‘The Green’ is a student accommodation development at the University of Bradford’s main campus.
The development encompasses a ten-block student residential village, comprising 1026 study bedrooms in ‘townhouse’ and ‘cluster flat’ arrangements. It also includes a hub building accommodating communal laundry facilities, offices and student facilities, and an energy centre building housing energy services plant and equipment.
The development was funded by joint venture partners Welbeck Land and Hayaat Group, with support from the University of Bradford, Yorkshire Forward and Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
BREEAM certification was a requirement of the University of Bradford’s Ecoversity policy, in addition to funding agreements and the aspirations of the developer and designers GWP Architecture.
