University of York Residences York, UK

Sheppard Robson has designed a major new student residential development for the University of York, with the project designed to create a serene, waterside location whilst forming a new gateway into the campus.

For client University of York and Equitix and a team led by Graham Construction, the project will add 1,480 student dwellings set within two residential colleges.

Student welfare is paramount, with the design focused on harnessing the benefits of the project’s natural setting. The project has been broken down into 18 blocks that step down from four to three storeys as you get closer to the waterfront, helping frame views of the lake and also embedding the project within the landscape.
