iQ Thrive

iQ Thrive

We’re committed to more than offering students their best year yet. We’re here to make an impact. To make a difference. For our iQers, for our residents, and for the wider community.

iQ Thrive is our promise to always do better. It's Give Back, Think Green and Feel Good.

Give Back

We’re always listening to our iQers. We know that giving back to their communities is important to them. Through Give Back, we help iQers to make a difference, whether engaging with local charities, getting behind our calendar of fundraising events or contributing through Payroll Giving.

We want you to be able to make a direct impact on students’ lives, so we’re always looking for new ways to make the most of the frontline presence we have. We’re open to new ideas and encourage each of our iQers to think outside the box to give back.

Feel Good

University is an exciting time, but it can also be daunting. Student wellbeing is our top priority. We call our approach to empowering students ‘Feel Good’. We focus on making sure students can easily adapt to university life and work with expert partners, like Shout and Student Minds, to signpost students to the right places for the help they need. We also work hard to create communities in our properties so that students are able to make the right connections and explore new opportunities – all key to their wellbeing.

Our onsite iQers play a key role in supporting residents. iQers can choose to get involved by becoming Mental Health First Aiders and Feel Good Ambassadors. Not only will you get the chance to listen to residents and iQers, but as an ambassador, you could play a key role in moulding how iQ responds to student wellbeing.

Think Green

Thinking Green is a way of life at iQ. We’re proud take the lead on sustainability in the sector, but we’re on a mission to make iQ an even greener place to live and work. It goes to the heart of how we operate our buildings. It begins with sourcing 100% renewable electricity, to technical improvements across our properties to reduce consumption, through to building better habits through initiatives like the Think Green Pledge – where residents and iQers are rewarded for their energy saving efforts. We also take part in the British Heart Foundation’s Pack for Good to donate residents’ unwanted items, diverting 108 tonnes from landfill in 2022.

Wellness in Your Everyday Life

What if we approached our mental health the way we do our physical health? Even if our mental health is sound, we can still learn to thrive.
