Elite Athlete Centre
The Elite Athlete Centre and Hotel has 44 twin ensuite bedrooms, including 20 cutting-edge altituderooms. These rooms allow athletes to adjust the climatic conditions, enabling them to sleep in environments that simulate altitudes of up to 5,000m (the equivalent of Everest base camp) while being able to maintain their regular low-altitude training programmes.
The Elite Athlete Centre and Hotel also has a specialist nutrition room to meet athletes’ complex dietary requirements.
Claudia Parsons Hall
Claudia Parsons Hall is our newest hall of residence a result of almost £50 million investment in our Student village. Our first hall named after a woman, Claudia was an English engineer, adventurer and graduate of the university. Built with the aim to promote an active campus, it has a bouldering wall, trampolines and other fitness equipment. To protect native species in the area, the hall is filled with plants and greenery promoting our biodiverse campus.
Located in the village, Claudia Parsons is in the heart of campus and close to lecture theatres, sporting facilities and the Students' Union.
Claudia Parsons is now officially open and we're looking forward to welcoming over 400 students to live here in September.
