining room and shower/WCs.

Ten rooms have been identified to allow for easy adaptation in future to meet accessible requirements of residents when needed.

There is also green space within the development’s courtyard.
