Vita York Student Accommodation

Vita York Student Accommodation

Lawrence Street,

York YO10 3FT

The contrast could not be greater from the former St Joseph’s convent providing home to the Order of Poor Clares, established at Lawrence Street in the 1870’s, to the newly refurbished and state of the art accommodation for mostly overseas students.

Spanning 15 two and three storey buildings, providing 501 rooms for 644 students, Vita boasts fabulous facilities and common areas together with a 20-person cinema, movie room, games room and gym.

In a nod to the buildings’ former life, key elements have been retained such as arched windows and pews in the sympathetic conversion. The modern use of vinyl flooring in a traditional wood effect provides functionality together with a bright, airy homely feel.
