Developers are targeting students who want the high life when living in halls, as plans for accommodation factor in rooftop bars, holographic receptionists and phone-charging surfaces.
Student accommodation search engine Mystudenthalls.com and Alexander Purcell Rodrigues for Ziggurat Students have revealed what the future of halls will look like. Features include swish "hotel-style" communal spaces and 'smart building' optimisation.
Residents will be able to charge their phone by leaving it on any surface as charging coils inside the walls become mainstream technology. Everything from laundry machines to shared bikes and booking study rooms will be controlled via mobile.
But the aim of the game will not simply be convenience. These future-digs are set to be eco-friendly with carbon-negative concrete and solar panels on the roof.
There's no word yet as to what exactly it will cost to live in one of these luxury pads, some of which have already been completed while others are under construction.
