Since our beginnings in 2006, we have continually worked with universities, colleges and other key stakeholders to provide homes for around 2,000 students in cities such as London, Birmingham and Bristol, despite the challenging economic times and complex legislative environment. We work in partnership with several large funding institutions including Lothbury, La Salle, RBS and AVIVA.

Thorough planning and consultation

The secret to our continued evolution and growth has been thorough planning and consultation. Working as closely as possible with everyone involved in a project, right from the start, we forge strong partnerships that ensure a deep-rooted understanding of each proposal’s specific requirements.

“Since planning was granted residents have worked closely with Alumno and built a good relationship.”

Mark Bell, Chair Sheraton Park Residents Association, Durham

This lays the foundations to address and meet every project’s objective, from future demand to operational needs, resulting in the delivery of high-specification facilities on time and within budget.

Creative and innovative solutions

Our work has gained us respect within our field – from the educational establishments themselves to industry experts and property professionals, who recognise our ability to find creative and innovative solutions to challenging projects.

“QMUL are working with Alumno (on the Stratford High Street scheme) which we consider will provide excellent, well located accommodation for out students.”

Nick Davie, Assistant Director Estates and Facilities, Queen Mary University of London

We strive to create accommodation that is both affordable and of a high quality, as well as ensuring that everything we do is sustainable. We have also further extended our strategy and approach to include mixed-use developments, where we are providing studio spaces for graduates and artists that help with the next steps after university or college.


Prior to our education work, we delivered numerous projects within specialist areas of healthcare, reflecting the broad experience of the Alumno team, which spans more than 20 years in both the public and private sectors.

We constantly focus on the future and continue to work with our partners to create the ultimate in desirable and stimulating living environments.

Alumno Polska
