The location of the accommodation was carefully selected to allow easy access to universities, with good transport links and ensuring the students are at the heart of the action.

The Architect's vision for the project was to create a distinctive structure which would stand out from other competitors. The exterior facade features a simple appearance and design with clean lines and a contemporary use of colours and materials. This is complemented with the highly visible illumunited true logo, which is synomomuous to the true brand.

An important part of the design was to create a welcoming ground floor amenity space, which is clearly highlighted by the use of fun and quirky signage situated around the building. The build offers students an extensive range of amenity spaces, such as themed lounges for socialising or studying.

The development of true Salford has proved incredibly popular, and is home to many students from around the UK and further afield. The overwhelming response has been extremely positive, with guests absolutely loving their bedrooms and the fantastic range of communal areas available to them.
