Princess Royal opens new student accommodation; UCL residences win Hospitality Assured accreditation
9 February 2004
The Princess Royal opened new student residences on the old site of the Royal Free Hospital on 4 February 2004.
Professor John Foreman, Dean of Students at UCL, said: "This building is part of a wider strategy to increase the number of high quality, affordable student residences within close proximity of the main campus."
At the opening, UCL was awarded Hospitality Assured accreditation, an important indicator of the quality of the service in residences that UCL provides to its students. The building was designed by architects Fielden Clegg Bradley, who have already received an award for their use of copper in the building.
UCL student residences are also open to the public during summer vacations,
providing inexpensive central London accommodation, from single and twin study
rooms to self-contained flats, catered or self-catered.
