Collegelands is Vastint Hospitality’s first student housing development in Europe. The use of  part-modular, cross-laminated timber construction will reduce typical construction time, improve build quality and enhance the overall sustainability credentials of the building.  

We have designed an S-shaped building which encloses a private courtyard to the south together with a semi-public courtyard to the North. The building will achieve Gold Standard under the LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification scheme.

The six-storey building has accommodation for 432 students with a mix of standard, cluster and wheelchair rooms.

Standard studios have integrated kitchen facilities, while cluster and accessible studios share one of the four communal kitchens on each floor.
