New Water Lane Apartments – so much more than bricks and mortar

Every year, students are dispatched off to university by parents, full of hope and pride that their offspring will soon be sitting in lecture halls, filling their minds with knowledge.

Going to university is about so much more than academic knowledge though. Many students will be learning how to live away from home, cooking for themselves, keeping their home in a decent state and being fully responsible for their wellbeing.

It was this aspect of university life that inspired Eri Cuanalo, CEO of Collegiate, to create a company specializing in high spec student accommodation across the UK’s cities. Eri’s vision was far removed from the traditional student accommodation format; not simply bricks and mortar, his properties showcase just how superior contemporary student living can be.

The new Water Lane Apartments in Bristol, due to launch shortly (bookings are currently being taken) are the perfect example. Epitomising the new brand of sophisticated student living that Collegiate has spread throughout the UK, Water Lane Apartments are perfect for postgraduates especially with the high spec studio apartments offering the standard of living that a young professional expects, in a fantastic waterfront location.

Water Lane Apartments include 152 studios, a private gym, an on-site cinema, workrooms, a reading room, a private dinner party room, an exclusive residents club lounge area, a charming garden terrace and more! The building has 24-hour on-call support and an on-site concierge team to help students bridge the gap between the family home and independent living. Water Lane Apartments also offer high-speed broadband and Wi-Fi, enabling students to work and play online as much as they need.

Eri Cuanalo comments on Collegiate’s new standard of student accommodation, as embodied by the Water Lane Apartments,

“The modern student accommodation concept is one that has captured the imagination of everyone in recent years. Developers, investors, universities, parents and of course the students themselves are all delighted that student living is finally being brought into the 21st century.

“Collegiate’s focus is on creating best in class accommodation that is the envy of all those not housed in it. We don’t cut corners and we ensure that everything is perfect – from how comfortable the mattresses are to the perfect colour schemes for sophisticated student living. We are revolutionising student accommodation and we’re doing it right.”
