University Services

Student Accommodation Partner for Universities and Colleges 

We advise universities and colleges worldwide on student accommodation strategy. We also advise on nominations agreements with private student housing providers and can work with student recruitment departments to improve overall occupancy through sales & marketing campaigns. 


We help universities create and manage winning student accommodation strategies. 

Student Accommodation now forms an integral part of the student experience alongside academia. Universities and colleges are therefore under pressure to deliver quality student housing options alongside educational opportunities. At Student Housing Consultancy, we recognise these pressures and help our university clients navigate the world of student accommodation with ease.

Nominations Agreements

A nominations agreement is a way for universities to provide extra contracted beds for their students beyond their existing university-owned properties. The agreement between a private student accommodation provider and the university, guarantees a certain number of beds that the university is financially liable for and must therefore fill with students. 

We help universities source the most appropriate nominations partners and assist with contract negotiations. Elements of this service can include: 

  • Nominations tender process

  • Nominations strategy and planning
  • Systems integration

  • Contract management

  • End of year review

  • Operator and University liaison
