Choosing an accommodation partner

When choosing your accommodation partner, it is important that your partner understands the needs of your students when it comes to student experience and wellbeing. You don’t just need a builder, you need a long-term partner with a vested interest in the success of the residence, who can support your students and the university in the years to come. You also need to be confident that you’ll get the provision and the partnership that’s tailored to the needs of your university.

Working with you, not just for you

At Campus Living Villages, we specialise in working in partnership with universities. From the very beginning, we work to your university’s objectives – whether financial or operational. Our relationships with partner universities are driven by our on-campus village directors. Our training, ethos and approach facilitate a partnership in which we become a part of university life, working in harmony with the university’s goals. This means that you can be confident that you’re receiving the best student living provision for your university.

In it for the long haul

We are a long-term on-campus partner, with each partnership arrangement typically lasting for 40-50 years. We have never sold on a university partnership deal following transaction. As we’re in it for the long haul, we’re committed to designing, building and managing residences that support our students in achieving their goals. This requires a close partnership with the university, good communication with our residents, and a commitment to supporting students that goes above and beyond just providing a comfortable place to sleep.

Bespoke financial modelling

We offer a fully transparent approach to partnership with various funding models available to our partners. There’s also flexibility in this, including white label options. We offer off balance sheet solutions for university partners and, as we’re pension fund backed, we require returns as modelled with no pressure to increase returns over time. You don’t need to be concerned about spiralling rents: you tell us what rent structure you want, and we’ll work to that model. We can create innovative financial models tailored to the requirements of your university.

Working together for the future

Campus Living Villages offers a true, long-term partnership that is beneficial for your university and your students. With our integrated, consultative approach to partnership and our commitment to student experience and wellbeing, we can work with you to create safe, healthy and happy living spaces in which your students can thrive for years to come.
