3 About The Student Accommodation Code  Developed in 2006 by UUK and GuildHE to encourage the highest possible standards of university-managed accommodation  An aspirational benchmark  Protects students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation, and outlines their responsibilities as tenants

4 Why The Code matters for universities  A legal obligation in line with the Housing Act 2004  The Code will promote the continuous improvement of accommodation standards through self-regulation  The Code can help to minimise organisational risk by ensuring housing teams are adhering to best practice

5 What The Code covers  A healthy safe environment  Timely repairs and maintenance  A clean, pleasant living environment  A formal, contractual relationship with the university or college landlord  Access to health and wellbeing services  A living environment free from anti-social behaviour

6 How The Code is enforced and regulated  Student feedback should be raised with the individual housing offices directly – if an issue cannot be resolved by the accommodation staff, students can raise the issue formally using the university’s internal complaints procedure  Each institution is independently audited every three years to ensure that its management arrangements for student accommodation are up to the high standards expected by The Code

7 How you can help  You play an important role in the management and day-to-day running of our halls  Download the Code to see the high standards we have committed to and how they relate to your job  Help spread the word to students and staff about our commitment to The Code and how this protects students rights to safe, good quality accommodation

8 What the sector says The Student Accommodation Code is a great example of the higher education sector coming together to improve the residential experience of students NUS Accommodation is such a big part of going to university and we fully endorse The Student Accommodation Code, which gives students somewhere to turn to when things aren’t going quite as well as they could be UCAS
