LSBU Accommodation is 'best in London,' according to Whatuni Student Rankings
10 April 2015
London South Bank University (LSBU) was nominated for a prestigious Whatuni Student Choice Award, following its high score in the accommodation category of the 2015 Whatuni Student Rankings.
The rankings, based on over 20,000 online reviews submitted by students across the UK, offer prospective students an unbiased, student-led alternative to traditional university league tables. LSBU's accommodation score was the fifth highest of all UK universities, and higher than any other university in London.
The Whatuni Student Choice Award nomination marks LSBU's continued investment in student experience through its ambitious development programme for campus buildings and student facilities. LSBU's four residences in total contain 1,400 single-occupancy and self-catered rooms, all ideally placed for easy access to the Southwark Campus. The university's commitment to best practice in managing student accommodation is confirmed by LSBU's membership of the Universities UK Code of Practice for University Managed Student Accommodation, which covers all LSBU residences.
LSBU's Chief Operating Officer Ian Mehrtens commented: "I am delighted that LSBU's student accommodation has been recognised as leading the field in London. Our position in the national top five of leading universities for accommodation reveals high levels of satisfaction among students and reflects the university's commitment to meeting our students' needs by creating comfortable, sustainable and state-of-the-art facilities."
