It was today confirmed that Uliving has been identified as preferred bidder for the construction and management of new student accommodation as part of the development of the University of Brighton’s Moulsecoomb campus.

The new 800-bed development of student accommodation forms the centrepiece of the wider transformation of the university’s single biggest campus as part of a masterplan that includes the neighbouring Preston Barracks site. Alongside the accommodation it will also feature a new 6,400 sqm academic building, a new Student’s Union and fitness facility.

Commenting on the announcement, Sue McHugh, Director of Campus Strategy at the University, said: “We are pleased to announce Uliving as preferred bidder for the new student accommodation at the Moulsecoomb campus. This is a hugely important development for the University and the City and delivers on a key commitment in our current five-year strategy.”

Sam Veal, CEO of Uliving added: “It’s great to have been selected as preferred bidder by the University of Brighton. The university’s approved masterplan to transform their Moulescoomb Campus is the catalyst for an exciting period of growth and development. We are delighted to play our part, creating and operating the new high-quality accommodation and delivering a first-class student experience.”

It is anticipated that a full contract award will be announced by the end of May subject to successful completion of the preferred bidder stage.
