Kit yourself out with all the student essentials

The results are in and you’re off to university. Well done you! And now your university place has been confirmed, what about your student accommodation?

If you haven’t yet sorted a place to live for September, don’t panic; we still have rooms available in some cities across the UK. Check our locations and availability here.

For those of you who already have your rooms booked and are moving into one of our properties next month, we can’t wait to welcome you to Host. And with only a few weeks to go, it’s time to start writing those lists and deciding what you’re going to pack and bring with you. Exciting times!

While you’re sure to have gadgets and games galore ready to take with you – what about the student essentials? From tea towels and plastic food containers, to bathroom towels and bedsheets, as boring as they might sound, you’ll definitely need them.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
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.
