Nottingham’s student population still prefers the city centre when searching for a place to live according to student accommodation specialist FHP Student Living.
More than 100 students from Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham have already reserved rooms for the 2017/18 academic year at the provider’s flagship student accommodation, Hydrogen.
Opened in September 2016, the Goldsmith Street development contains 164 studios, ranging from £135 per week, up to £250 per week. Less than 60 studios now remain available and students are encouraged to visit the site’s show room and marketing suite to avoid missing out on Nottingham’s most lavish student offering.
With penthouse studios, concierge service and a private games room, featuring a pool table, table tennis table and even a piano, Hydrogen is a far cry from traditional halls of residence. The six-floor development offers unrivalled views over Nottingham city centre, with each studio being equipped with state of the art bathroom and kitchen facilities.
It’s not just Hydrogen that is feeling the rise in demand; student accommodation providers across Nottingham are feeling the trend of movement towards the city centre, resulting in the abundance of new developments cropping up all the time.
Jonty Green, head of FHP Student Living, explains:
“Students across Nottingham and the rest of the Midlands are becoming more demanding in terms of the standard of desired accommodation required, and providers and landlords have been quick to realise this.
“En-suite bathrooms, social spaces and even on-site communal facilities have now, in some cases, become an expectation when searching for a place to live. As such, demand for traditional low cost student housing in areas such as Radford & Forest Fields has taken a fall in recent years.
“More students are now searching for luxury options in the city centre – with easier access to the Nottingham’s main attractions and facilities.”
