Recognised as the Best of the Best by Students

Redbrick have released the results from their 2019 National Student Housing Survey and we are proud to announce that on the first time of entering, Collegiate has been recognised as finalists in three of the national award categories.

The survey, which includes feedback from more than 30,000 students from across the UK, provides the backbone of the National Student Housing Awards and gives an unparalleled insight into student accommodation in the UK.

The National Student Housing Awards, run in conjunction with University Business Magazine, are unique as they don’t take written nominations and there are no ‘expert’ judges.  All awards are based 100% on direct feedback from the tens of thousands of home and international students across the UK.

Collegiate managed to achieve a very solid response rate from 623 students staying within our accommodation across the country.  The overall picture was very positive with the majority of responding students citing the accommodation as “very good” and well above the UK averages for both private and university halls.

Collegiate AC has been recognised in three awards including; the Best Private Halls Provider, the Best Learning Environment for its Roman House accommodation in Derby as well as the headline award for 2019, The Best for Student Wellbeing.  The announcements for each award will be made live during a special online broadcast in September.

We are particularly proud to have been named as a finalist in the Best Student Wellbeing category as the welfare and wellbeing of students is at the core of our business.  Each of our developments have been carefully designed to provide high quality living spaces that support the physical and mental wellbeing of students.

As part of its work in providing living spaces that have student wellness at their heart, the team at Collegiate is delighted to be recognised for the work they have put into designing, building and managing unique and superior student accommodation.  The work that the team has done is reflected in the fact that 80% of students rate their accommodation positively and nearly half (47%) as ‘very good’. 

These results contributed towards a very positive Net Promoter Score which is a commonly used benchmark that organisations use to track their overall performance from recipient responses when asked to score organisations out of 10 on a range of questions.  We were proud to lead the field with a net sore of +17, compared to an average of +6 for private halls and -4 for university halls.

The recognition of Roman House in Derby is testament to the high standards the team achieves in terms of providing the best possible living space and experience and is just one of the reasons why Collegiate has also been named as a finalist for the UK’s overall Best Private Halls Provider.
