The National Student Housing Awards - Recognition of Quality

Hold UP … did you hear that The National Student Housing Awards were announced the other day?!

If you don’t know much about these awards, not to worry, we’re here to clue you up on all things student living!

The survey began back in 2007, and it’s run by Red Brick Research. Every year, students from across the UK and Ireland will vote on all aspects of their student accommodation experience.

The project began to provide institutions with the necessary information to support the students and their welfare in accommodations. It focuses on sooo many areas, such as costs, environmental responsibility, customer service and broadband levels.

They’re unique in comparison to other awards, as there are no nominations and no ‘expert’ judges. It’s solely the student’s voice which has control.

On scale, it takes the feedback from over 30,000 students dotted across the UK and Ireland, about both University owned and private accommodation.
