Accreditation and awards

Goodenough College is proud to have been the recipient of many awards for our high-quality accommodation and our commitment to championing diversity in education.

Here are some examples of our recent successes:

Goodenough College was announced “Accommodation Provider of the Year” at the global 2020 PIEoneer Awards, during a virtual ceremony broadcast from London on Friday 2 October. (In addition Goodenough Alumna Claire Seaborn reached the finals for the International Alumni of the Year award category.)

The PIEoneer Awards are the only global awards highlighting innovation and achievement across the international education industry. The College was shortlisted for the award against stiff competition, including International Student House of Washington, USA, and MyStay International in Australia, both of which were Highly Commended by the judging panel.

Goodenough College was part of the winning team in the Championing Diversity category at the PIEoneer Awards 2019, for its work on the International Houses Worldwide (IHWW) Scholarship programme. The programme was chosen for its success in enabling talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds to study in the UK, USA or Australia through Scholarships and Bursaries.

Goodenough won the Best Specialist Accommodation category in the National Student Housing Survey Awards for six consecutive years between 2013 and 2019 and again in 2021. This Award is presented to student accommodation which provides an excellent residential experience and is based on responses gathered annually from more than 40,000 UK students. The College has also achieved the International Accommodation Quality Kitemark for the last seven years which recognises a satisfaction score of 80 percent or higher from international students.

All Goodenough College accommodation complies with the National Code for Assured Accommodation. We are also members of London Affordable Student Accommodation Network (LASAN), UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), Association for Student Residential Accommodation (ASRA) and Nightline.
