About Us

Downing Students are a family business and our core values reflect this. We care about our customers and understand that choosing a new home is a big step. The decisions you make about where you’ll live during your time at university need to be right for you and we’ll help you make the right choice.

It is our years of experience that sets us apart from our competitors and all of our buildings are designed with students in mind.


Our Facilities

The facilities and attention to detail we offer are what make Downing Students’ accommodation stand out from the crowd. We pride ourselves on creating a sense of community where students can live, study and socialise in comfort.  And from a parents’ point of view, we know just how important are factors such as value for money, excellent service and safety.


Our high quality buildings use the latest technology and our friendly and knowledgeable management teams are there to help from the day you move in right through to the day you leave.
