This year the National Student Housing Awards took a different approach.
Due to the pandemic of COVID-19 student accommodation has had to adapt. Students needed a new type of support and the team at Uninest Student Residences rose to the challenge.
Global Student Living approached all of our amazing residents to ask who in their residence support team has gone above and beyond during these trying times and why they deserve to win a Student Accommodation Hero Award. An incredible 16 nominations came in for our residence team members, something we are so proud of. Thank you for all the nominations!
And the winners are...
Frank Quirke and Danny Flaherty, Facility Assistants at Amnis House, one of our Cork residences, won the Gatekeeper award.
Making people feel welcome, safe and at ease is a real skill - the category of Gatekeeper is for those who reassure students and make them feel welcome and happy.
Check out what our resident had to say in their nomination:
"I can't choose between this duo I think they'll always come as one. These two men are all rounders you always feel safe knowing they are on for the night. Something to note about them is, no matter what time of the day or how long they've been up you can always go to them for a chat if you're not having a good day or even if a chat about anything. They're like having two big brothers in Amnis, always wanting the best for everyone. If anyone deserves recognition it is Danny and Frank. To sum them up "two gentle giants"
Congratulations to you both!
Our residents love living with us, and it's because of our amazing support teams and their dedication to ensuring you love every minute with Uninest Student Residences.
