Date posted: August 19, 2012

ArchitecturePLB has secured planning permission for new student residences for the University of Southampton. Mayflower Halls consists of three individual blocks containing a total of 1100 student bedrooms arranged within a mix of flat clusters, single studios and 1 bedroom suites. The £33m project carefully balances the City’s aspirations for a landmark building, which overlooks the Civic Centre, new Seacity Museum and historic listed park, with the need to deliver an affordable and durable building that satisfies the University’s management requirements.
