Newman University has opened its new student halls of residence.
The new accommodation is called Cofton Hall, named after Cofton Park in south Birmingham which was the site of patron John Henry Newman’s beatification ceremony in September 2010.
Nolan Associates were the engineering consultant responsible for the structural frame, foundation, external works and drainage design. Nolan Associates worked with the main contractor Morgan Sindall.
The development cost £7.8 million and comprises 108 en-suite bedrooms with shared communal kitchen and living room space and is due to welcome students from January.
Professor Scott Davidson said: “We’re very pleased to announce the opening of our brand new halls at Newman University.
“We are investing £22 million over the next five years to improve our campus and this stage of development is a significant part of those improvements.
“The new halls are a great addition to our campus and will give students fantastic accommodation options during their years of study.
