Host student accommodation property

What sets us apart

Providing opportunity

Delivering a high standard of living for students is one of our priorities, but we also offer huge opportunities for the organisations and investors we work with too.

Our expertise and experience in the sector gives us the knowledge to identify opportunities and the agility to act upon them. As a market-leading and award-winning operation across the UK and Europe, we can:

  • Provide superior access to market opportunity, manage risk and maximise returns
  • Offer a successful track record working in joint ventures, well-proven and workable documentation, and appropriate and acceptable fee, incentive and profit-sharing arrangements

Going even further

We operate under the highest standards of Health & Safety from making our first step onto a site or into a building, right through to the accommodation being fully operational. We invest in staff training and, if maintenance work is necessary, ensure this is carried out promptly and efficiently.

We care about what we do and the people we work with and for. We’re responsive to issues that may arise and we’re constantly striving to do more. That’s because it matters – to those who live in our properties, to you as an investor and to us as operators.

Our goals and values.

What makes Host tick

  • We strive to be the UK’s leading integrated operator and developer of quality student accommodation. We continue to evolve and lead the market.
  • We aim to grow our operational portfolio and build upon our operational platforms, both with existing investors and by establishing new clients.
  • We provide a full service, right from the identification of a site to its ongoing management once students have moved in.
  • We are highly professional, passionate, dedicated and results orientated.
  • We value high standards and our ISO accreditations (9001, 14001, 18001) underline our commitment to quality, sustainability and Health & Safety.
  • An Investor in People since 2014, we’re proud to put people – both residents and employees – first. We are responsible scheme operators and are proud to be accredited by ANUK.

Our awards.
All dedicated to you.

We’re proud to have won some awards. But hopefully they mean something to you too. Because the National Student Housing Survey only recognises accommodation based on real student experiences. So the people voting are the ones who live with us. Which means you can pick your Host student home with confidence.
