Vita Student is to launch its second student development in Southampton on the site of the former bus depot on Portswood Road.

Due for completion in 2017, the purpose-built student accommodation will be able to house 435 students within a high end stylish living space.

Vita Student will begin to develop the site after acquiring the plot, which already has planning permission for student accommodation.

Included within the Portswood Road premises are plans for an impressive communal area, a large social hub, movie room, gym, private dining and dedicated study areas.

Managing Director of Vita Student, Lee McLean said of the site: "We're hugely excited to be launching our second residence in Southampton, a fantastic city that is a top destination for international and postgraduate students, both of whom want high quality accommodation and high standards of service.

"We're committed to helping our residents feel right at home here and that job is made so much easier by the warm and welcoming people of Southampton. We're incredibly proud of our relationship with the local community and strongly believe the development will be a major social and economic benefit to the area."

Vita Student already operates 10 residences nationwide and prides itself on offering the best possible student accommodation experience.
