NPAS Accredited Properties
NPAS accredited student accommodation properties meet industry-led minimum standards in terms of amenity, facility, security, customer service and management processes.
ENABLING STUDENTS TO MAKE AN INFORMED ACCOMMODATION CHOICE
NPAS is the stamp of quality for student accommodation. The accreditation means a property is being operated to a set of industry led minimum standards for the exclusive use of students with a focus on student safety and wellbeing.
"As a member of the SAA, our application for the NPAS was a key step towards strengthening our reputation within the student accommodation industry. Being part of this industry standard that provides clarity for national education stakeholders, students and agents made perfect sense."
Karen Netherwood, CEO of Varsity Apartments
It’s vitally important providers are guided by standards which can be trusted. St Ann’s is proud to demonstrate to our students and their families that the College follows the guidelines set out by the national industry body.
Denise Von Wald, St. Ann’s College Incorporated
