Willmott Dixon's housebuilding expertise includes development of new student accommodation and creation of campus communities.

Our work includes design and construction of student accommodation for clients such as universities, NHS Trusts, further education colleges and registered social landlords.

We understand the specific challenges of student accommodation, including working in live environments on university campuses with students in residence, carrying out phasing and programming works in line with academic timetables, plus minimising noise and disruption to academic study.

Our innovative approach includes off-site manufacturing techniques, such as lightweight steel frame and factory-assembled bathroom pods, to increase quality and efficiency in delivering student accommodation.

We also use our fit-out expertise to deliver student accommodation fully-furnished if required.

Our high-rise residential experience means we can also deliver schemes with high density if space is restricted.
