The All Saints area of Norwich city centre will experience the arrival of 228 new residents this weekend (12/13 September) when a new purpose-built hall of residence is opened for Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) students.
All Saints Green, located next to Norwich Bus Station on the corner of Queens Road and Bull Lane, is exclusive to NUA and will be the highest specification student accommodation in the City.
The accommodation provides exceptionally high quality en-suite living spaces, an eight floor common room with stunning views of the city and high speed broadband throughout, all within easy walking distance of the NUA campus. The development includes a Grade II Listed annex converted into a yoga studio and café, a landscaped public square and Brompton Bike Hire facilities for both student and public use.
All Saints Green has been delivered by Alumno Developments, which has previously partnered with education providers to provide student accommodation in London, Birmingham and Bristol.
Angela Robson, NUA Deputy Vice-Chancellor, says: “We are delighted with the accommodation at All Saints Green. Adding to the University’s student accommodation provision is a key priority, especially in a year when NUA is awaiting the arrival of its largest ever first year cohort of undergraduate students. The All Saints Green hall delivers exceptionally high quality living spaces equipped to meet the standards of our highly rated student experience which, for the third year running, has been ranked as the best among all specialist arts universities in the UK by the National Student Survey.”
All Saints Green is one of a number of campus building projects being completed at NUA this year. The University will shortly open the newly restored historic Boardman House, providing studios and teaching spaces for its school of Architecture and new media labs and recording studios for its Film and Moving Image Production course. At the same time, NUA’s new digital creative incubation centre will open in the completely renovated Cavendish House building on St Andrews Street, where the start-up business incubation unit, a digital user experience research lab and the University’s new East Gallery will be co-located.
Staff and students featured in NUA press releases are available for further comment.
Our academic staff are leading practitioners and researchers in the fields of the arts, design and media. They are available to provide expert comment on regional, national and international news stories related to higher education and the creative arts.
All camera crews and photographers need advance permission to operate on the NUA campus. Alternatively the University has a wealth of photography and footage which can be provided on request.
Members of the press are welcome to attend all events at NUA. Most exhibitions on the campus, including the Degree Shows, will have a private view event in advance of the public opening for the press and special guests. Details of these events are available on request.
We are delighted to arrange campus tours and on-campus interviews with staff and students.
