Unite Students, the UK’s largest provider of student accommodation, has refurbished a 220-bed property in London to improve resident experience and help realise its aim of becoming net zero carbon.

Station Court, near Seven Sisters station, in Tottenham, has had all kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and its reception updated, while improving its entrance and amenity areas to include larger study and social space.

The £5.7million project, which took six months, introduces new white goods to the kitchens such as fridges and microwaves. It also includes the installation of solar panels to generate renewable electricity on site, plus smart controls on hot water and heating systems. These measures help Unite Students in its aim to become net zero carbon across its operations by 2030.

The work was part of a £24million refurbishment programme, starting last year, across three of its UK properties, which also included Oak Brook Park in Birmingham and The Bridge House in Edinburgh. Both of these projects finished in time for the start of the 2023/24 academic year.

Unite Students is targeting £50-£75million of refurbishment projects annually with work in London, Liverpool, and Glasgow set to be complete this year.
