In 2020, Beyond the Box will have created The Hub, which provides new shared facilities for students, 152 new high-quality student studio bedrooms, and a transformation of our outdoor space.
We also have a rolling programme to refurbish our existing accommodation.
We have enhanced the outdoor space with new communal gardens and courtyards, shared eating, socialising and leisure spaces.
The Hub, that is at the heart of Avon Way, is where residents can come together to socialise, relax and make those priceless university memories. It includes a lounge with comfortable chill out areas, large TV, vending machine and ping pong tables. Helping to create the ideal environment for studying, there are shared study spaces with break-out and quiet study areas. But we realise it is not all work work work, so we’ve provided gym facilities and a cinema room.

The large black bins are located in the car park at the rear end of site, near the bike shed, and are for general waste. You must ensure all rubbish goes into the bins; any rubbish not in bins is chargeable. Do not leave lids open as it encourages pests. Check all bins as the ones at the back may be empty. Do not dump rubbish around the site or in hallways.
