Goldsmiths, University of London, has signed a deal with student accommodation specialists Campus Living Villages (CLV) to operate the Chesterman House, Raymont Hall, and Surrey House Annexe student housing assets.
The agreement will see CLV in charge of the day-to-day running of the three halls of residence from the beginning of the new academic year.
As part of the partnership the company is to undertake renovation works on the halls, with the refreshed accommodation providing new spaces in which students can live, study and socialise.
Liz Bromley, Goldsmiths Registrar and Secretary, said:
"We are delighted to be working with CLV, an industry leader with a proven track record in delivering outstanding student accommodation. The partnership will have a direct and material impact on the experience of students living, working and studying at Goldsmiths - and ensure we remain an exciting and affordable choice for students contemplating higher education in London."
"On a wider level, the agreement will unlock the potential of our campus by kick-starting our Estates Masterplan and help us to create a landmark academic building which will give us a new base from which we can continue to produce world-leading research and first-class teaching. This move represents an exciting new chapter for the university."
Gary Clarke, Chief Executive Officer (UK), Campus Living Villages, commented:
"Our partnership with Goldsmiths reflects our commitment to redefining affordable and high-quality living conditions for students in the UK. This will be our third Student Village in London, and residents can expect CLV's unique hallmarks: enhanced accommodation, round-the-clock security and support, greater comfort, increased technology and superior communal areas."
