Elms BT1 BT2

Student Accommodation

Elms BT1 and Elms BT2

We know how important finding the right home is to your student experience. Our existing student housing at Elms BT9 has been applauded by our students for quality, cost and service (ISB Autumn 2015 survey).

Now, we’re transporting that safe, supportive and social environment to two new city centre locations.
