The University of Lincoln have announced plans for a new 190-bed student village. The move has been done to combat what the University suggests is a recent swelling in student numbers at the institution. Read on for the full details.
The plans are for the student village to be constructed near the Beevor Street area of Lincoln. The rooms would be split across two building units. 190 rooms wouldn’t solve the issue of a lack of accommodation at the University, but it would go some way to helping the issue. The rooms would include en-suite bathrooms, and shared kitchen facilities. There has been a strong demand in recent years for an increase in high-quality student accommodation at Universities across the United Kingdom.
However, planning permission for the plans is yet to be granted. The plans will be brought before the City of Lincoln council – where it will be discussed. The council will take multiple views into consideration – including the fact that some might suggest the building wouldn’t fit in with the surroundings of the local area. But the University will suggest it is important for the institution to have more accommodation to offer potential students. The council will eventually have the final say on the plans.
The University of Lincoln have suggested that the population of the University has risen by almost 2,000 in just four academic years – a marked rise. They also believe that these numbers will continue to rise in the forthcoming years. There were approximately 13,000 students at the University in the last academic year.
