The Turing College development consists of the design, construction and operation of new student accommodation comprising of 801 student rooms and a 'Hub' building.

The project started in July 2013 and will be completed in 2 phases; 416 rooms and the Hub completed for occupancy in Sept 2014 and the remaining 385 rooms will be completed for Jan 2015.

The accommodation will comprise x5no 4-storey cluster residences and x4no 3- and 4-storey townhouses in sensitively landscaped surroundings.

There will also be a two storey Hub building with facilities such as a social/ study area, laundrette, dining, catering and management facilities.

The two storey hub is set into the natural falls of the site giving the impression of being a single storey building to maintain the views back to Canterbury. Other ancillary buildings house a gas governor, substation, water storage, bin and cycle stores.

The proposed development is sited on an area centrally located on the campus to the immediate west of Keynes College. This is currently used as a car park and informal sports and recreation field. The project includes accommodation for 495 undergraduate students with associated kitchen, laundry and management facilities. An extension of existing catering facilities at Dolche Vita is also proposed.

Please see the project page for further information.
