New UCL student residence on Caledonian Road
29 August 2013
A brand new hall of residence, New Hall, on Caledonian Road, is due to open in 2013.
The accommodation will provide 350 extra bed spaces for UCL students
in a central London location with excellent local transport links to our main
campus in Bloomsbury.
We believe this is good news for UCL and our students, given the obvious challenge universities in the capital face in providing accommodation for students close to the campus.
accommodation comprises a mixture of three to six bedroom 'cluster' flats as
well as individual studios which have been designed with post-graduate students
New Hall also contains a central courtyard area, a large social learning space and two retail units.
challenging aspect of the building design was the need for us to incorporate
the façade, which is listed, into an appropriate hall of residence.
The final design complies with all necessary planning regulations in respect of outlook, amenity and natural daylight.
