Expressions of interest were received from 110 architectural teams wishing to be considered from the competition to design and construct 400 new student residences on the University of Warwick's campus.
Six teams have been shortlisted to take part in the design phase of the competition and will prepare concept design proposals for the first phase of residences, with a target of 400 study bedrooms, within a site close to Rootes Residences.

The site identified by the University for the new residences is in the central part of that campus, and is within a few minutes walk of the University's Library, main social facilities and the Arts Centre.
The six teams are:-
Fraser Brown MacKenna Architects

Design submissions will be made by a deadline of 25 July 2008.
