Alumno is a London based company which specialises in student accommodation. They work independently or in partnership with universities and colleges to deliver accommodation for their students’ needs.

The majority of universities have a pressing need for new accommodation and do not have the resources to provide it. Alumno play a pivotal role by delivering much needed bed spaces for universities. This means students have great spaces to live and work in harmony with local communities. Their developments also help to reduce pressure on existing family housing and help educational institutions to grow.

The main priorities for universities and their students when considering accommodation are affordability, location and quality.

Alumno works across the UK and this is Alumno’s fourth project in Scotland, having completed a project in Edinburgh in 2010 and with another due for completion later this year in Glasgow. They have also recently received planning consent for a scheme in St Andrews.
