PBSA specialist, Future Generation by Southern Grove, is offering pet-friendly student accommodation from September 2021 in Guildford.

The move comes as universities welcome students back to campus for the new academic year following the pandemic, which took an unprecedented toll on many young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Speaking on the decision to go pet-friendly, Jack Smith of Future Generation comments: “We strive to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the accommodation we provide, and we know how much pets have helped young people through these past eighteen months of isolation, loneliness, and fear.”

“That’s why we’ve made all of our studios pet friendly – because we understand that living alone for the first time in a new place can take some adjustment. Having a friendly, furry face to come home to every day will hopefully make the transition easier for those who choose to bring along their companion.”
“Our studios provide ample space for most small pets – because, of course, we have to consider their welfare and wellbeing too.”
Research from the Mental Health Foundation shows teens' emotional wellness is under extreme pressing factor because of the pandemic; Smith adds: "It seemed well and good to truly take a gander at how we, as a convenience supplier, could help." 

Further examinations show the friendship that a pet offers is an extraordinary method to lessen nervousness, stress, and sadness, just as other psychological well-being encounters. 

Last year, proof assembled by the University of York and the University of Lincoln tracked down that 90% of 6,000 respondents said their pet assisted them with adapting sincerely to the lockdown.

Smith continues: “We’re passionate about providing our students with a luxury, unique living experience and genuinely care about what’s important to them. Future Generation accommodation is so much more than bricks and mortar; we create aspirational living spaces where those who live with us flourish and thrive.”
“I know that allowing our students to bring their pets along will help them better adjust to life away from home and the pressures of uni life.”

Guilden Village, Stoke Park in Guildford authoritatively opened on August 12, 2021, and has been depicted as the 'gem in the crown' of Britain's roaring PBSA area. 

The new understudy convenience building flaunts provisions, for example, Samsung keen TVs in every one of its 533 rooms, a cutting edge Morsia exercise center from eminent wellness vlogger. 

Matt Morsia (AKA MattDoesFitness), a film room, antibacterial cooling in each room, an armada of bikes for understudies to get, 1GBps Broadband, 24-hour security, smaller than expected golf, an open-air wellness trail, private lounge areas, concentrate on rooms and off-road stopping.
