The project provides 1,480 student residences along with social spaces that act as a ‘front door’ into the accommodation. It spans across two residential colleges – named after key LGBTQ+ figures, Anne Lister and David Kato – which form a new gateway into the Heslington East Campus.
Anne Lister College is the first phase of the project. The brief was to form a key addition to the University’s ‘Campus for the Future’ masterplan, combining a long-established ambition to create a neighbourhood campus with a drive to modernise facilities through an approach that has sustainability, wellness, and innovation at its heart.
