Maureen McDermott, Director of Student Accommodation, said: “Nido Student Living addresses the need for better quality living and, in particular, studio living in one of the world’s leading cities for both UK and international students. With foreign students bringing in approximately �4 billion a year to the economy, there is a staggering lack of quality student accommodation to support them. British universities provide accommodation for less than a quarter of potential demand.”
Room prices range from �210 per week per person sharing a twin room to �330 per week per person for a single studio.
