A Norwich university has revealed a new student flat complex taking shape in the city centre will be used for its students.
The University of East Anglia (UEA) says it has entered into an agreement with Alumno to provide 244 new rooms for students at the Pablo Fanque House, on the former Mecca Bingo Site in All Saints Green.
It will provide the accommodation from September 2018, initially for students entering second and final years of study. Students are invited to apply for one of the en suite rooms or studio flats from January.
