Works Starts on New Halls for The University of Hull
Work has started on the latest landmark in the University of Hull's multimillion-pound campus upgrade programme.
Professor Calie Pistorius, vice-chancellor of the university, and Paul Sewell, managing director of Hull-based Sewell Group, performed a ground-breaking ceremony on the site at the northern end of campus, off Inglemire Lane.
Designed in partnership with GSS Architecture, the development will provide accommodation for 560 students: mainly comprising eight-bedroom flats alongside a smaller number of four-bedroom flats, deluxe flats, studio flats and wheelchair-accessible flats, plus communal social and learning spaces.
It will boast contemporary architecture alongside the latest technology and be set in landscaped grounds. It is anticipated that the new build's first student in in 2016.
