COVID-19 Assured

8 October 2020

Unite Students is a COVID-19 assured workplace

Unite Students is the first UK Student Accommodation provider to be issued a British Safety Council (BSC) assurance certificate. This means our policies, procedures and protocols relating to COVID-19 have been assessed by the BSC and meet the current UK government guidelines on best practice. We are committed to monitoring and reviewing these on a continual basis.

British Safety Council COVID-19 Assurance Certificate

We are also the only purpose-built student accommodation provider with a 5-star rating from the BSC, showing our dedication to keeping our students and people safe and secure.

The continued safety and security of our customers and employees is our primary focus. We know that this year will require us to do things differently in order to make sure we are providing a wrap-around package of services to support people in the ways they need us to.


We have compiled some of our responses to COVID-19 and information on how we are doing things this year, in a range of easy to understand factsheets:


Our student services welfare support: Keeping students safe and secure

Providing a Safe and Secure Shared Living Experience

Clean+: How we are helping control the spread of COVID-19

How we are playing an active role in our communities

How we make a positive impact on local residents and wider communities
