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 has won the Best Specialist Accommodation Award and the International Accommodation Quality Kitemark in the National Student Housing Survey Awards seven times since 2013. The Awards are unique in that there are no nominations and no ‘expert’ judges. All the Awards are based on direct feedback gathered annually from more than 30,000 students across the UK. The Best Specialist Accommodation Award recognises the College’s excellent residential experience whilst the International Accommodation Quality Kitemark is only awarded to organisations achieving a satisfaction score of 90 percent or higher from international students.

Goodenough College was announced ‘Accommodation Provider of the Year’ at the global 2020 PIEoneer Awards. The PIEoneer Awards are the only 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 also 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.

In 2020, the College was also singled out for a ‘Highly Commended’ Award in the Student Accommodation Operator of the Year category in the prestigious RESI Awards organised by Property Week.

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.
