Get to know the team…


Life with Student Living by Sodexo is a rewarding and memorable experience. We’ve been working with students for over 20 years and although we started working with universities managing their own accommodation, fast forward to today and we now operate and manage purpose built student accommodation that’s privately owned too. We’re the people checking you in on move in day, fixing your lightbulb and making sure you have a fantastic university experience.


The key for us is that when you come to live in one of our properties, the experience you receive is just as memorable no matter where in the country or even the world you are!


How can we guarantee this? Easy… It’s because our teams really love what they do! It really shows too and we’re proud to say our resident satisfaction surveys currently sit at 97% of residents saying they’d be happy to recommend living with us to their friends!


So that’s us, in a nutshell, Student Living by Sodexo… creating meaningful student communities that thrive
