Student Castle provides student accommodation that is designed and managed to deliver for student’s needs. Accommodation is modern, safe, within close proximity to the college or university, and importantly, it ensures students get the most out of their university experience.
Since 2010, Student Castle has opened schemes in Bristol, Bath, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Durham, London, Manchester, Newcastle, and York each one tailored to the city and its students. Due to complete this year, Oxford and Brighton.
It was the Brighton scheme that led to Student Castle to work with The Apartment Network. Due to the opening of the building being delayed, Student Castle required urgent accommodation in Brighton for students and as a result, booked 34 apartments.
Having originally placed the first group of students in a hotel, when it was realised their stay would be for several weeks, Student Castle wanted a higher quality accommodation alternative, with better facilities including living space and a kitchen.
“We were delighted to have the opportunity to help with this unique request. We were able to show our sense of urgency and commitment to quality of service when Student Castle needed us the most.”
Marcos Isaac, CEO
The Apartment Network
While hotel accommodation and purpose-built student accommodation could work, it was the Serviced Apartment solution provided by The Apartment Network that was by far the best option.
“We were very conscious that we were putting our students in a difficult position, as they had booked to move into Student Castle but we were then unable to open on time. It was very important to us to provide our students with a high-quality alternative. The Apartment Network delivered exactly what we needed.”
Jo Peters, Scheme Manager
The Apartment Network had the network and connections to source a suitable option for Student Castle. Serviced Apartments provide a self-contained, home from home environment – perfect for the students that needed a place to call home. Fully furnished, with fully equipped kitchens, there is space to live, study and relax.
With 34 apartments provided by Supercity Aparthotels through The Apartment Network, students were able to live under one roof, to live independently and, in current times, for students to stay safe.
“We were delighted to have been chosen by The Apartment Network and Student Castle to host their students at our newest property, Q Square in Brighton. Our suites have been designed to offer a modern living space with all the facilities required for a long stay, making it the perfect ‘home from home’ for guests. Over the 8 weeks, our operations team built great rapport with the student guests who very much enjoyed their unexpected stay with us!”
Ryan Bonner, Aparthotel Manager
Q Square by Supercity Aparthotels
Student Castle was delighted to have happy students, all comfortable staying for the extended period of up to eight weeks until Student Castle’s Brighton building was up and running.
“The staff were friendly and accommodating. The quality of the apartments was excellent, and the location was perfect for our students.
“We would definitely work with The Apartment Network again – the service was friendly and efficient. The quality of the apartments was excellent, and the local manager was helpful and friendly.”
Jo Peters, Scheme Manager
