Liberty Court named winners of the ‘Contribution to the Student Experience Award 2016’ in Preston


UCLAN Students’ Union kicked off their Celebration Week yesterday with the 'Love Hate Rate Awards 2016' where Liberty Court was awarded the ‘Contribution to the Student Experience Award 2016’.

The Love Hate Rate project is an annual survey and awards process which seeks to measure the experiences of students living in student housing, as well as university and privately owned halls. The survey and awards allow UCLAN students to be truthful and passionate about their experiences of living in student accommodation. They recognise both providers and tenants for their contributions to the student experience and reward best practice.

Contribution to the Student Experience Award 2016

This award recognises the accommodation provider that has made a significant contribution to the student experience of their tenants by supporting or providing social and recreational opportunities which help create an active and enjoyable community.

Liberty Court won this award for opening up their office phones to allow students to contact student finance, consulting students on improving facilities and decorating the residence, as well as, organising activities and events to celebrate global holidays.

As part of Liberty Living’s new Student Experience Programme, Liberty Court aims to provide more than just a room for their students. They create a sense of community within the residence through events and activities, whilst also raising awareness of the support that is available to students from finance and budgeting to mental health.

On receipt of the award General Manager for Liberty Court, Jennifer Walls said:

“We are really happy with winning the 'Contribution to the Student Experience Award 2016'.  It shows that the work being put in to host events and help students is recognised by our residents, and that the programme Liberty Living has put in place is of real benefit to our communities on site.”

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to students who nominated Liberty Court for this award, as well as, a big congratulations to all those who were nominated, shortlisted and the winners of the UCLAN Students’ Union 'Love Hate Rate Awards 2016'.
