A new block of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) in Leicester has been proposed between Leicester's two universities.

Located on a disused car dealership, Prime Student Living is looking to transform the site into student accommodation.

The horseshoe-shaped scheme consists of en-suite clusters and studio flats, with a total of 206 bedrooms proposed. The accommodation would also come equipped with a gym, cinema room, communal lounge, and a rooftop terrace.

According to the applicant, the site is around a 13-minute walk from both the University of Leicester and De Montfort University.
