Goodenough College has again been a winner in the annual UK National Student Housing Survey. The College has retained the coveted International Accommodation Quality Mark for the third year running and won the award for Best Specialist Accommodation 2015.
The NSHS is the industry standard student accommodation survey in the UK and measures satisfaction levels of students' experience at their place of study and accommodation. The 2015 survey measured responses from 22,000 students from over 200 institutions within the UK.
The International Accommodation Quality Mark is awarded to organisations which achieve at least a 90% positive satisfaction rating from international students.
Goodenough College was also presented with the award for Best Specialist Accommodation, which is a new category for 2015 awarded to the highest rated specialist, unusual or selective student accommodation.
College Director Andrew Ritchie said:
"We are delighted to have been recognised in the 2015 National Student Housing Survey. Our aim is to provide an outstanding experience for all College Members. To retain the International Accommodation Quality Mark and to win the new Best Specialist Accommodation award is a testament to our staff and a recognition of the success of our recent refurbishment project. It is reassuring to know that our students are so positive about the Goodenough community".
