About Us

Alumno is an award-winning specialist student accommodation developer, delivering projects from inception through to operation. Since our beginnings in 2006, we have worked closely with universities, colleges and other key stakeholders.

Our vision is to create communities that appeal to a diverse range of students, while providing both sustainable and affordable accommodation.

We have provided homes and facilities for around 3,000 students in diverse locations and cities such as London, Birmingham, Norwich, Glasgow, Durham, St Andrews and Edinburgh.

No two developments schemes are the same – we love working with historic listings buildings bringing them back to life by including wherever possible amenities for us by the community so they can benefit the local community. At our Southwark Town Hall development in London we delivered a café, affordable artists studios and a new replacement community theatre.

We place great emphasis on fantastic architecture and placemaking with all our projects.

In 2017 we won the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) Best Residential award for our Powis Place and also the Brick Awards student development in Aberdeen.

We have also been nominated for Best Refurbishment at the RIBA London Awards for our Southwark Town Hall student development in London.

At the December 2017 Student Accommodation Awards, Alumno was Highly Commended in the Best Developer Category.
