We are the largest provider of purpose built student accommodation in the UK by value.

iQ Student Accommodation has proudly been part of the education eco-system since 2008. We own and operate 66 properties across 27 UK cities and towns. We believe that the right home setting helps students to learn, flourish and make the most of their time at university. This is why we put wellbeing and the student experience at the heart of our business by promoting a sense of community throughout our sites, and by providing safe, well located, high quality accommodation. At iQ, our 28,000 students can confidently make the most of the opportunities available to them in the best possible home-from-home environment.

Following the successful acquisition of Pure Student Living in December 2017, we gained 11 sites in London, Edinburgh, York, Bath and Brighton. We are now the market leader Central London and Manchester, both areas of strategic growth for the company. We have a strong pipeline for growth in key markets in the UK, and a clear focus on driving the best student experience in the sector.

Our majority shareholders are Goldman Sachs and Wellcome Trust.
