We've updated our getting ready for uni blog, and we've split our tips into different parts so that we can bring you all the details you will need over the next few months as you prepare for September and move in day.
We’ve achieved British Safety Council COVID-19 Assurance Accreditation
The health and safety of our students and staff has always been our top priority; and in recent months, this has never been truer.
We understand that COVID-19 has been, and still is, a worrying and uncertain time for everyone. That’s why we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to protect our students and staff and minimise the risk of coronavirus at our accommodation.
We’ve been working hard to adapt our accommodation and our service to ensure that our students are kept safe; but can still have the best possible living experience whilst at university or college.
In recent months we’ve introduced a number of measures and additions to Host’s procedures to ensure an even higher standard of cleanliness and safety at our accommodation. Changes include social distancing measures, protective screens at receptions, hand sanitising stations and enhanced cleaning protocols.
Following an in-depth review by the British Safety Council (BSC) we have achieved the BSC COVID-19 Assurance Accreditation. This means our organisational policies, procedures and arrangements in response to the control of COVID-19 within our accommodations meet the current UK government guidelines.
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 changes, our arrangements and policies are continually monitored and adapted to ensure their effectiveness.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
