Vita Student officially opens the doors to its Cannon Park purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) scheme on Warwick Road in Coventry – in time for the new academic year. The scheme is catered for students at the University of Warwick and Coventry University.
Vita Student Cannon Park includes 766 beautifully designed ensuite studio apartments offering ‘all in’ student living from £250 per week which includes bills, a state-of-the-art resident’s gym, private dining rooms, cinema room, design-led hub space, study and co-work, complimentary breakfast, housekeeping, and a packed-out roster of events which are centred around wellbeing, community and maximising studies.
“We are delighted to officially open the doors of Vita Student Cannon Park and with it deliver a world class standard of living for students attending the University of Warwick. Interest has exceeded expectations with the building fully booked for the new academic year, and we’re excited to welcome these students in and support them through the most important time of their life, helping them to ‘begin big’.”Max Bielby, Chief Operating Officer, Vita Student
Walls within the Cannon Park building have been transformed into a visual spectacle point, allowing the building design to become a dynamic journey between spaces. The exterior of the development has been adorned by living walls which creates a habitat for birds and bees to flourish. Excelling for biodiversity, 4,700 m2 of habitat has been created.
The PBSA scheme also features an epic basketball court, which has been adorned with a full mural by world-renowned graffiti artist Hazard One – aka Harriet Wood. Harriet is recognised as one of the top five female graffiti artists in the UK and was commissioned for her use of rich colours and illumination. Her works have been found across the world – from a community project on the Arizona-Mexico border, the 79th floor of 3 World Trade Centre in New York, to a seven-storey mural in the heart of St. Pauls in Bristol.
