The Student Housing Company was launched in 2011 to manage purpose-built student accommodation in the UK and Australia. The Student Housing Company is plain-speaking, proactive and upfront, bringing a new energy and level of service to the student accommodation sector.

We pride ourselves on delivering high levels of service, security and attention to detail, in cities all over the UK and beyond from London to Edinburgh and beyond. We listen to our tenants, their families and the universities, striving to be clear in all our communications.

In September 2016 The Student Housing Company became part of the GSA (Global Student Accommodation) family, alongside their European and Asian brands Uninest Student Residences and Nexo Residencias.


About Us

We want to change the way accommodation is provided for students, raising people’s expectations about service, quality and communication. We want students to find renting a room from us incredibly easy and we want them to feel safe, comfortable and looked after. We want their parents to have peace of mind and we want the students to recommend us to other people.

We try to make everything we do as clear and upfront as possible. From our plain-speaking name to the refreshingly simple job titles on our team’s badges, we want students who rent from us to understand what they’re getting and who they’re talking to at all times.

Our goal is to have buildings close to lots of UK universities. We want these occupied 100% of the time. We can only do this by being excellent.
