Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By FIONNULA HAINEY

ONE of the lat­est ac­com­mo­da­tion blocks to open in the city of­fers stu­dents unique liv­ing ar­range­ments in a first for Coven­try Univer­sity.

Go­diva Place, on Lower Ford Street, is the first of the univer­sity’s stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion build­ings to of­fer brand new ‘twu­dios’ - rooms for close friends or cou­ples.

The stu­dent block has al­ready im­pressed its new res­i­dents - lead­ing some stu­dents to brand their new home ‘The Ho­tel.’

The Tel­graph took a look in­side Go­diva Place, which is now home to 772 univer­sity stu­dents.

The build­ing also of­fers stu­dents the choice of a sin­gle stu­dio room, com­plete with kitchen and study area, and a range of clus­ter flats that have bed­rooms for be­tween four and 12 stu­dents.

Chris Mor­gan, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of Fu­turelets, Coven­try Univer­sity’s ac­com­mo­da­tion group, took us on a tour of the build­ing.

She said: “We’re very proud of both Bishop Gate and Go­diva Place and I think it’s be­cause they are so dif­fer­ent.

“There’s a dif­fer­ent feel to this build­ing. Our stu­dents are ac­tu­ally call­ing it The Ho­tel as it’s got that kind of air to it.

“The twu­dios are a new con­cept for us. They are for stu­dents want­ing to live to­gether - like close friends or cou­ples.”

Stu­dents can only ap­ply for twu­dios as a pair. The close-prox­im­ity liv­ing ar­range­ment is de­signed for peo­ple who al­ready know they want to live to­gether.

Each twu­dio has two three-quar­ter
