Princess Road East, Leicester


Princess Road East is a new high-end student accommodation development of 110 studios plus communal facilities.

The four-storey block is a five-minute walk from the University of Leicester and within easy reach of De Montfort University.

Each of the 110 self-contained studio bedrooms has en-suite bathrooms. There is also a communal area, cinema room and gym.

The construction features pre-engineered modular bathroom pods which were delivered to the site fully fitted and ready to be installed, significantly reducing construction times.

Princess Road East also incorporates energy-saving technology, including heat recovery ventilation systems and air source heat pumps for hot water heating.

High quality bricks and contemporary glazing emphasised by a dark grey aluminium window surround sit in harmony with the adjoining Grade II listed building fronting De Montfort Square.
