Student Cribs provide high quality student housing, in both shared houses and apartments, in 23 cities across the UK. We are the largest single provider of 2nd and 3rd year student accommodation in the UK, leading the way in offering exceptional student accommodation. Each academic year thousands of Student Cribs beds are let, offering students stylish contemporary properties with the most modern facilities, in the best locations in university cities and towns. With Student Cribs, students get the most of their accommodation, allowing them to make the most of their time at university.
Student Cribs was founded by Charlie Vaughan-Lee in 2003, after he became frustrated at local letting agents refusing to let quality accommodation to him and his friends due to being university students. During his first semester at Bristol, Charlie rounded up investors, purchased and renovated 3 properties which he then let to some very happy friends; Student Cribs was born. Now supported by a young and passionate team headquartered in London’s bustling St James, Charlie’s vision is channelled through student accommodation in 23 British university cities and towns, allowing domestic and international students to enjoy a better standard of living, whilst also experiencing the peace of mind that they are living somewhere secure. Student Cribs have been reinventing university living since the early noughties, and have ambitious plans to continue changing the face of UK student accommodation for the better.
Student Cribs can be let in Newcastle, Nottingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Exeter, Manchester, Bristol, Salford, York, London, Oxford, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Keele, Stoke-on-Trent, Huddersfield, Swansea, Cirencester, Liverpool, Loughborough, Durham, Edinburgh and Coventry.
