The Moulsecoomb Campus combines the expertise of four of Bouygues Construction’s UK companies. Financed, designed and developed by Uliving, a subsidary of Linkcity specialising in student accommodation, over 800 student bedrooms as well as students’ union and fitness facilities, will be built by Bouygues UK. Once complete, Bouygues Energies & Services will maintain, operate and provide the lifecycle of this facility for 50 years.
The five new towers at the Moulsecoomb Campus, ranging in height from eight to eighteen floors, will provide over 800 affordable student bedrooms and space at ground level for a new Students’ Union and fitness facilities.
Delivered over two phase, Phase One will see the delivery of the first 400 rooms, and Phase Two with the remaining 400. The project also includes:
- A new academic building with modern and flexible teaching spaces
- A new Students’ Union
- New fitness facilities
- A new multi-storey car park and improved cycling facilities
- A new pedestrian bridge linking both sides of the campus
- Improved social spaces with extensive landscaping and planting
Designed by HASSELL architects, this high-quality student residence will be built on the eastern side of the Moulsecoomb campus and forms part of a vast transformation project aiming to turn it into a sustainable and innovative campus.
The entire campus development is being built to the highest environmental standards with an emphasis on sustainability and will incorporate over 300 native species trees across the campus.
“We’re proud to be investing in the future of our university, making Brighton a great place to live, work and study. The transformation of our Moulsecoomb campus is a vital part of this and will provide our students with access to modern accommodation, new teaching and learning spaces as well as new social and fitness facilities. Uliving has a track record of creating exceptional student accommodation schemes across the UK and we’re delighted to be partnering with them to maintain Brighton’s position as one of the best places to study in the UK.”Professor Debra Humphris, Vice-Chancellor, University of Brighton
