The UK’s top student accommodation provider to open its first Australian residence in 2018

The Student Housing Company

Award-winning student accommodation provider, The Student Housing Company, has announced exciting international expansion plans, with its first Australian development to open in Melbourne in July 2018. Bringing the brand’s trademark quality and customer service to the Australian market comes after parent company, GSA, acquired The Student Housing Company in the UK’s largest student accommodation deal of 2016.

The Student Housing Company

University Square will be the first of its kind in Melbourne and will be home to 346 students next year, offering a wide selection of beautifully furnished apartments. Located right on the doorstep of the University of Melbourne and just a 7-minute walk from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), the development will be ideally located for students at two of the city’s largest universities. Residents will also be just minutes from the city centre and surrounding areas of North Melbourne, Carlton and Parkville, where they can enjoy the ample cafes, bars and events the bustling city of Melbourne has to offer.

Sarah Linton-Walls, sales and marketing director at The Student Housing Company, said: “We are so excited to be launching in Australia! The Student Housing Company’s continual growth reflects the outstanding offering we provide to students in the UK, and the trust our customers have in us. Hopefully this is just the beginning for our international expansion.”

With 6 years of experience in the student housing sector, The Student Housing Company’s fresh approach to student accommodation ensures peace of mind for both residents and parents alike. Their prime locations, all-inclusive rents and exceptional customer service are represented by their “Five Customer Promises”, which provide students with the confidence to expect the highest quality accommodation and service. These promises – which include measures such as hiring staff based on their integrity, friendliness and willingness to go that bit further, being upfront with all accommodation costs, and continually taking on student feedback to help better their offering – have ensured that The Student Housing Company has won Best Private Halls Operator for three years in a row in the UK.

About The Student Housing Company
Set up in 2011 to develop purpose-built, high quality student accommodation, The Student Housing Company has brought a new energy and level of service to the student accommodation sector. The brand is currently home to over 4,000 students in nine UK cities, across 13 purpose-built properties.

The Student Housing Company won the “Best Customer Service” Award 2016 at the National Student Housing Survey Awards, and was named “Best Private Halls Provider” in 2014, 2015 and 2016*. In addition to successes at these awards, the company’s Ablett House residence in Liverpool won the “Highly Commended” prize in the “Best Halls of Residence” category of the 2016 Rate Your Landlord Awards.

Focused on delivering high levels of service, security and attention to detail, The Student Housing Company continually updates accommodation and services in response to customer feedback, with the aim of delivering the best student living experience possible.

In September 2016, The Student Accommodation Company became part of the GSA family. GSA is a global student accommodation leader, headquartered in Dubai. GSA is owner operator of student accommodation in Australia, China, Dubai, Germany, Ireland, Japan, and the UK.
