Progress Slows in Closing the Attainment Gap
7th Dec 2018
Plans to build a £130m student accommodation complex in Hull have been given the green light.
The scheme will expand the amount of student accommodation available on campus and will consist of single rooms and one-bedroom apartments. The 1,462-bed development was unanimously approved by Hull City Council.
The University of Hull is working with University Partnerships Programme (UPP) to raise the required investment and handle the design, construction and operation of the project.
Commenting on the development, Glenn Burgess, acting vice-chancellor at the University of Hull, said: "Our £130m project will create more high-quality accommodation for our students."
"The West Campus Residences Project will contribute to the university's commitment to offering the best student experience and help continue to attract high-calibre students and staff, who bring an exciting range of talent and cultures to the city and enhance the local area."
Planning permission was also granted to build a new sports centre for students and the community. The sports centre will contain a 12-court sports facility, including international-standard netball courts and seating for 700 spectators.
