Our awards.
All dedicated to you.

We’re proud to have won some awards. But hopefully they mean something to you too. Because the Global Student Living Index 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.
