Fulfilling Students’ Needs
Q Studios is situated in the Hartshill area, with its wide variety of shops and services. It is Stoke-on-Trent’s brand new 300-apartment purpose built student property set within a beautifully landscaped courtyard, ideally situated between two established universities. It also sits opposite an upcoming student village development and directly adjacent to the brand new £282 million University Quarter.
With only 7% access to purpose built student en-suites citywide, demand is assured for these highly sought-after studio apartments. Indeed, only 21% of the city’s growing student population currently have access to any form of Purpose Built Student Accommodation – including university halls.
Each studio is completely self-contained, with an open plan living space that includes both study and social areas, as well as a double bed and fully-equipped kitchen. The en-suite bathroom contains a cubicle shower, wash basin and toilet. Priced from £69,950.
Stoke-on-Trent is home to 22,700 students, enrolled at Keele University and Staffordshire University with only 18.4% of students having access to university-owned halls of residence. What’s more, there are only 605 units in privately-owned Purpose Built Student Accommodation across Stoke, meaning 17,941 students have no access to their preferred accommodation. At 15.9%, the city’s proportion of overseas students is three times larger than the UK average (Knight Frank) – a key demographic for Purpose Built Student Accommodation. Stoke-on-Trent is located in England’s West Midlands region, just an hour’s drive from both Liverpool and Manchester, and a 90-minute train ride from London.
The University Quarter is a £282 million initiative designed to create a state-of-the-art learning site in Stoke-on-Trent. Covering approximately 400 acres, it represents the largest collaborative project for higher education in the UK. UniQ is home for Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent College and Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College, with the six-year construction process completed in 2016. Located adjacent to Q Studios and Stoke’s railway station, this investment has rejuvenated the city centre and is encouraging further commercial and residential developments. It is part of a strategy to attract 17,000 more students to Stoke-on-Trent over the next decade.
