Working together

Students are at the heart of everything we do. We are the number one choice for student homes because we genuinely care about how our students feel and how we can make their living experience better. We work closely with student-focused groups, including:
  • Student services teams in our partner institutions
  • Student unions
  • Student panels
  • Local community partners.
Our collective expertise is helping to create safe, secure environments for students, where they can study and socialise in comfort.

A worldwide welcome

Since 1991 Unite Students has developed a special expertise in homes for international students.

We carry out extensive research with universities and student-led groups to ensure that our international customers get the best possible student experience. This includes:
  • Arranging for a member of the onsite team to greet the student when they arrive at their new home, whatever time of day or night
  • Running regular settling in events at our properties
  • Providing all our staff with cultural awareness training.

Targeted support

We strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience and enjoy higher education, regardless of their background or circumstances.

That’s why we’ve already created 160 scholarships through the Unite Foundation, aimed at supporting students from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
We’re committed to continuing this good work. By partnering with universities we are able to identify young people who are most in need of our support, and help them realise their potential through our scholarships, which provide living expenses and a free room for the full period of these students’ studies.
