We know what you want!

14th July 2015

We work hard to make sure your accommodation is stylish, comfortable and the envy of your friends. We keep our eye on the ball so that we know what’s important when it comes to providing awesome accommodation.

The latest ‘What Students Seek’ survey from Glide Utilities has helped with this, highlighting the most popular items that modern students are demanding.

With this year’s results now in, the survey has revealed the top priority by far for students is fast internet: 83% of respondents said that this was something they specifically looked for when choosing their accommodation. And it’s something that we are happy to provide. From 333 Bath Street in Glasgow to Halsmere Studios in London, our properties have super-fast broadband and Wi-Fi throughout the building so you can stay connected 24/7.

Other things that are important to students are:

  • Inclusive bills – 74%
  • Double beds – 61%
  • Big, functional communal rooms – 59%
  • Top location – 55%
  • Good transport links – 31%

We prioritise all of these. We offer rent that’s inclusive of bills so that you can manage your finances without hassle and our double beds are deliciously comfy. All of our properties include fab communal spaces to work and play. At Saxon Court Apartments in Reading, for example, the building includes a private gym, on-site cinema, workrooms and a reading room, so whatever your mood you can find the perfect space to study or relax.

We opt for properties that are close to the city centre, like Brook Studios in Birmingham or Claremont House in Glasgow, so that you can enjoy easy access to shops, restaurants and loads more facilities. Of course our properties are also well located for access to university campuses, so you have everything you need right on your doorstep.

We work hard to make sure that our accommodation is perfectly suited to your needs and will continue to keep up to date with surveys and other forms of feedback to make sure that we get it spot on, every time. We would also welcome your views on what you love about living at Collegiate – or any ideas you have for making our fab student properties even better.
