Work has now finished on a new £4.3m student residence on Bishop Grosseteste University’s campus on Longdales Road in Lincoln. The new accommodation replaces the existing Wickham hall of residence, which is currently being demolished. The Constance Stewart halls of residence will also be renovated as part of the scheme.

“Once this new development is complete we will have 126 en suite rooms on campus, which we haven’t had before,” said Stephen Deville, Director of Resources at Bishop Grosseteste University.

Mr Deville added that while the halls of residence are being improved, the number of undergraduate students at the university will remain the same.

“Strict government controls on student numbers at all universities mean we have no plans to increase undergraduate student numbers for the foreseeable future,” he said.

“However, this new development will give us a good mix of accommodation to offer to students and improve our ability to accommodate conference visitors when the students are not here.”
