The development, next to the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus, is planned to open by September 2023, in time for the start of the 2023/24 academic year.

It will consist of 661 cluster flats with en-suite bathrooms and 39 studio apartments.

The development aims to be net-zero carbon once open, running on  renewable electricity with solar panels installed on the roof and an all-electric heating system, including air-source heat pumps.

The complex will also provide a commercial building for external use. The total development costs will be £57m, Unite Students said.
