Satisfying students needs
Collegiate's management philosophy is based on treating our students as our primary customers, and by serving their needs and doing all we can to enhance their university experience, achieving our clients objectives. This approach informs our asset management services which can extend to full student accommodation management services for particular types of schemes.
Student accommodation management is a highly complex and challenging task to perform well. The most important and challenging task is how to care for student tenants, though many do not realise this significance. The primary focus has to be on creating a great student experience and to achieve this requires a range of approaches, policies, procedures and support systems. Addionally, modern buildings use a great deal of complex plant, and combined with the occupation profile have highly intense health & safety requirements. The product needs to be marketed to students across the world, and apart from the core student customer there are numerous other key stakeholders - including universities and investors as part of many more.
Collegiate’s team has seven years of experience in managing a range of diverse student accommodation assets, in over 20 cities, and across over 30 student blocks, serving some 30,000 student tenants along the way. Added to this the team have a reputation for continuous development and improvement through which they have satisfied tenants, universities and investors.
