Edge Hill University announced as finalist for Best Moving In Experience

January 19, 2023

Edge Hill University’s award-winning student accommodation has been announced as a finalist in the Global Student Living Awards in the Best Moving In Experience category.

The Global Student Living Awards for the UK and Ireland, and Europe are based exclusively on direct feedback from tens of thousands of students about their student accommodation experience. 

This year Global Student Living received over 30,000 responses across the UK and Ireland, and the results identified Edge Hill as one of the very best moving in experiences thanks to their welcoming and well organised staff and student helpers.

Director of Facilities Management Adrian McGillion said: “It’s always a real honour when we are shortlisted for an award that’s voted for by students, it’s a clear sign that we are getting our moving in experience right.  

“The entire Facilities Management team work really hard all summer, right up to when our students move in, often leaving their parents for the first time, to make the move into halls as seamless and easy as possible.  

“We do this to reassure students and their parents and guardians that we will look after them during their time at university. For the students to vote us one of the best moving in experiences in the country shows how successful the efforts of our team have been.” 

The Global Student Living Awards ceremony will take place at GSL live in October 2023 in London. 

Edge Hill offers a range of different halls to suit the needs of students and all first-year students are guaranteed a place in halls so they can have the very best experience. The University’s guide to living on campus can be found on the website.
