Green Templeton officially opened its first major upgrade of student accommodation in recent years on Wednesday 17 November.

Twelve flats at the college Rewley Abbey Court site near the Said Business School were completely gutted and refitted between July and October. The stairwells were fully enclosed and uPVC double glazing installed. The project incorporated both major building works and fully furnishing and equipping flats. Importantly, it also made significant upgrades to the sustainability credentials, as well as to technology and security.

Being one stairwell of four, the strategy is to complete all of the flats at Rewley Abbey Court over a number of years. This upgrade not only provides the accommodation our students of the future expect, but also makes it easier to keep fully occupied with less ongoing maintenance. Green Templeton is grateful to the College Contributions Fund for its support of this project.

The refurbished accommodation was officially opened in November at reception in the new stairwell where members of the Building Committee and the contractors joined new residents.
