About iQ

iQ Student Accommodation was established in 2007 and merged in January 2016 with Prodigy Living to become the 2nd biggest provider of student accommodation in the UK. We base the business upon the principle of delivering a ‘best-in-class’ service to residents through continual improvement, sustained investment and relentless focus on customer service.

Service Provider

The portfolio has grown to a capacity of 23,500 beds at 55 student accommodation schemes in 26 locations and over 600 members of staff, with our most recent development due to open in September 2017 in Glasgow. All of our properties are fully owned and are managed with the clear intent to provide students with a truly exceptional experience.
We have established a solid reputation for delivering high quality student accommodation and continually strive to provide leading property management, ensuring that students and universities regard iQ as the accommodation provider of choice.
