Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) will significantly increase its student accommodation provision after signing an agreement for its students to have exclusive occupation of the new All Saints Green development in Norwich city centre.

Alumno Developments, student accommodation specialist and partner of NUA in the project, will break ground on the brand new high quality student accommodation on Friday 19 September. The development will make 228 additional rooms available to new students by 2016.

Professor John Last, NUA Vice-Chancellor, says: “All Saints Green is another keystone in NUA’s commitment to building the highest quality student experience. The University is already recognised in the National Student Survey as providing the best student satisfaction among all specialist arts universities in the UK and is ranked as the 7th most welcoming higher education institution for students starting their university journey. Our continued investment in our campus and resources positions NUA at the forefront of arts, design and media degree provision.”

The All Saints Green development joins a number of campus building and renovation projects at NUA. At the start of the year the University reopened its Guntons Building with a remodelled entrance hall and atrium, which provided a spectacular venue for its recent MA Degree Show.

Last year NUA was awarded funding by the Higher Education Funding Council and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership for England toward the £3 million development of a Digital Centre for Innovation which will open in September 2015, providing a quality incubation space for new digital creative business with close links to the NUA academic community.

In March NUA completed the purchase of the prestigious city centre Boardman House on Princes Street. The building is currently undergoing refurbishment and will open in September 2015, accommodating NUA’s expanding architecture course and additional media studio space.
