Edge Hill University scoops Best Moving In Experience award

October 23, 2023

Edge Hill University has won Best Moving In Experience in the Global Student Living Awards, recognising its efforts to make moving in easy, fun and welcoming.

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 the best moving-in experience in the country thanks to its welcoming and well-organised staff and student helpers. 

Director of Facilities Management Adrian McGillion said: “It’s a huge achievement and honour to win an award that’s voted for by students, and a clear sign that we are getting our moving-in experience right.  

“The entire Facilities Management team, student services and staff from across the University work really hard all summer, right up to when our students move in, to make the move into halls as seamless and easy as possible.  

“With many students moving away for the first time, we make every effort to reassure them and their loved ones that we will look after them during their time at university, creating a home-from-home. This award shows how successful the efforts of our team have been.” 

The award follows on from Edge Hill’s largest-ever investment in accommodation, worth £23.6m, will see 232 ensuite rooms built on the former Back Halls site, supporting the increasing demand for campus-based living.

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 its website.
