Alumno Developments Ltd is a private sector company which specialises in student accommodation development. Alumno works independently or in partnership with universities and colleges to deliver accommodation to match their specific needs.
The majority of universities have immediate accommodation requirements however not all have the resources to deliver new accommodation. The private sector plays a pivotal role in ensuring the delivery of much needed bed spaces for universities.
The main priority for both universities and their students when looking at accommodation is affordability, location and quality.
Peckham Road Buildings
Most recently Alumno completed the successful development at Peckham Road buildings in London.
Alumno in partnership with the University of the Arts London converted existing Grade II listed buildings adjacent to Camberwell College of Arts into student accommodation. The accommodation was completed in 2012 and now provides 155 bedspaces in a mixture of ensuite, non-ensuite, twin and studio rooms. The scheme is managed by the University.
235-241 Dumbarton Road
Alumno recived planning permission in 2012 for the redevelopment of a brownfield site on Dumbarton Road. The scheme will provide 174 student bedrooms, with a ground floor retail unit and a landscaped courtyard and amenity deck for students. The site is within a short walking distance of the University of Glasgow and will be completed for the start of the academic year in 2014.
