New plans from Unite Group for a student accommodation development at Derby Road and Radmarsh Road, adjacent to the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus, in Nottingham have been submitted to the city council.

While retaining a car showroom garage on Triumph Road, the scheme would see remaining buildings on the development site demolished to accommodate a 3, 5 and 6 storey building providing 690 student beds. The student accommodation would be distributed across two blocks. Student communal space would also be provided at ground floor.

The development is split in to three distinct areas: a civic building fronting Derby Road, student accommodation that runs north along Radmarsh Road and the towards The River Leen and student accommodation in a separate north block with extensive student collaboration space.
