Held in Birmingham, the Awards recognise the innovators and trailblazers in student housing in a celebration of all of the hard work taking place in the sector over the past year.

Garden Halls, one of the largest student developments in London, was shortlisted alongside four other high-calibre institutions. The University is very proud to have delivered this project in partnership with UPP which offers modern accommodation combined with exceptional architectural quality.

The Garden Halls redevelopment has helped the University of London to continue its current trajectory, and to maintain its position as one of the most significant academic institutions in the country.

This award is the culmination of a great deal of hard work by countless people across many different organisations and we want to thank all those involved.

Garden Halls has also recently won a Building Award for ‘Offsite Project of the Year’, and a Housing Design Award with ‘Special Mention for Offsite’. It was Highly Commended at the Brick Awards in the Worldwide Category and has been shortlisted in the CUBO Awards, ABB LEAF Awards, NLA Awards, Camden Design Awards, AJ Awards, the London Planning Awards, and the Property Week Student Accommodation Awards.
