Major Rebrand for Uninest Student Accommodation

Four former Uninest student developments to be operated by The Student Housing Company

Posted by Hannah Vickers | February 24, 2017 | Facilities management

Following a major rebrand, the four former UK Uninest student developments will now be operated by The Student Housing Company. The move comes after Uninest’s parent company, GSA, acquired The Student Housing Company in the UK’s largest student accommodation deal of 2016. 

Following the acquisition, GSA has decided to streamline its offering by managing all UK sites under the same operating company.

Uninest sites in London (Therese House), Lincoln (Park Court), Newcastle (Knoll Court) and Nottingham (Goldsmith Court) have all been rebranded, bringing the sites in line with The Student Housing Company’s “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. 

The Student Housing Company’s reputation has been continually growing, so it made sense to bring our UK Uninest developments, which total 1,198 beds, under their banner - Tim Mitchell, GSA’s CEO for EMEA

Tim Mitchell, GSA’s CEO for EMEA, said: “The Student Housing Company’s reputation has been continually growing, so it made sense to bring our UK Uninest developments, which total 1,198 beds, under their banner. Furthermore, GSA will now replicate the brand’s operating standards and Five Customer Promises across all its markets globally during 2017.”

Sarah Linton-Walls, sales and marketing director at The Student Housing Company, said: “We’re always striving to push the boundaries of what the sector offers, and we’re delighted to be adding Therese House, Goldsmith Court, Knoll Court and Park Court to The Student Housing Company’s existing portfolio of nine properties across the UK. Alongside service, providing high quality buildings in prime locations is fundamental for us, so these sites are an ideal fit.

“We’ve been working hard to ensure a smooth transition and minimise any impact on residents. Staff at the residence will be staying in place, The Student Housing Company will be honouring all Uninest terms and conditions signed by residents, and there will also be no change to rents.”

The London, Lincoln, Newcastle and Nottingham-based residences, all of which are located within close proximity to universities, public transport, restaurants, cafes, bars and supermarkets, offer students an array of beautifully finished rooms. To keep students’ financial worries to a minimum, all facilities and bills including water, gas, electricity, heating, broadband and maintenance are also covered in the monthly rent.
