University accommodation | Legrand United Kingdom

University accommodation

University accommodation presents challenges unlike any other part of an education facility and requires planning in a similar way to the construction of a multi-dwelling unit, you can visit our MDU page be clicking here. As universities attract students from many different social situations some buildings will offer a mix of accommodation providing the students with options to suit varying budgets and taste, we can help fit out those differing options whilst maintaining a comfortable and homely environment. 

Product considerations for university accommodation:

Creating a welcoming environment

The quality of student accommodation has improved greatly in recent years and moved away from a simple bedsit arrangement. The study space within each room has also greatly improved with an emphasis on encouraging a calm and creative environment. Our Incara range of in and on-desk products fits seamlessly into modern interior designs for better working spaces.

Safety and security: Door entry

As with any multi-dwelling unit, security is a high priority and a door entry system is a key component of that security plan. Our Bticino door entry systems are future-proof and robust and offer a selection of 2 wire systems designed with plug and play technology for up to 3900 apartments on a single backbone.  

Modular building

A typical accommodation cluster will consist of a corridor with up to 10 individual bedrooms and a communal kitchen/living area. This type of set up lends itself well to modular building, a process that can notably reduce construction time on site as well as costs. Find out more about our modular building solutions.
