Parents Information

Your son or daughter is growing up and no doubt they have chosen their university and now they are trying to convince you that Unilife student accommodation is where they should be. As their family you will want to be sure that they are in a safe place – we hope this information is helpful and gives you confidence in how committed we are to our residents.

It’s a big decision…

We understand that when your son or daughter leaves home to study at university it is normally their first time living away from home. This can be an anxious time for parents. We are committed to making that transition as simple and stress free as possible. We are delighted to offer little extras too such as cleaning services and airport transfers. We want your son or daughter to enjoy living with us and also for you to have complete peace of mind and know they are safe and secure with a committed team at hand to help them if anything is needed.

If you have any further questions after looking through our website and frequently asked questions, then please feel free contact our team on 0845 5195 100, or email

Parent’s testimonial
“I have felt very reassured as a parent knowing that Vaughn was in a clean, secure environment. He tells me that he always got a very quick response from Luke with any query. I cannot recommend Unilife highly enough.”

What others say about us

  • I have found that the room is so comfortable with all the necessary equipment and easy to settle down for students.  Also, the security is good which is important for young students.  As a parent, I would like to recommend Unilife not only to my daughter but also her friends for the next year.
    Tomoko Doyama (Parent)
  • Overall very impressed with quality of accommodation and level of service.  Billing is simple as it includes all the services; electricity, rates, gas, water, council tax and so on. The students have all they need in their own space, so have somewhere to study without being disturbed. Social events if they want to be involved. Comes at a price above the basic halls or renting, but nicely packaged and happy with our choice.
    David Brent (Parent)
  • Thank you Luke, Jasmine is so happy at Unilife, you’ve made the whole process from Bermuda so simple and hassle free.
    Margaret Smith (Parent)
  • Just wanted to say how impressed I was when I dropped Vaughn off. We were met and given a comprehensive tour of the studio and the site and explained how things worked. The studio was gleaming and I feel so reassured that he has made the right choice for this upcoming year. One doesn’t always receive a service akin to ‘what it says on the tin’ but from first contact with you, to moving in, Unilife certainly does deliver a first class package.
    Ronnie Goodsall (Parent)
  • I chose Unilife because I was a first year student who missed out on student accommodation from my university. I'm really happy at Unilife and met some great first years too.
    Louise Brent
  • This is Eric and I have to say goodbye to you as I am not going to study as a postgraduate in Portsmouth next term. I would like to say thank you all as you have been very helpful this year. Every time something has been broken you have responded in the fastest way. Thank you so much.
    Cheuk Fan
  • I would like to express my gratitude to you for being such a nice house manager, Luke. Thanks for sorting out any issues I experienced. Once again, thank you very much!
    Kevin Tan
  • Best student accommodation there is. Perfect location, everything is around you. Someone is always at the end of a phone, always there and willing to do whatever they can to make us feel comfortable.
