Nearly four thousand student beds will be available to rent here in the city by September 2020.
Over half of those will be ready for use over the next 18 months.
Aaron Bailey is head of construction with GSA, who are building five student accommodation blocks across the city – including New Mill in Newmarket.
"All the fitted appliances are supplied and also the microwave, kettle, toaster".
491 When it’s finished, New Mill will have 400 rooms to rent in September, with rooms also coming on-stream at the same time at Kavanagh Court off Gardiner Street.
There’s also 101 rooms available at Broadstone Hall.
Aaron says all their apartments are a students home away from home.
"Once they're inside the door of their cluster apartment, it's absolutely their space."
The company aren’t stopping there, they’ve started work on another 570 rooms on Lower Grangegorman and are expected to begin work on a new building in the Blackpitts area of the city.
Aaron believes giving students their own space will help ease the ongoing housing crisis.
"We see that for every three student beds we provide, that's effectively freeing up a house in the private rental sector".
The company are spending a quarter of a billion Euro on their projects here in the city, which they hope will bring 4000 students beds into the system by 2020.
