Waverley Borough Council’s Joint Planning Committee has just resolved to grant planning permission for 252 new en-suite bedrooms across five purpose-built student accommodation buildings, subject to the completion of a legal agreement.
The new residences will consist of two three-storey buildings and three four-storey buildings, built on the site of Main Hall, which has now surpassed its useful life.
As part of the development, UCA will be creating new and improved communal spaces across the campus and upgrading its car parking and cycling facilities.
Work is expected to begin on the new accommodation buildings next year.
Further details can be obtained from the University by email.
The university has also invited architects to submit designs ideas for a planned Business School for the Creative Industries at its Epsom campus.
The project is expected to comprise a new-build element together with reconfiguration and linking to existing estate to provide a 40,000 sq ft facility.
