Official opening of Olympic Way next to Wembley Stadium – 24 October 2016
Thursday 20 October saw the official opening of one of Unite Students’ latest showcase properties; Olympic Way, located in the newly regenerated area around Wembley Stadium.
The brand new building opened its doors to students from Middlesex University at the beginning of term and provides 629 en-suite rooms and 70 studio rooms. Communal areas include a common room, a generous study area and an outside terrace with an unbeatable view of the iconic Wembley arch and across north London.
Local Brent MP, Dawn Butler, along with the Mayor of Brent, representatives from Unite Students, Middlesex University and RG, the main building contractor, attended the launch at which students and guests had the opportunity to try out their footballing prowess with professional football freestyler Dan Cutting, who wowed guests with his Guinness World Record skills.
Nick Hayes, Development Director, said:
“We are delighted to have agreed a partnership with Middlesex University and support them in enhancing their student experience. This is closely aligned to our core purpose of providing a ‘Home for Success’ for students living with us, and the crucial role environment plays in enabling students to achieve more during their university careers.
“We are extremely proud of our new Wembley development, providing a further 699 beds for Middlesex students, the £50m scheme is well located by high quality amenities and good transport links to central London.”
Olympic way is one of five new developments for Unite Students this year, joining Causeway View in Aberdeen, Gosford Gate in Coventry, Stapleton House in London and Greetham Street in Portsmouth.
