We want you to get everything you want out of student life. This is and should be the most exciting part of your life to date. But we understand that sometimes student life is an emotional whirlwind.
That’s why we work hard behind the scenes to create a home that is a calm, stress-free, fun place to be, free from the pressures and worries of the outside world. Exactly how a home should feel.
Health & wellbeing
When leading a busy life, particularly one away from home and your usual surroundings, it’s important to look after yourself. We encourage you to maintain a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally, whilst at university.
Many of our accommodations boast communal spaces so you can study, relax and socialise with others, without being confined to your room. Some of our accommodations have on-site gyms fully equipped with state-of-the-art cardio machines and weights; we even hold classes such as yoga in some locations.
Initiatives such as Free Fruit Fridays and Breakfast mornings are also run regularly across our sites.
A safe & secure environment
No one likes hassle. So, we don’t make a drama of it. With a dedicated on-site management team, any issues or requests you have get sorted. Quickly.
With electronic door entry systems, intercoms and CCTV as standard at our accommodations, you can rest assured knowing that you’re living in a safe and secure environment.
And for that extra peace of mind, when our management teams leave for the day, security guards are on-site at some sites to ensure a 24/7 presence.
Join a community
Making your student experience brilliant is what we get out of bed for. Literally. When you make the decision to live with us, you’ll experience more than just somewhere to sleep. We want you to feel part of a community; somewhere to meet new people, try new things, and have your say.
That’s why throughout the year we organise various events and encourage you to join in. From welcome parties and art classes, to pizza nights and quiz nights, there’s something for everyone…
…but if there’s not, why not propose an event or activity? Suggestions welcome so speak to your on-site accommodation team.
We’re here to talk
Missing home? Looming deadlines? Difficulty getting on with flatmates? If you have any worries, or if you simply fancy a chat, we’re always on hand to offer good advice, or listen, when we’re needed. Our team is your team after all.
