The University of Manchester has launched a search for a student housing partner to undertake a significant redevelopment project at its Fallowfield campus, according to local media outlets.
The contract, valued between £275 million and £400 million (€321 million and €467 million/$348 million and $506 million), involves the design, construction, financing and operation of new student halls.
The project includes replacing existing bedspaces with up to 3,300 new ones, resulting in a total of 5,400 beds across the Fallowfield campus. The project is part of the university’s broader strategy to enhance the student experience and meet the growing demand for quality housing. The new halls will feature modern amenities and are expected to contribute to the overall attractiveness of the university to prospective students.
