Stepney Yard is a student accommodation comprising 266 beds of cool, well-designed apartments set over three floors, many with views over the nearby Ouseburn Stadium and viaduct and some with outdoor terraces, the envy of any visiting student. Stepney Yard was completed in 2016. With a mix of duplex studio apartments and en suite flats, students are able to choose to live independently or share with friends.
