Spring Place – Student Accommodation
Students at the University of Bedfordshire in Luton can now enjoy greater choice of stylish and affordable accommodation with the opening of Spring Place. Located less than half a mile from the university’s campus, Spring Place is a high specification, purpose built student housing development.
The need for more accommodation in the area has been growing in recent years as demand for course places at the award-winning university has increased. Construction on the Spring Place development began in August 2015 with the demolition of the existing building on site before the substantial project took shape over the course of 15 months. The final touches are now being made ahead of welcoming the first student occupants in 2017.
Designed with students at the centre of thinking, Spring Place predominantly consists of fully furnished en-suite rooms connected by a shared common room and kitchen as well as a small number of private studio apartments.
Backed by property investment group Experience Invest and managed by Opto Living, the development consists of a number of luxurious features that make it stand out from the classic student experience.
Naturally, study spaces and meeting rooms will be available for individual and group work but a real effort has been made to introduce elements that encourage students to make the most of their university experience. All interior elements are stylish in design with contemporary artwork and furnishings.
A fully equipped on site gym will negate the need for expensive memberships while entertainment will be in the form of a cinema room, games room with pool table, LCD televisions and gaming stations. Also the outdoor basketball, volleyball courts and ping pong tables will come into their own come the summer months.
Within walking distance of Luton train station that operates hourly and with 22 minute fast trains to central London, Spring Place has excellent transport links. Controlled building access and 24/7 CCTV mean residents can be sure of their safety.
Opto Living manages two other properties in Luton – Park House and Chapel Street. Park House is a popular choice for University of Bedfordshire students and has been fully occupied since opening a couple of years ago. Opto Living makes sure all properties are designed for today’s student and remove traditional hassles of university living.
In operation for twelve years, Experience Invest offers support and opportunity to property investors both in the UK and internationally.
