This broadcast marked the end of the National Student Housing Awards which have run for a decade. From 2022 they will be replaced by the new Global Student Living Awards offering global recognition and a more internationally recognised awards mark.

The Global Student Living Awards will also facilitate expansion of the awards internationally with the first new territories likely to include Spain, Portugal, Australia and Italy.

All awards are based 100% on student feedback gathered through the Global Student Living Index. Registration is now open for the Moving In wave of the Index which runs from 1st October through to the end of 2021.
