The Green is a purpose-built student ‘village’ which is ideally situated a stone’s throw away from the University of Bradford, and a 10-minute stroll from the city centre. This stunning development – one of the most sustainable of its kind – offers university students the best of both worlds by providing a community which is sat so close to the University of Bradford campus facilities and the hustle and bustle of everything Bradford has to offer.
The buildings within The Green are arranged as a small village, with rooms available either in apartments with six en-suite bedrooms, or 12-bedroom townhouses, ensuring there is something to meet the needs of everyone.
At the heart of the village is The Orchard, the central hub building, where you will find the Accommodation and Management office, as well as that all-important laundrette! The Orchard overlooks a biodiversity pond and gives students a lovely setting to socialise, surrounded by attractive landscaped gardens which boast built-in barbeque sets and seating.
The townhouses have patio doors at the back that lead onto grassed areas, so students have their own garden areas where they can plant their own vegetables. And with The Green making the most of solar power to heat water and use rain water for everyday means, its sustainability is striking.
Residents can enjoy the benefits of bike storage, 24-hour security and a unique social commitment which sees students organise events and trips, in order to help everyone settle in and make themselves at home.
Rent is included in the overall payment, which gives students piece of mind.
The Green could hardly be sat in a more convenient location for students studying at the University of Bradford, with campus facilities reachable within four minutes on foot. No meticulous journey planning required here!
The centre of Bradford is only 10 minutes’ walk away, too, and there is so much to experience. Hit the shops at the brand new The Broadway Centre, where you will find more than 70 stores and places to eat. With a wide variety of unique shops and high street brands, you will be spoilt for choice - and all under one roof.
Next stop, North Parade for cafes and bars. The tried and trusted Trip Advisor rates Al's Dime Bar as the top night out in the city, so drink to that whilst choosing from a range of craft beers and cocktails. If a quaint pub is on your agenda, The Sparrow is also a great shout.
When your tummy starts to rumble there will be no shortage of tasty eateries from which to choose. If you are feeling adventurous, why not make your way to Mylahore and embark on the ‘giant naan challenge’ (not bad for starters – get it?).
If you are in the mood for Italian dining there is a Zizzi's in the Broadway Centre. The city centre is also packed with fantastic eateries, from Thai to Bar & Grill and everything in between.
