Leading student accommodation provider Student Roost has opened the doors of its fifth property in Nottingham.
Deakins Place, which opened in September to welcome its first residents, forms part of the Nottingham Student Quarter alongside existing Student Roost property Nottingham Two.
Fully booked for the 2022/23 academic year, Deakins Place is situated just a five-minute walk from the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus, and has local transport links for those residents who are studying at Nottingham Trent University or who wish to explore the city centre.
Deakins Place offers a range of high specification studio and en-suite rooms for 703 students, as well as a free-of-charge gym and yoga studio, communal lounge, and multimedia lounge available for all residents to use.
Residents at the neighbouring Nottingham Two property are also able to use and enjoy these spaces, and Deakins Place residents can also head across to Nottingham Two to sample the brand-new social spaces, which were developed earlier this summer.
The property also has a hosting kitchen, which can be booked by students who wish to show off their cooking skills or celebrate with friends.
A number of cooking-based events will also be hosted by the property team throughout the year. At other Student Roost properties across the UK, hosting kitchens have been used for collaborations with local businesses to run free cooking classes for residents.
All bills, including broadband, gas, electric, and water, are included in the rent price of each room, so students will not face the rising energy and broadband costs this winter.
Although Deakins Place is Student Roost’s fifth property in Nottingham, the company is the third largest student accommodation provider in the UK, with over 50 properties in 22 cities across the country, including Nottingham, Belfast, Edinburgh, and Swansea. Each year, 23,000 students call Student Roost their home during their university life.
Deakins Place is one of four brand new Student Roost properties to open in 2022. In time for the start of this academic year, Student Roost opened new properties in York and Brighton, as well as its first co-living development in Bristol. A further 680 beds were added to its Warwick property The Oaks.
Nathan Goddard, CEO at Student Roost, said:
“The opening of Deakins Place and the creation of the Nottingham Student Quarter has been a pivotal moment for the Nottingham student market.
“It’s fantastic to see the doors opened and residents moving in at our fifth Nottingham property, which has been in the works since 2020.
“With Nottingham Two by its side, Deakins Place will become a firm favourite with students studying in the city, and the Nottingham Student Quarter will be at the forefront of long-lasting friendships, collaborations, and community amongst our residents.”
