Our own charity

Upgrade Solidarity

To meet the needs of our most vulnerable tenants during the coronavirus crisis in 2020, we set up the private foundation Upgrade Solidarity. For this, we were able to count on the solidarity of our investors and co-Creators who supported it through voluntary contributions.

Students who were struggling financially could apply for a rental allowance on the basis of objective and measurable criteria. As a result, around 40 students were able to continue their studies without having to give up their student room.

A survey revealed that the mental wellbeing of some of our tenants was also suffering. As part of our social mission, we decided to enter into a partnership with an approved psychology practice through Upgrade Solidarity. This has made it easy for students with mental health issues to book 3 free sessions per academic year with a psychologist. What's more, Upgrade Solidarity pays for these sessions. Since it began, around 250 students have registered for the scheme. Donations via the following account are always welcome: BE44 3632 0046 0745.
