The unused site on Queens Road in Coventry has just had plans approved by Coventry City Council to turn the vacant site into a 32-bedroom development for students. The project consists of one-bedroom apartments and is only a 13-minute walk to the campus, making it an ideal location. The plans are to build what is described as "much-needed purpose-built student accommodation."

The planned development is behind Sovereign House which will remain unaffected as well as the offices neighbouring the site that currently houses Penmans solicitors.

According to our data at StuRents, the number of purpose-built one bedroom apartments in Coventry is around 400. This move would see an 8% increase in purpose-built student accommodation, providing a much-needed addition to the number of one-bedroom flats on offer for students in the city of Coventry.
