Depot Point, Yugo’s five-storey converted warehouse, is marketed to university students

A space where students used to leave rubbish in the bin store could be transformed into a gym to help them keep fit.

The application is the latest in a range of amenities designed to appeal to students moving into shared accommodation in the capital.

The five-storey block in Britannia Street offers a range of shared flats and studios for students in a converted nineteenth-century warehouse and is close to Kings Cross and St Pancras stations.

It is run by Yugo, which has a portfolio of student homes across Europe, the USA, and the Middle East.

The student flats are close to a gallery which shows works by Damien Hirst.

Depot Point is marketed to students with places at University College London, UAL, City Birkbeck and SOAS.

The new plans include a small gym and are part of a trend to offer students more facilities in the competitive student market as the cost of living in London soars.

The bin store would move to the end of the cycle store, which has space for 126 bikes.

They want to transform an amenity room into a new laundry too.

The applicant would make a new common room where the old laundry was previously and a separate study room for students.
