Work has begun on building new student housing at Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst Campus.

The project will consist of six three-storey blocks, which will accommodate 191 students.

The £12.5m development is due for completion in time for the 2019-20 academic year.

The additional student accommodation be being constructed to meet demand for existing and future students at the campus, which is home to the university's School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences.

The project forms part of the wider redevelopment of the Brackenhurst Campus in Southwell.

Work has already started on the new flagship building, a main reception and adjoining state-of-the-art environmental centre, which will open in 2019 and form the heart of the campus.

Other work includes the refurbishment of Brackenhurst Farm to provide new student social space, as well as the creation of a larger teaching laboratory in the Bramley Building.

Clegg Construction is acting as the main contractor for the development of the new student accommodation.
