New residences for 2020

New Residences for 2020

We are creating over 1,500 new self-catered student bedrooms at three locations across our Streatham Campus.

The new developments, East Park, Moberly and Spreytonway will all be located on campus and are scheduled to open in September 2020 and September 2021.

The East Park residence will provide a mix of high-quality en-suite rooms and standard accommodation with a ratio of two students to a bathroom; the Moberly residence will provide standard accommodation with a ratio of two students to a bathroom and Spreytonway residence will have high-quality en-suite rooms.

Each of the residences will feature a range of multi-purpose social and study spaces enabling our students to both socialise and study.

East Park, our largest student residence development since 2012, will provide 1,182 modern self-catered bedrooms. This development is split into two phases; the first phase will open for application from 6 April 2020. The second phase will be ready from September 2021.

Students living in East Park phase one will be in close proximity to the phase two development works. Phase two construction works will take place Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 18:00 and Saturdays from 08:00 to 13:00.

The phase two works will be safely separated from residents living in phase one, and we will ensure student safety remains our top priority. We will post weekly lookahead documents detailing the nature of the upcoming works online.

Students living at East Park will not be offered any compensation or rent reduction during the construction works.
