Inside a Student Bedroom

The first student bedrooms are starting to take shape!  Cohen Quad’s building team have now begun to construct the individual rooms that our students will occupy.

Cohen Quad will provide accommodation for 90 students (including five bedrooms specially adapted for wheelchair users).  Each room will have a bed, large desk, shelving, storage and plenty of natural light.  The large windowsill doubles up as additional seating space.

All the bedrooms are en suite; click here to read our earlier post about Cohen Quad’s modern bathrooms.

In other news, the first floor slab has now been cast across the site, the second floor slab has been cast by the original façade at the east of the site, and the stair and lift cores are progressing to the third floor on the east wing.  Grey skies cannot dampen our enthusiasm!

More updates soon.
