AS MANY as 500 students will attend the newly acquired Uxbridge site of Bucks New University.
The university, which is expanding from its High Wycombe site, purchased the lease on the empty building in Oxford Road, Uxbridge, last week, and hope to move new nursing students in from next September.
Currently the university is looking at using private rental accommodation to house the students in Hillingdon borough.
100 members of staff will also be placed at the Uxbridge site, but Hillingdon Council played down worries that traffic problems in the area would rise as a result of the influx of students.
