“We’ve long known how excited our residents are about living in our buildings, telling us they love how they are designed with their student experience in mind and enjoy living so near to where they study and all the amenities in Belfast, Sheffield and Dublin.
“But it’s what they’ve said about our team that really means so much to us. When I read comments like ‘I love this place, it has a great sense of togetherness, staff and students are always ready to help you do stuff, the accommodation is beautiful, the people are kind and considerate, the accommodation is fantastic for disabled students.’ in student feedback, I’m thrilled. We’ve got top-notch teams of people doing everything they can to help residents love where they live in Belfast, Sheffield and Dublin and enhance their student lifestyle, and it’s wonderful to hear their work is so appreciated.”Peter Brook, Operations Director, LIV Student
The Global Student Living Awards for the UK & Ireland and Europe are based on direct feedback from tens of thousands of students about their student accommodation experience, with no written nominations and no judges. The winners of all UK & Ireland and European awards will be announced on stage at GSL Live ’22: Net-zero Student Living in London on 20 October 2022.
“We regularly ask residents for feedback then we act based on what they’ve told us. For example, we’ve introduced regular events, work with other local and independent businesses, and come up with ways to help our residents and our local communities too.
“Many of our team members used to be students, so they know the difference it makes to live somewhere you love. They are determined to make the place students spend such an important part of their life somewhere that is more than a bed for a night. I’m so proud of them and over the moon to see their efforts so appreciated by our residents.”Claire Preston, Head of Operations (Ireland), LIV Student
