These awards recognise our positive learning environments and quality student experience, all voted for by our residents based on their experience.
These leading industry awards are determined by student feedback collected through the National Student Housing Survey, the largest and best-known survey of its kind in the UK.
We’re always grateful to all our residents who make us a part of their journey as a student. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback in the National Student Housing Survey.
In the survey students recognised aparto not only for our outstanding facilities and amenities, such as on-site gyms, common rooms and super-fast broadband, but for the positive learning environments and welcoming communities we work hard to create at each one of aparto’s locations.
Jasmine Dillon, Marketing & Experience Director at aparto, said: “The team at aparto and The Combworks are delighted to have been recognised by students in the National Student Housing Survey.
“Creating a community where students get to know each other and feel at home is fundamental to the student experience at aparto. Moving into accommodation is one of the most important moments in a student’s time at university, especially for first years, and we’re pleased to be nominated for the welcome we provide to new residents.
“We are particularly proud of how students have rated the positive learning environments their accommodation provides, such as at The Combworks. We are pleased to be leading on innovative design that promotes wellbeing, community and helps students to excel.”
