#MyHostCity Competition Launches

It’s the start of a new semester, and whether you’re a new or returning student, things may feel a bit different this year. But we don’t think that should alter your overall student and university experience.

We want you to settle into your new student accommodation, enjoy your stay with us and succeed with your studies; but remember there’s more to university than just studying…

Time to discover your new home

For many, you’ve arrived in a brand-new destination away from your hometown, city or even country! And we think this is something that needs to be embraced; it is your new home after all.

That’s why we want to encourage you to get out and have some fun exploring your local area. Check out the famous landmarks, discover hidden gems and admire the beautiful landscapes; basically, get to know the place you’ll be calling home for the next few years.

Capture the moments

And what do most tourists do when they visit somewhere new and discover something interesting or picturesque? They take a photo of course; because no exploration would be complete without capturing a few shots on your camera and sharing with your pals.

So, that’s exactly what we want you to do. When you’re roaming the city, be sure to capture the moments that inspire you the most. And if you do, you could be in with a chance of winning some top prizes…
