Our housing and estates team have worked long and hard this summer to ensure that Orpheus continues to provide an excellent place to live and work. This not only means seeing huge improvements to the quality of accommodation for our students, but also to staff members' work spaces. It is important that staff have access to the right resources in order to provide a high quality and professional service to our students. Read on to find out what we have done in order to achieve this.

So far...

  • We have moved just over 100 staff members into better working spaces, each larger than hitherto, decorated, with new flooring, and in some cases new windows and office furniture. New lockable storage has been installed which ensures we continue to be compliant with recent data protection regulations.
  • We are in the process of turning around 11 flats for new tenants. This, in most cases, means decorating, installing new flooring and some new kitchen worktops.
  • We have redecorated our residential volunteer rooms which now have new flooring, ready for the incoming volunteers arriving in September.
  • We have removed the old recording studio, decorated, installed new flooring and are currently awaiting the new studio to be fitted this week.
  • We have fitters replacing the Manor House corridor flooring.

And there's more to come...

  • We hope to extend the car park before the start of term, remarking the bays to allow for more accessible parking.
  • We hope to refurbish the Room of Requirement during the summer break.
  • We will be creating a new space for students' relaxation and well being.

Stay tuned!
