Introduction

Your student experience at university is influenced by many things: the subject you choose to study, the lecturers you are presented with, the other people on your course, and the social scene, to name a few. But what is more important than having a safe place to call your own?

Searching for the perfect accommodation is always stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. One great option for those who want a sociable space with a sense of community, is the purpose-built student accommodation offered by private providers like Collegiate.

With residences across the country, Collegiate is an award-winning purpose-based student accommodation provider. Whatever city you’re in, chances are, Collegiate is there for you.

The Neighbourhood is the latest experience in urban student living. The big, beautiful bedrooms; mega-fast broadband; all-day all-night concierge; breakfast to go; cinema; social and study spaces; special events; a fully loaded gym and free use of bikes, all go to ensuring residents have everything they need, all safely under one roof.

Health and well-being

If the past year has taught society anything, it’s that what is really important to life is not the latest gimmicks and high-tech facilities, but the well-being and support received through our community via the kindness of staff, the services they provide as well as the general atmosphere and sense of community – something Collegiate prides itself on.

University life is meant to be fun and enjoyable, so having a range of fun, exciting and inclusive social events that are free to enjoy on and off site is essential to help build a community. These social events (although mostly online for the last 12 months) are what build memorable moments for students and create a positive buzz around the building. Feeling part of a team or community enhances student confidence and inclusion, no matter the race, gender, or culture.

Extra support

Getting ready to start your new chapter as a postgraduate student takes a lot of work. Whether you’re a recent graduate or a mature student, university life as a postgrad student can feel quite overwhelming. That’s why Collegiate is collaborating with Endsleigh Insurance to provide a free, exclusive well-being support app for all its students! If students are struggling to adjust to university life, feeling stressed or anxious, they can access professional counsellors through the app. The app will also provide well-being advice, track your mood, and provide you with daily exercises that might help you to relax.

Take someone else’s word for it
