A little more about The Student Housing Company…


The Student Housing Company Limited was established in 2011. It has since positioned itself as a leading provider of exceptional student accommodation throughout the United Kingdom. The company delivers high quality services while attending to every detail.

As an important part of the larger Global Student Accommodation Group, the company contributes to the provision of student housing across Europe and Asia. In the UK, their approach involves placing student accommodation buildings as close to universities as possible. For example in cities like London and Edinburgh.

Distinguishing themselves within the competitive student housing market, they are a company that really stand out. They provide effortless, secure and comfortable renting experiences. This makes them a premier choice for those seeking student accommodation in the UK. Region Security Guarding are proud to have worked with them.


What was the security risk?


Student accommodation and its surrounding areas have unfortunately been susceptible to criminal activities, including theft, vandalism, and anti-social behaviour. Given that students often become targets for criminals and thieves, ensuring robust security measures is a matter of importance.

In 2017, Bentley House (Birmingham), approached us with an inquiry regarding reception and building security services. Their number one objective was to safeguard the well-being of their student residents. They also wanted to fortify the premises against unlawful access by unknown individuals.

When we got this request, we began developing a tailored security solution. One specifically designed to address the unique requirements of the student housing site in Birmingham. At Region Security Guarding, we pride ourselves on employing professional Security Industry Authority (SIA) trained guards. All of our guards possess the expertise necessary to deliver exceptional and efficient security services.

How did we help them?

During the night time shifts, our guard carries out several important roles. Their primary focus revolves around maintaining safety within the premises. To achieve this objective, the guard oversees the entry and exit of individuals. To achieve this, the guard ensures everyone properly signs in and out and that they also possess a valid reason for accessing the building.

Additionally, they promptly address any issues that may arise. Some of these include deterring unwanted individuals loitering in the entrance area or managing disruptive behaviour throughout the entire facility.

Throughout the day shift, the guard conducts regular patrols across all floors of the building. They use this as an opportunity to thoroughly inspect and confirm their security. These patrols occur hourly and serve as a vital aspect of their responsibilities.

By undertaking these frequent rounds, the guard ensures the safety and protection of the reception area. Their vigilance also extends to the entirety of the premises during its busiest hours. As a result, fostering an environment that is safe and secure for all occupants.

Additionally, roles that our guard carries out in the day includes accepting parcels and other deliveries. This requires them to have solid knowledge of our business systems, which enables them to log and manage these items. As the number of individuals accessing the building rises throughout the day, our guards remain alert and responsive.

As well as the main tasks that our guard carries out around the clock, they are well-read in the procedures they must follow. Especially the fire alarm procedure. This aspect is important, as it makes sure that our guards possess the knowledge to swiftly and accurately respond to emergencies. Effectively safeguarding lives and minimising potential risks.

"The security has been fantastic overall. Guard is an absolute superstar and please pass on our thanks. I have been very impressed and we would like to use Region if we have any holidays to cover in the future."


"We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two-month period and was punctual, reliable, and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price."

After using an unreliable costly company for several years it is a pleasure to do business with Region Security. Thank you Namrita and team!”
