The Lawns, Harland Way, Cottingham - Update 28/3/19


The Lawns will be mothballed for 2020 and they will then make a decision on its future. The Lawns is a Grade II* listing building.

The caravan show will be there this year, which will be the last event before mothballing. Security will be living-in on-site to avoid a repeat of Thwaite Hall.

However, the Ferens Hall building will go on the open market mid April.

====================

To confirm, the University of Hull will not be offering The Lawns as an accommodation option for students in the 2019/20 academic year. 


Accommodation is a deciding factor for many when choosing where to study and we have experienced a shift in demand toward premium, high quality, on-campus accommodation. Only 20 people have applied for accommodation at The Lawns next year.



Statement from the University of Hull
Accommodation is a deciding factor for many when choosing where to study and we have experienced a shift in demand towards premium, high-quality, on-campus accommodation.

In response to rising student expectations, the University has been investing in its accommodation portfolio as part of an on-going commitment to provide an outstanding experience for students, alongside other projects such as the £16m investment in our sports facilities. This includes The Courtyard which opened in September 2016, providing accommodation for 562 students, the new Westfield Court complex for 1,450 students, and the ongoing refurbishment of rooms at Taylor Court. Our friendly, compact, single-site campus marks us out from many other universities – students can live on-campus, making it easier to attend lectures and tutorials, use the library, access student support services, play sport, grab lunch and have a night out.

With such a low number of students opting to live at The Lawns in the next academic year (2019/2020), in addition to being remote from campus, it would have a material effect on student experience and we are confident the alternative accommodation we can offer will provide a much better experience for them.

As a result of this, we have recently we will not be offering The Lawns halls of residence in Cottingham as an accommodation option for students in the 2019/20 academic year.

We will continue to deliver events and activities being hosted at The Lawns over the summer period.
Discussions are now underway as to alternative future options for this site.
