We believe it’s important to understand the source of data before you believe any of the insight. So we’ve written this article to give you peace of mind.

Our purpose is to help students make decisions so StudentCrowd sources and maintains the most comprehensive dataset on student accommodation in the UK and beyond.

In fact, StudentCrowd is the online platform where you will be able to find all purpose-built private and university owned accommodation, without exception. That’s all rooms and all building types with nothing missing, so that you are able to make the easiest and most accurate comparisons and choose the best accommodation for you. After all, university isn’t just about the degree, it's about your experience. And so much of that is knowing you live in a place that supports your well-being, your studying ability and your social life in equal measure. So whether you want a quiet space to yourself or as much community and activity as possible, you will find it all here.

Don’t know your ensuite apartment from your studio? Not sure whether to prioritise location or facilities?  Find all of the information you need right here. And, even better, you can also find authentic reviews from your future peers. Want to know what it’s like to actually live in a particular place? Read real, non-incentivised reviews from those that have been before you to understand what the best and the less-good bits are. You’ll soon find yourself getting a feel for where you will fit in best.

How do we know the reviews are real? We ensure all reviewers verify a university email address before posting the review.

Our data is collected and fully checked on a weekly cycle basis with pricing and availability kept bang up-to-date daily, meaning you can feel confident that what you are seeing is genuinely what’s available and what you can expect to pay for it. Always quality checked by a person, you can be assured that our information is, quite simply, the best representation of the accommodation available to you at any given time. And, as we don’t supply accommodation ourselves, our only interest is in providing you with fair, equal and useful information in order for you to make the right choices because we believe that where you live and how you live should add to your university experience, just as much as your degree should expand your mind.

We wish you the best of luck in your research and please do drop us a line if you have any questions on
