The University’s Greenbank site will benefit from major investment
The University of Liverpool has begun work on a £90 million project to create new residences and renovate existing buildings on its Mossley Hill student accommodation site.
The investment will provide a self-contained student village, including new catering and sports facilities at the University’s Greenbank site. It forms part of an overall £250 million project that has already seen the opening of Vine Court student residences at the University’s city campus, as well as the construction of Crown Place, due to open to students in September 2014.
As new residences open, older accommodation buildings at the University will close. Dale Hall, part of Carnatic site, will officially close in 2015, and it’s sporting facilities, which include squash and tennis courts, will be upgraded and rehoused at Greenbank halls, where they will be available to students, staff, and the local community from 2016.
The University’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience, Professor Kelvin Everest, said: “We know that there is increasing demand for accommodation on our city campus. The opening of Vine Court in 2012 and Crown Place later this year, will provide more than 2,000 additional rooms. Students, however, also tell us that they enjoy living at our residences in suburban Liverpool due to its proximity to Sefton Park, restaurants, and shops.
“By investing in this site we hope to better meet the requirements of our diverse student community and provide an environment that matches the high standards of this popular residential area of Liverpool. We also hope that the local community will take advantage of our new sporting facilities during the summer months.”
The University is also developing new residences at its Philharmonic Court and Great Newton sites, providing state-of-the art accommodation and further increasing the number of student rooms available on-campus.
