Finalists announced: best providers of student services and accommodation 2019

Student-voted poll by National Student Housing Survey reveals top universities in 14 categories

The National Student Housing Survey (NSHA) and University Business are delighted to announce the finalists for the National Student Housing Awards 2019. The NSHA finalists represent some of the leading providers of student services and accommodation, as voted for by the students themselves.

The shortlists are drawn from the results of the National Student Housing Survey, the largest accommodation survey of current students in the country. The survey received over 40,000 student responses during the 2018/19 academic year, a significant new record for the survey which has run since 2008.

The survey runs in two waves to capture entry and exit information, once in the autumn (October-November) and once in spring (February-May).

Sarah Jones, NSHS project lead, said: “The finalists are delivering a truly excellent experience that students love. This was not decided by judges, but by students, and so the finalists should be particularly proud. We look forward to announcing the winners during our Digital Awards on 10 September 2019.”
