100 Nottingham students secure slice of luxury

Over 100 Nottingham students have snapped up studios in the city centre’s newest and most expensive student accommodation, Hydrogen.

Located on Goldsmith Street opposite the Theatre Royal, the development is being marketed by FHP Student Living, who will also be responsible for managing the site once opened ahead of the next academic year.

Less than 60 studios remain available and students are encouraged to visit the site’s show room and marketing suite to avoid missing out on Nottingham’s most lavish student offering.

The 162 studios are situated just on the doorstep of Nottingham Trent University’s city campus and within walking distance of Market Square and the city’s other main attractions.

With penthouse studios costing up to £220 per week, private parking and a boutique cinema room, Hydrogen is a far cry from traditional halls of residence. The six-floor development offers unrivalled views over Nottingham city centre, with each studio being equipped with state of the art bathroom and kitchen facilities.

The demand for these high-end studios highlights the changing landscape in the expectations of university students, no longer wishing to ‘slum it’ in dilapidated student houses, preferring to pay more money for a luxurious living space.

David Hargreaves, director at FHP Student Living explains: “From the moment we opened our marketing suite at the beginning of February, interest from students across Nottingham and beyond has been exceptionally high. In fact, within the first week of opening, 50 studios were reserved.

“Over the past few years, we have seen a clear shift in demand from Nottingham’s student population in terms of where they choose to live – particularly after leaving university-owned halls of residence in their first year. More students are now searching for options in the city centre – with easier access to the Nottingham’s main attractions and facilities.

“With the demands on students to complete their university studies with the top grades and skills in order to secure jobs in an increasingly competitive jobs market, more and more time is now being spent by students in their homes studying and completing additional work. These private studios will allow students to focus on their studies, with minimal distraction.”
