Student Accommodation

Slattery understands the challenges and opportunities facing developers of student accommodation, not just in the design and construction of space that suits the living and learning needs of contemporary students, but also in the overall operations of your business.

Slattery has partnered with student accommodation developers alongside tertiary institutions for over four decades to help create and deliver the living amenities and education precincts that facilitate contemporary student life and positive education experiences. While aesthetic and functional design is vital, it is also essential that projects deliver value for money through quality construction and cost management.
