The Alscot Road residencies will provide community space, a large common room and cinema space. These common areas have been designed to offer contemporary, well-equipped spaces for flexible activity and multiple uses. A full-time onsite management team will be on hand to ensure students have a good relationship with neighbours, and act as a point of contact for local people.
To address the lack of meeting facilities in the immediate neighbourhood, we propose that the above facilities can be shared within a managed access arrangement via the local residents groups.
The promotion of shared facilities will help connect and integrate the building with the local neighbourhood and the resident student community.
