Glide, a market leader in shared student utility bills, today announces that it has partnered with StuRents, the leading services provider for the UK student accommodation sector, to provide stress-free student living across the UK.
StuRents is the UK’s largest student property platform, listing over 750,000 student bedspaces across the UK and Ireland whilst also powering contract signing and tenancy management for property managers in the student and residential sectors.
The partnership allows Glide to work side by side with StuRents to provide more attractive properties for students looking for their new homes. The first time living away from home for students can be a daunting experience and having to sort bills out can be stressful and time consuming. Through this unique collaboration, Glide is able to present more property options with bills included, taking away the stress of operating the home, allowing students to focus on their education and general living. With a bills inclusive package, students know exactly how much they will owe every month. With increased transparency, students won’t be worrying about how much their utilities bill is going to be — and no surprise bills to contend with.
Alex Back, Sales Director at Glide says: “Having operated with students for the last 15 years, we are excited to create a more inclusive package for our customers through the new partnership with StuRents. Students in particular have been hit hard over the last two years, and this partnership will work towards taking the stress and worry away from home management so they can truly have fun during what many say are the best years of their lives. We look forward to what this partnership will provide.”
Tom Walker, Co-founder of StuRents also commented: “We are excited to see what this partnership brings. Our goal has always been about providing students with the best quality tenant experience, from searching for a property through to end-of-tenancy check-out.. With Glide fully integrated into our contract signing platform, more students across the UK will have easy access to all-inclusive utilities packages, conveniently offered at the point they are signing their tenancy agreements.”
Glide is a market-leading infrastructure and utilities business, delivering hyperfast connectivity across the UK and Europe and operating in sectors such as student and built-to-rent accommodation, shared HMO living, and business parks.
