A list of services that University students wish they knew about before moving in to Uni.

Student Guides

A list of blog articles about guides of how-to-be-a-student and helpful tips for starting University. The types of scholarships available, how to find a new home, what is UCAS and lots more.

Airport pickup service

We have partnered with Mozio, a transportation-search engine company that will help you book your taxi or bus from the Airport to your dedicated Accommodation. One less thing to worry about.

Student Storage

When it is time to move out of your accommodation and don't have anywhere to put your stuff, you can book storage with Spaceways. They will collect all your items, safely store them whilst you are away and then re-deliver everything back to you when you need them. Best part, you get £10 off when you book through Student Essentials

UK Sim card

Being in the UK without a UK SIM card is akin to going for an exam without a pen. As part of our service, each package we send out includes a UK SIM card from giffgaff that you can activate at your convenience. giffgaff offers a range of SIM-only plans and mobile phone deals that are perfect for students.

Safety App

We believe everyone deserves to feel safer in their day to day life. Our app connects you with a Personal Safety Specialist so we’re there for you when you need us most. When you’re less afraid, you’re more alive.

Gadget & Personal Insurance

Gadget & Personal insurance provides cover for items including mobile phones, laptops, cameras, tablets and your belongings in the student accommodation, offered by Cover4Insurance.
