We understand the role we play in helping make the most of your student
experience. At Downing Students we are proud of the focus our teams place
on your wellbeing and ensuring you feel safe, healthy and happy at all times.


We offer a wide range of fun, sociable events that are designed to build friendships and ensure our residents are part of our community.

Our events range from workshops and cooking classes to themed events such as cinema nights and pizza parties. We partner with big brands to run competitions and giveaways throughout the year as well as host master classes. We offer something for everyone with events hosted on site, as well as virtual events so students can remain in the comfort of their own rooms if they wish to do so.


Everything we do is designed around student living to ensure our students have the best experience living with us. Key to this is how closely we work with our student ambassadors.

All students who live with us have the opportunity to be a Downing Students Ambassador. It’s a paid for role that involves our students documenting their experiences across social media and supporting our residents. They are on hand to detail their student live, provide insight and tips to living and studying away from home.

We work closely with our students to ensure everything we do represents their values, needs and wants.
