The new Cryfields Village student accommodation is centred in the heart of the University of Warwick. The £57m, three phased project was completed in 2021 providing 828 new student bedrooms in a mixture of townhouses and cluster blocks.
The Village Hall provided office space, a laundrette, post room, cinema room and student meeting areas.
Wendy Roberts, Director of Staff and Student Accommodation in Estates said:
“The aim of Cryfield Village was to create a new benchmark for residential design on campus, that responded to student changing needs and offered variety of accommodation to allow students to live as a community. One of the key drivers was to deliver variety in design, let length and price so students with different requirements can live together.
We are so proud to have a new neighbourhood of 1,000 students, with it’s own village hall, 6 and 12 bed townhouses, self-contained studios and elegant apartment buildings. We have a wonderful new addition to our campus accommodation provision is receiving extremely positive reviews from our students.”
