Having been involved in a lengthy selection process Links were successfully chosen to represent Campus Living in their first major new build student accommodation project in Luton.

Worldwide Student Accommodation providers CLV have a new and fresh concept of what the student experience should be. It was Links job to provide a product that was not only durable, practical and contemporary but one that would help enhance the ‘Student experience’.

Links were involved in the project from a very early stage forming part of the design team working alongside Kier and O’Connell East architects to achieve the desired look throughout the 578 bedrooms, 113 kitchens, 19 deluxe studio’s and multi-functional communal areas throughout the four individual buildings.

The results were fantastic with high gloss kitchens, modern open plan bedroom furniture, sharp contrasting fixtures and fitting and an expansive range of high quality seating and soft furnishing. This combined with an imposing reception area, demonstration kitchen, quiet room and active recreational area emphasised CLV’s ‘Live, Learn and Grow’ methodology.
