While most of the buildings we have acquired were operated “competently” by third-party providers there was scope to improve the management. We saw the opportunity to offer a more inspirational customer-led and focused approach to deliver fantastic student welfare and experience in a safe, secure environment and make it a genuine home away from home. An example is our Hollis Croft development in Sheffield where we provide students with theatres, a cinema room, study rooms, relaxation areas and recreation areas. We’re big on retention, both of our customers and our people. We offer brilliantly located properties in major University towns and cities, well-priced and equipped with all the amenities and services our customers need to thrive whilst at University. We’re big on our people too; providing welcoming work environments, interesting roles and a raft of opportunities. We’re putting major efforts into building a brand and an organisation that people want to work for and we’re excited about sharing some of our great work in the coming months.
