Student accommodation heroes

It gives us great pleasure to announce that two of our employees have won awards in this year’s National Student Housing Awards run by the Global Student Living Index (GSL).

Both employees were recognised in the Student Accommodation Heroes category. The first winner was Assistant General Manager at our Athena Hall property in Ipswich, Reece Bromley, while Saeed Ahmed Bawazeer, one of our Night Porters at The Neighbourhood Cardiff, also won.

The Student Accommodation Heroes recognises individual staff who have been nominated by you, our students, for how they went above and beyond to make a difference. The annual nominations came through student feedback in the Global Student Living Index, which powers the National Student Housing Awards.

Six of our employees from five different properties in locations across the UK were nominated for the awards and two of those, Reece and Saeed, went onto win.

We want to say thank you for providing your feedback as it’s vital to enable us to carry on giving you the best experience we can!

“Reece is amazing at his job and goes above and beyond to help. He always goes out of his way to make sure everyone is happy, and he always manages to keep a smile on his face.”

“He leads everyone to meet each other, creates a sincere atmosphere and makes us feel at home. It is impossible not to smile when he is around”

We’re over the moon

Alan Blackmore, Chief Operating Officer for Collegiate AC, said, “We’re over the moon that two team members have won these awards thanks to the people who matter the most to us, our student tenants.

“Here at Collegiate we pride ourselves on giving the best service and support for our residents to help them get the most out of university life with our award-winning facilities, service and sense of community fostered through our events and communal spaces. To have our people recognised as providing an exceptional service is a great accolade.”
