When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
The Host website & Mr B & Friends awarded an ‘Honorable Mention’.
Mr B & Friends have worked with us to develop a brand which captures what we’re all about: providing students with a welcoming, reassuring and hassle-free experience. And our new look and feel reflects this. It’s down to earth and approachable. Modern and smart. It shows we understand the challenges students face and work hard to solve them. So they’re free to focus on studying, meeting people and having fun.
And this week, as we celebrate our first month as Host – since launching on 1st October 2016, we couldn’t be more excited and proud to be notified that Mr B & Friends have won an award for their work. They’ve been awarded an ‘Honorable Mention’ from Awwwards for their efforts in the creation of the Host website. Awwwards are website awards. They recognise and promote the talent and effort of the best developers, designers and web agencies in the world!
Congratulations to Mr B & Friends for their hard work, and for bringing us Host!

It’s a simple campaign! For every percent we reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by we donate to one of our nominated charities.Show me all news
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
Starting university can be a daunting experience for anyone, especially if you’re an international student who has travelled across the world to study in the UK.
