The university city of Nottingham is celebrating securing Purple Flag accreditation for an impressive seventh consecutive year.

Operated by the Association of Town and City Management, the accreditation of a Purple Flag (the scheme that recognises excellence in the management of UK town and city centres at night) indicates that Nottingham is a safe and vibrant place for a night out and therefore the ideal location for students to feel secure and at home during their time at university.

The highly sought-after accreditation is based upon a number of core themes including the overall wellbeing of the place, accessibility and public transport, crowd management, access to information, assortment of venues such as pubs, bars and late night spots and attractive public spaces. And with Nottingham proudly retaining its Purple Flag accolade for the seventh consecutive year, it’s hardly spurring that it is fast becoming the perfect student city, combining a fun and friendly atmosphere with exceptional higher education institutions.

Results from the latest census reveal that out of the total population of just under 319,000 in Nottingham, 37,000 are university students. With students comprising 11.6% of the population and growing, accommodation is in demand and the best is quick to sell-out.

Indeed, the demand for accommodation from students choosing Nottingham for their higher education is set to rise even further with the news that the University of Nottingham has been named the 2016 University of the Year for Graduate Employment according to The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide, moving the institution back into the top 20 on the national league table.

Answering this demand for residences is Fusion Students, provider of luxury student accommodation in the UK, alongside their management partner Collegiate AC. Their brand new Nova site is aptly named as it allows residents to shine brightly from the luxuriously star-studded premium accommodation.

Warren Rosenberg, co-founder of Fusion Students, comments,
