Britain's best university buildings: Student accommodation

To mark the start of the academic year, the AJ Buildings Library showcases images, drawings and data for the UK’s best university buildings. Part 2 of 4: Student accommodation

The AJ Buildings Library contains 85 exemplar academic buildings from British universities including images, drawings and data for 16 student residences.

There are three schemes at both the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford including accomodation blocks by Powell & Moya, Colin St John Wilson, James Stirling and Gillespie, Kidd and Coia, as well as residences from universities around the country.

Over the coming month we will be showcasing an academic building each day. Please let us know which projects deserve to be included through the AJ Buildings Library Facebook and Twitter.

The AJBL on Facebook

If you are an architect or student please let us know, through the AJBL facebook group, which buildings at your University deserve to be included in the Library. Each week for the next month a randomly drawn person who ‘likes’ the page will win a limited edition bone china AJ mug.
