Developments for Developing Minds

If you’re looking for high-quality student accommodation in first-class locations, Watkin Jones Student Accommodation provides you with outstanding options in a growing number of major university towns and cities.

We’re proud of the reputation we have established for planning, designing and creating new build and refurbishment developments which answer all the needs of today’s students.

By basing our developments around a ‘cluster’ concept, we are able to incorporate a range of communal facilities with each group of bedrooms. Fully fitted kitchens, lounges with TV points…meeting places which enhance the community living aspect of life in student halls. There are other communal areas throughout the developments, too, including launderettes and common rooms.

In the bedrooms, meanwhile, you will find a full range of furnishings including a bed, wardrobe, cabinet, and work station complete with chair and internet connection. They all have ensuite shower, washbasin and wc too.

Along with excellent individual and communal facilities, our developments also incorporate state of the art security systems and energy-efficient heating. Add this to prime locations with easy access to the university buildings and amenities, the local transport networks and the social and shopping centres – you have accommodation that’s simply perfect for today’s student lifestyle.
