Hello!

We are so happy to assist your students as they embark on a new and exciting journey. But we also know that they might have some questions related to their safety during your stay due to the Covid-19 situation. And that’s why here at Londonist we will do everything to make sure that your students feel secure during their stay.

Our number-one concern has been, and will continuously be, the well-being and safety of our students staying at our residences. Amid this unprecedented circumstance, we endeavour to do our best to ensure that the travel worries of our students are alleviated.

We are well aware that it is significant to understand how the Covid-19 has both physically and mentally affected all the students and as Londonist, we go beyond for them to provide the safest accommodation.

Whilst this pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges, we’ve been honoured to have been shortlisted for two important categories by RESI Awards 2021: Health & Wellbeing Initiative and Student Accommodation Operator. We have also been shortlisted for three categories by Student Accommodation as part of Property Week – the UK’s premier student housing event: Best Covid Response, Health & Wellbeing Initiative and Agency Team of the Year. Providing a “home” to the students is our top priority and with our dedicated team, we continue delivering an excellent service.

Our accommodation rules are up to date within the scope of the measures taken due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We make sure that the students feel secure and comfortable from the moment they step into London. Here you can watch the safety measures that are in place at our residences:

Your safety comes first with Londonist!
