Chester Students Award Student Roost for First-Rate Accommodation
Leading student accommodation provider, Student Roost, has bagged top prize in Chester in the first ever Housing Merit of Excellence (HoME) Awards.
Having received two nominations for both The Towpath and Tramways, Student Roost has been awarded ‘Purpose-Built Student Accommodation of the Year’ by the Chester Students’ Union.
After being nominated by students and judged by union staff, The Towpath in Wharf View has been recognised for excellence in housing standards and services. It was praised for hosting regular events, maintaining a high level of cleanliness, and providing first-rate support from staff.
In a recent customer survey, a resident at The Towpath said “I enjoy living at the Towpath because of its location and it is modern, has beautiful rooms and spacious communal areas.”
Another student said their favourite thing about living there is the “friendly and safe atmosphere.”
Home to 335 students, The Towpath is located next to the canal, offering wonderful views, and is a five-minute walk from Chester city centre. The Towpath offers both ensuite and studio accommodation to students, as well as a communal lounge, gym and study room.
Traycie Kennedy, Operations Manager at The Towpath, said: “We’re really proud that The Towpath has been recognised as PBSA of the Year, especially as these awards are voted for by our own residents.
“We work hard to provide sense of community at each of our properties, and this award demonstrates the living experience that students love at The Towpath.”
