We work in long-term, trusted partnerships with universities to enhance the student experience.
A trusted partner to universities
Accommodation is ranked as one of the most important factors influencing student wellbeing.
We work with universities to provide their students with a Home for Success – a place where they can grow, belong, and thrive.
“The residential experience is a core part of the student experience. Student accommodation is much more important in the UK than in most other countries.”
– Nick Hillman, Director of the Higher Education Policy Institute
As the academic year fast approaches, the Higher Education sector is preparing for thousands of prospective students preparing to head to university for the first time. But who are 2023’s applicants, and what does the class of 2023 need at university?
With a view to starting to answer to these questions, we'll soon be sharing our inaugural Applicant Index report.
Our free Leapskills workshops include a programme of resources that we’ve carefully designed to address the most common challenges students face when they move away from home.
Through the interactive workshops, young people can discover what it is like living with new people, making new friends, balancing work with fun and managing their money.
Support to Stay
Student mental health support is a shared challenge across the Higher Education sector, and a holistic, collaborative approach is fundamental to addressing it.
Our student support framework, ‘Support to Stay’, aims to join up our student support services with those of our university partners.
Creating meaningful change
Living Black at University Conference
The Unite Students Commission on Living Black at University - the first research report to look into the experiences of Black students in UK student accommodation - hosted the Living Black at University Conference in 2023.
The free one-day event welcomed universities, accommodation providers, and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) leads in the sector, providing an opportunity for guests in the sector to discuss and better understand the findings and recommendations from the Unite Students Living Black at University report, and take ownership of actions that support the creation of a more equitable environment where Black students can thrive.
