Lancaster University voted top for halls of residence

Lancaster has been voted by students as having the best university halls of residence in the country

July 22, 2014

A nationwide survey of 19,000 students at more than 200 universities and colleges from around the UK also found Lancaster to have the best value for money for accommodation.

The National Student Housing Survey (NSHS) 2014, which was carried out by Red Brick Research, an independent market research company, measures satisfaction levels in all types of accommodation.

The best private halls of residence provider went to The Student Housing Company, while the University of Derby was awarded the best customer service award.

Other awards went to Victoria Hall Wolverhampton, which achieved best individual accommodation, and the Guy Chester Centre, a halls of residence in north London, which was voted as having the best moving-in experience.

The NSHS also licenses an International Accommodation Quality Mark, which recognises organisations achieving at least 90 per cent satisfaction among international students. Universities and private hall providers that achieved this included Northumbria University, Lancaster, the University of the West of England and the University of York.
