Housing Hand and University Living partnership to empower students with guarantor and accommodation services

Housing Hand, the UK’s leading provider of guarantor services, continues to expand its partnership with University Living, enhancing student accommodation accessibility in the UK and Ireland. With over two years of collaboration, Housing Hand and University Living have facilitated seamless accommodation solutions for students, bolstering occupancy rates for accommodation providers.

Despite market challenges, Housing Hand has sustained a remarkable 50% year-on-year growth rate, a testament to its steadfast services and commitment to claims pay-outs. Notably, the company boasts a flawless record, with a 100% pay-out rate on all valid claims over the past 12 years.

The enduring partnership between Housing Hand and University Living has proved instrumental in streamlining student accommodation processes, particularly for those requiring UK or Irish guarantors. Through this collaboration, both organizations have supported purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA), letting agents, and houses in multiple occupation (HMO) landlords, facilitating faster occupancy and guaranteed rent payments.

Mayank Maheshwari, Co-Founder and COO at University Living, affirmed, “Housing Hand is our preferred provider for guarantees to students heading to the UK and Ireland. The company has been a trusted partner for over two years, and we continue to invest in our partnership as a key strategic priority.”

James Maguire, Head of Sales and Marketing at Housing Hand, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “As the most widely accepted UK guarantor company, we are delighted to deepen our partnership with University Living. Our affordable subscription service offers students peace of mind, with no additional costs for the 90% of students, who choose the subscription option.”

As the academic market for 2024/25 gains momentum, Housing Hand and University Living stand ready to meet the evolving accommodation needs of students.
