The best reasons to live with Host

So you’re going to university or college? Awesome. You’re probably still deciding what you’re going to study and whether you’re going to become a doctor, artist or even an astronaut. But another pretty big decision you’ll need to make is picking somewhere to live. With so many options out there, how do you decide? Here are some pretty good reasons to say ‘that’s the place’ with Host…

Location, location, location

At Host, we’re crazy about location. That’s why our student halls are located close to the city centre and to university or college campuses. You won’t have far to go for lectures, and those big nights out will only be a short walk or taxi ride away. And for those rainy days – or those not so active days, many of our halls our situated close to public transport links to make your journey even easier.

Hassle-free, all-inclusive student living

No-one likes hassle. Especially as a student. You have lectures to attend, assignments to complete and big nights to get ready for. With all-inclusive student living at Host, you can focus on what’s important. You don’t need to worry about managing different bills for water, electric and internet – we do it for you.

Peace of mind

We know security is top of the list when finding your next home. And your safety is our priority. We have security and caretaker cover and assisted CCTV at our sites, so if there’s an issue we’re on hand to help. And if you do have any issues or requests, we get them sorted. Quickly. Our team is your team after all.

Host is where the heart is

Think of us like a cool older aunty or uncle. Friendly, supportive and on your level. You’ll like being with us. We want you to get everything you want out of student life. But sometimes student life is an emotional whirlwind. That’s why we’re always on hand to offer good advice, or listen, when we’re needed. We work hard behind the scenes to create a home for you.

So, what are you waiting for? Make yourself at home with Host. For more information about living with us at any of our halls, contact us today!
