Sustainable student experience
In 2003 our partnership with Lancaster was the most ambitious in the sector. UPP procured more than £180 million of funding to transfer and redevelop 4,347 rooms across the campus. Lancaster wanted something special for their students, and their challenging requirements led UPP to work with Professor Avi Friedman, at the School of Architecture, McGill University, to develop our award winning Eco-Residence model. This approach was later adopted by other operators and quickly became a template for sustainable student living.
