National Student Housing Awards 2018
It’s that time of year again. The results are in and at Host, we are once again delighted and proud to be nominated as a finalist across three award categories in this year’s National Student Housing Awards!
We recognise the importance of the National Student Housing Awards and are pleased to be shortlisted for the following awards:
- Best Private Halls Provider
- Best Learning Environment (Shand House, Cardiff)
- The Best Individual Accommodation (Shand House, Cardiff and Victoria Hall King’s Cross, London)
We’d like to say a big thank you to our students for completing the questionnaire and sharing their feedback. And also to the staff at Host who work hard to create a welcoming, reassuring and stress-free experience for the students living with us – we couldn’t have done it without you!
The National Student Housing Survey (NSHS) is an annual survey of students in higher education across the UK. The survey, running since 2007, measures satisfaction levels in all types of accommodation. It allows participating institutions to measure their performance against national and regional benchmarks. The 2018 survey received over 30,000 responses from students from universities and colleges across the UK.
We wish all of the finalists the best of luck and we look forward to the announcement of the overall winners in September!
