We work in long-term, trusted partnerships with universities to elevate the student experience.
A trusted partner to Higher Education
Accommodation is ranked as one of the most important factors influencing student wellbeing.
We work with universities to provide their students with a Home for Success – a place where they can grow, belong, and thrive.
Working with us
Unite Students partners with 60 universities across England, Scotland and Wales, offering support, insight and value.
Supporting your students
Much more than a room – we offer a Home for Success: building communities where students can belong, feel safe and secure, and grow.
Unite Students has a long and established track record of accommodation provision for a range of university partners. Using our sector expertise, we work with you to develop a bespoke solution for your residence strategy.

We regularly share our sector-leading insight at higher education conferences and events. Find out where we’ll be presenting next.
Student welfare support
We were the first in the sector to offer a student welfare service. Our in-house emergency contact centre is available 24/7 and students can find additional support via our partnership with Nightline. Almost half of the students who have used our welfare services say they would have left university without this support.
The pandemic has been a uniquely challenging time for our business, but we took a lead in the sector as the first student accommodation provider to take decisive action on rent rebates. We supported students financially at a total cost of circa £100 million because we understood how important this was for their health, safety and wellbeing.
Our services are developed using in-depth research into the requirements of today’s students. We have invested in digital platforms, including our student website and the MyUnite app, so we can respond quickly to issues related to routine aspects of our services. This helps our staff focus most of their time on areas that matter most to students.
