Plans to build a major 702-bed student scheme at the Islands Quarter development have received the backing of city council planners.

The designs – drawn up by DAY Architects and submitted by Conygar – show a purpose-built student development, featuring studio and cluster apartments.

Nottingham City Council’s planning committee will vote on the proposals next Wednesday (September 22).

If voted through, the scheme is set to be available for occupation from September 2023 and will include sky lounges that offer views across the city and a pavilion with views onto a private courtyard space.

The student accommodation will sit alongside The Island Quarter’s plans for “intergenerational living” across the site, with rental apartments forming part of phase 1B – which is currently in for planning – and future plans for family housing.
