At aparto we are more than just a place to stay, we’re a community! All of our residents and staff are part of the family, not forgetting our furry pet pals who are there to lend a paw….


Buddy – The Stoneworks, Brighton 



Yo! I’m buddy the puppy, one of the newest members to the Stoneworks. It’s great here, I get loads of attention and everyone says I’m ‘cute’ which must be a good thing as they give me loads of treats.


Likes: New people, treats, cuddles


Dislikes: nothing


Usually found hanging out with residents in reception



Gizmo and Bear – Beckett House



Hi, Gizmo here! I’m a designated staff member, I’ve even got an aparto jacket. I love working here as I get to help with all the events, from mixing drinks to putting up bunting (although I always need help with this as I can’t reach that far).


Likes: helping out the site staff, food enthusiast


Dislikes: When Bear gets more attention


Usually found lending a paw at our events 


Bear - Beckett House




Hi. I am Bear and a very chilled member of the team. When Gizmo is away I come to play with all the students (and take Gizmo’s toys shhhh). My days consists of naps and treats, which is a pretty sweet lifestyle.


Likes: long naps


Dislikes: loud noises 


Usually found have a good sleep by reception  



Sebastian and Ash – Binary Hub



Hiya, I’m Sebastian. I get super spoilt at Binary with all the students wanting to hang out with me (even when I’m trying to sleep *sigh*). My new best pal is Ash, the kitten, who is always trying to surprise me but he’s never that subtle.


Likes: shiny things and attention


Dislikes: Not getting enough attention


Usually found hanging out with Ash, the kitten   




My name’s Ash because I was found on a golf course in Ashbourne. I’m so glad I got taken to my new home. Now I have tons of fun making loads of new friends and another cat to hang out with!


Likes: his home in Binary Hub, and the new friends he’s made


Dislikes:  Golf


Usually found hanging out with Sebastian the cat    



Mark and Jack – Cam Foundry



I’m Mark and live in the Cam Foundry with my brother Jack. Apparently, I’m always getting up to mischief, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with crashing flat parties and trying my paw at DJing.


Likes: music, parties, exploring 


Dislikes: Not getting enough attention


Usually found outside causing chaos   




Hey there. I’m Jack and I’m living my best life at the Cam Foundry. I prefer the quiet life and am happy just chilling at reception.


Likes: lazy days, the indoors


Dislikes: crowds and loud music 


Usually found in a quiet corner by reception
