The University of Hull Opens up About Its Newest Halls

Posted by Ross Jones-Morris in

The University of Hull is touting its brand new halls of residence as "among the best in the country" whilst also giving further details about the facilities the 560 bed development will have to offer students when it opens this summer.

Known as The Courtyard, the halls are split across five buildings surrounding two central courtyards on the University of Hull's Cottingham Road campus. The majority of the flats on site are 8 bedroom clusters, with the eight residents sharing kitchen and dining space. There are however 20 deluxe room and 28 self-contained one-bed flats on site too, as well as six wheelchair accessible flats.

The development also sports a games room, movie room and a large communal kitchen.

The Courtyard is due to open in September and has cost the university £30 million to build. The project manager of Sewell Construction (who headed up the project) has said, "The accommodation is going to be first-class. The standard of the finish and the quality of the products being used will help the university stand out among its rivals."
