How far would your uni make it in a modelling contest?

19th April 2016

It might seem a strange question, but it’s actually one that a recently published picture gallery in the Telegraph can shed some light on. The newspaper has examined universities up and down the UK in order to come up with a list of the country’s most beautiful universities.

Of course at Collegiate we’re all about providing beautiful student accommodation, so to find out that many of our UK student properties are paired with some of the country’s most visually appealing uni buildings was fabulous news.

Upon inspection of the ranking, we discovered that Collegiate’s stunning student properties are conveniently located for six of the top ten most beautiful unis in the UK.

Cardiff Uni took the number two spot in the ranking, thanks in large part to its striking main building. Collegiate now has four student properties in Cardiff, offering elegant apartments with amenities including everything from on-site cinemas to private gyms.

Bristol, where we also have four fabulous student accommodation developments, was third in the beautiful universities ranking, thanks to the stunning Victoria Rooms at the Faculty of Music.

In fifth place was Glasgow University, with its awe-inspiring gothic architecture. Collegiate’s Glasgow student accommodation has proven so popular that we’ve added two new sites to our offering in the city over the past year.

Birmingham University took eighth place, with the Aston Webb building noted for its striking elegance. Our Birmingham student accommodation is also notable – for its unrivalled facilities and unashamed luxury. All three of our Birmingham student properties are part of the Collegiate Prestige Collection thanks to their super-luxe features like cinema rooms, gyms and private dining rooms.

In ninth place is Exeter University. While those studying in the ghastly physics building might wonder at the ranking, it was Reed Hall on the Streatham Campus that elevated Exeter Uni into the top ten. Collegiate’s three Exeter student accommodation sites are also part of our Prestige Collection, including everything from individually designed loft apartments to amazing amenities, all in ideal city centre locations.

The final establishment to make it into the top ten most beautiful unis was Edinburgh University, thanks to the Gothic architecture of New College (which actually dates back to 1843). Our student accommodation in Edinburgh now includes three exceptionally popular properties with fabulous city centre locations and packed with great facilities.

And if you uni doesn’t have the looks to make it into the top ten? Don’t worry – you can still enjoy some of the most beautiful student accommodation in the UK thanks to your Collegiate apartment!
