Generous Support for Pathways to Property students

Pathways to Property receives generous support from UPP for future students.

We are delighted to announce that UPP, the UK's leading provider of campus infrastructure and residential management services has agreed to support ten Pathways to Property students by providing free accommodation in halls of residence whilst undertaking their studies at the University of Reading.

Accommodation costs make up a significant proportion of a student’s annual outgoings, circa £5,000 per annum. This support from UPP will help to reduce the financial burden to those from low income households and ensure students can focus on their studies without worrying about financial concerns.

All students who have successfully completed the Pathways to Property Summer School programme and who hold an offer to study the real estate and planning programme at Henley Business School, University of Reading will have the opportunity to apply for accommodation support, which will be awarded to those with the greatest need.

The University of Reading has a long-term partnership with UPP who provide accommodation management services for over 4,000 student bedrooms across Reading. UPP is already a supporter of RREF and Pathways to Property and provides accommodation free of charge for staff and students during the Summer School.

Volunteers Needed

As well as financial support, Pathways to Property relies on the time and expertise of its volunteers to help deliver the programme by giving talks in schools, hosting work experience students and supporting the delivery of the Summer School. In 2013-14 over 70 volunteers engaged with the programme helping RREF to reach over 1700 students and 400 teachers in outreach events as well as supporting 95 students during the Summer School. These achievements could not been have achieved without the support of those who gave their time.

As the initiative continues to expand, RREF are looking for further volunteers to become involved. We are particularly keen to hear from those across the UK and in the Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and Nottingham areas that can help widen the reach of the project to further schools and colleges.
