Award-winning student accommodation provider, Student Roost, and innovative hybrid letting agency, Accommodation.co.uk, have teamed up to create a revolutionary booking process for university students.
An exclusive partnership between the two providers will transform the way students can enquire, view and book a room at one of over 50 Student Roost properties across the UK. The partnership will also help Accommodation.co.uk to continue its growth across the UK.
Accommodation.co.uk, one of the fastest-growing letting agencies and trusted by tenants and landlords throughout the UK, will help to market Student Roost properties on housing market search sites such as Zoopla and Rightmove.
Typically, students moving into their first or second year of study will scour property websites for shared housing owned by local landlords or university-owned housing, often finding a large property that has higher bills, long waiting times on essential house maintenance and a lack of communication between landlords and tenants.
Student Roost properties, which cater for all university students, are houses, but better – they offer all the best parts of living in student accommodation with extra benefits, from private en-suite bathrooms in every room, social spaces such as cinema rooms, gyms and hosting kitchens, to social events and a 24/7 team on site. Properties include the brand-new Brewers’ Court in Edinburgh and York House in Nottingham, which are both due to open this year.
With support from Accommodation.co.uk, students can choose to book a single studio if they prefer to live alone or with a partner, a room in a shared flat if they want to make new friends, or a group of friends can book a full house and experience the university life together in the city they are studying in.
Student Roost provides over 8,000 student houses across over 50 properties in 20 different university cities across the UK. In total, 20,000 residents make a Student Roost house their home during their studies.
Jason Andrews, Director of Operations at Student Roost, said:
“We’re excited about this partnership with Accommodation.co.uk, which will allow more students to find out about purpose-built student accommodation and make it their first choice when it comes to finding somewhere to live while at university.
“Our priority is providing a house, but better, which students will remember as part of their university life for years to come. With this partnership, many more students will find their home away from home at Student Roost.”
Howard Russell, Lettings Director at Accommodation.co.uk, said: We are delighted to be partnering with such a forward-thinking and fast-growing student accommodation brand. Combining their fantastic quality student homes with our industry-leading technology, we are focused on making Student Roost the first choice whilst studying at university.
As a company, we have experienced outstanding growth over the past 12 months, despite the challenges presented by COVID, and this partnership will accelerate our expansion across the UK.
