The building, which is set within an extremely tight city centre site, comprises 244 ensuite rooms based around a series of communal areas featuring kitchens, dining and lounge areas, eight of which are fully accessible for wheelchair use. Additional features include ground floor common room areas with reception and three lifts.
As part of the build, historic tram tracks dating back to the 1800s were uncovered. The 45 metre section, which carried horse-powered trams, was removed by Clegg Construction and have now been reinstated.
The accommodation neighbours the University of Derby's Law School, which is situated in the One Friar Gate Square building, also built by Clegg Construction.
