Survey of 65,000 Students Recognises UK & Europe’s Best Student Accommodation

Press Release: July 20, 2022

The Finalists for the Global Student Living Awards across the UK & Ireland and European markets are announced today.

The Awards are based exclusively on direct feedback from over 65,000 students surveyed about their experience, making them uniquely credible and highly prized industry accolades.

Finalists are named across 14 categories in the UK & Ireland, and 12 categories in Europe. Winners will be announced on-stage in front of hundreds of student accommodation investors, developers, operators and universities at GSL Live ’22 on 20th October 2022.

“We’re delighted to be able to expand our Awards programme from the UK & Ireland into Europe for the first time this year. Despite increasing efforts to attract and retain the brightest international students, most European universities remain stubbornly ‘hands off’ about actually housing them. As a result, it falls largely to the private sector working with local government to fill the gaps. These Awards are therefore vital to recognise excellence and further encourage the investment needed to deliver the safe and vibrant communities that students deserve.”     - Tim Daplyn, Founder & CEO, Global Student Living.

 
The Categories and Finalists will be published at https://gsl.news/awards at the embargo date, and are listed below in full:
