The pods

Undergraduate Engineers in their first year have the opportunity to live on-campus in our modular, en-suite pods – each containing a sleeping and study area, with plenty of storage.

The 4m x 8m pods are made from cross-laminated timber, a construction material that offers exceptional strength. This allows them to be stacked without the need for further supporting structures. External aluminium panels protect them from the elements, while green roofs integrate them into the surrounding landscape. Embodying the true Dyson philosophy, the accommodation is a first of its kind.
