ASK4 and Global Student Living (GSL) have solidified their long-term strategic partnership in support of the PBSA sector in the UK and Europe. Over the next three years, both organizations will collaborate on various joint projects to contribute to an enhanced student living experience. 

GSL Live 2023: Celebrating Achievements 

In October, ASK4, in partnership with IoT experts Utopi, proudly sponsored GSL Live 2023. The conference featured valuable content tailored for PBSA investors and operators. The GSL Awards ceremony, held at the exclusive Landing FortyTwo in central London, celebrated outstanding achievements in the industry. ASK4 was delighted to note that most of the shortlisted organizations and the winners of Best Student Broadband UK and Ireland (Campus Living Villages) and Best Student Broadband Europe (Yugo), rely on ASK4 Internet services. These awards, based solely on feedback from students across the UK and Europe, underscore ASK4’s commitment to exceptional service quality. 

Congratulations were also in order for Fresh (UK and Ireland) and Nido (Europe), winners of Best Private Housing, as well as Nurtur Student, recipient of the Best Small Operator award (UK and Ireland). 

Skidaddle 2024: An Exciting Partnership Ahead 

Looking ahead to 2024, ASK4 and GSL have announced a long-term partnership for Skidaddle, an exclusive invitation-only networking event for senior influencers in the European PBSA sector. This collaboration ensures the event’s continued success, catering to the evolving needs of its c-suite attendees. ASK4 will also support GSL’s upcoming investor summit in Italy next spring, reinforcing their commitment to industry growth. 

ASK4’s Head of Marketing, Jess Glover, said: 

“Our partnership with GSL is extremely important to us. Their dedication to the sector, and to the students it serves, mirrors our own, which makes working together an inevitability. For an organisation like ASK4 operating in 12 countries, working with a truly pan-European partner who understands the nuances and unique challenges faced by each market is essential. You could also not find a nicer bunch of people to collaborate with and we look forward to sharing many future projects.” 

Thiago Alves, GSL’s Global Head of IR and Partnerships, added: 

“We are thrilled to announce our extended and strengthened partnership with ASK4. Over the next three years, we will continue to work hand in hand with ASK4 to enhance the student living experience in the UK and Europe. ASK4’s dedication to exceptional service quality, as evident through its recognition in the GSL Awards, reaffirms our shared commitment to excellence. We are excited about the upcoming Skidaddle event in 2024 and look forward to further collaboration with ASK4 in supporting the growth of the PBSA sector.”
