Set over six to eight storeys, the accommodation will include facilities such as shared study areas, common room, gym, staff management suite and laundry. There will also be amenity courtyards, disabled parking spaces, cycle spaces, drop off and collection area and a separately-accessed service area outside the building.

The need for student accommodation

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

Student property requirements have evolved over the years and this development will offer students 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, could see great potential in the site.

This is a great location for Coventry University students and creating high-quality student property is exactly what we do.

– Paul Gillespie, Managing Director Gilltown Ltd

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 will also be room for green space within the development.
