New accommodation designed to bring mental health benefits to Exeter students

Collegiate, the international student accommodation brand and one of Europe’s leading providers of Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA), will be opening the doors to its new development in Exeter, The Neighbourhood, for the new student year in September 2019.

The development has been designed specifically with the physical and mental welfare of students in mind in an effort to provide residents with a positive and rewarding student experience.

In 2016, over 15,000 first-year students in UK universities reported that they suffered due to mental health issues, compared to approximately just 3,000 reporting the issue in 2006. Further to this, 94% of higher education institutions have reported an increase in demand for their counselling services over recent years. A report from Shelter, the housing charity, also highlights how a positive and carefully designed living space can benefit mental and physical health.

Collegiate takes the welfare and wellbeing of students very seriously, which is why each of the rooms in The Neighbourhood Exeter has been specially designed to offer space, light, security and comfort. The communal spaces have been designed with a similar mentality in mind, offering students safe and comfortable spaces to study, play, relax and spend time with friends. On top of this, Collegiate also offer 24/7 support through the site team who is always available to respond to enquiries or offer specialist support to students whenever required.

The superior student living development in Exeter boasts a stylish contemporary décor and benefits from a prime central location to the city centre. The accommodation is available to rent on an all-inclusive basis and has a wealth of impressive start-of-the-art facilities, including an on-site cinema, games room and fitness suite.

Eri Cuanalo, CEO of Collegiate, comments: “We are delighted to be offering our exceptional university accommodation at The Neighbourhood in an unbeatable central location in Exeter. The development has been beautifully designed to an impeccable standard and offers a superior style of academic life, with spacious student apartments and incredible on-site features.

“The welfare of our students is of upmost importance to us, and so we are thrilled to be offering students in Exeter unparalleled support and superb facilities for an unbeatable university experience. We look forward to welcoming students to The Neighbourhood in the new academic year.”

Collegiate has managed over 50 student accommodation properties and has been involved in the design and build of over 20,000 units over the past eight years. The company is an internationally recognised student brand that has housed tens of thousands of students from around the world.
