Construction work on the £9m development is on schedule and the building will welcome its first residents this September. 85 new student rooms will be created, together with a resident students’ study centre and substantial garden areas.
The £60,000 grant from the Wolfson Foundation is one of the largest donations received for the project, which has also been supported by a wide variety of individuals and trusts. A successful alumni and friends room-naming initiative has seen 34 rooms named at £5000 each.
The Wolfson Foundation is an independent charity that awards grants to support and promote excellence in the fields of science, health, education and the arts. The funding is only awarded after a rigorous review, therefore the award not only provides financial support but also recognises the quality of our graduate accommodation project.
We are very grateful to the Foundation for its kind support.
