New halls open doors

Lucky students starting Warwick for the autumn 2012 term are among the first to move into our newest Halls of Residence, Bluebell and Sherbourne.

Welcoming its first residents in 2011, Bluebell, situated between Rootes Residences and Tocil Ponds, has 505 student bedrooms, designed to high sustainability standards and incorporating a range of environmental features such as natural ventilation, natural lighting and high levels of insulation.

Construction on Sherbourne, the new halls at Lakeside, began in July 2011. The development comprises six student accommodation blocks, each four storeys in height, containing a total of 527 student bedrooms within cluster flats. The design of the new development is intended to be sensitive to the rural surroundings of Lakeside. The blocks have curved roofs to lower the scale and make the buildings less imposing on the surrounding landscape, and rooms in the roof have panoramic views over the countryside and campus.
