The Student Housing Company was set up in June 2011 to create purpose-built, high quality student accommodation in the UK and Europe and it is set to produce two new sites in Edinburgh next year.

Bringing a new energy and level of service to the student accommodation sector, they are focused on delivering high levels of service, security and attention to detail.  As such the award winning student housing specialists seek regular feedback via student focus groups, to ensure they deliver the best student living accommodation possible as well as senior management staying in the accommodation wherever possible.

Bob Crompton, Chairman, explains: “Student feedback forms a key part of our design and development strategy enabling us to create rooms that optimise space, storage and practicalities to meet modern day student demands. Our new rooms for 2015 for example, will incorporate practical features such as electrical sockets located directly under mirrors (for hair dryers/straighteners) and sockets set into bed surrounds (for mobile phones), plus huge pinboards on multiple walls to allow the students to personalise their space.

“We are also working with interior design specialists, Links, to create bespoke designed common rooms for our 2015 residences. These will feature separate zones and adjustable lighting to create a more relaxed environment for students to spend their leisure time,” Crompton continued. 

Every residence offers rooms finished to a high standard with ¾ beds, deluxe en-suite shower rooms, and well thought-out study space. Studios have contemporary fitted kitchens in-room, while apartments come with large, modern lounge-diners. Each room also includes all utility bills, contents insurance and a 50Mb broadband connection at no extra charge.  Plus friendly onsite management team to help with maintenance, repairs, customer service and inclusive social events.

Safety and security is paramount – each residence is only accessible using a secure electronic key. There is 24-hour CCTV, while our constant staff presence ensures our student accommodation is effectively monitored.
