The team here at Collegiate were thrilled to find that we have been awarded not just one but two places in the top ten UK’s Most Luxurious Halls of Residence ranking from Design Curial.

Dedicated to all those with a love of design, interiors, art and architecture, Design Curial is a site for those with a sense of style who want to share contemporary ideas and inspiration. Its review of halls of residence covered everything from privately owned accommodation to university-provided halls. With a whole country to compete against, we were absolutely delighted to find out that two or our buildings had been selected for inclusion in the top ten.

Our stylish Hope Street Apartments in Liverpool took ninth place, impressing the Design Curial judges thanks to their spacious and considerate design, which ensures that tenants have plenty of room to study, to relax and to cook. The team also praised our entertainment offering at Hope Street, where we’ve not only provided an on-site cinema and private gym, but also the popular Residents Club Lounge, which features a pool table, table football, elegant dining and more. The judges concluded, “it really is the ultimate indulgence for student life.”

Down in Exeter, our Dean Clarke Lofts site made it not only into the top ten, but into the top five, taking the number five spot thanks to its contemporary and elegant use of space in the former Dean Clarke House hospital building. The split-level, light-filled apartments maximise the building’s features while adding a stylish, modern twist that sees residents living in decadent and deliciously comfortable surroundings. From plush sofas to deluxe bathrooms, the apartments offer everything the discerning student could wish for. Even the views over the city are fantastic.

As the Design Curial team pointed out, residents at Dean Clarke Lofts also get to enjoy the building’s Cozy Club – the restaurant/bar area sited in one the former hospital’s wings. As an added bonus, they are granted access to the private gym, cinema, study rooms and communal areas of one of our other sites just moments away.

We love providing student accommodation that is a cut above the rest and knowing that Collegiate residents are spending their university days in some of the best designed and most luxurious accommodation in the UK. Now, having two lots of external recognition of that fact has absolutely made our day! We are not the only ones who think this is student living. Just better.

We still have a few rooms left at cities up and down the UK for September 2015, so why not contact us today to see if you can share in our award-winning accommodation?
