AXO COVID-19 Free NHS Accommodation

Posted on 2nd April 2020

Our country and the National Health Service is approaching its toughest days. With the number of Coronavirus cases expected to double each day, the strain on NHS staff and key workers is also inevitably going to increase.

Over the past few weeks the United Kingdom has come together to help prevent the spread of the virus by self-isolating. This not only helps slow down the spread of the virus, but also helps manage the pressure put on the NHS.

Our people have supported the NHS in more than one way. On 26th March, 20:00 the nation stood on their doorsteps and clapped for the NHS.

On 30th March it was announced that 20,00 former NHS staff has returned to service making the NHS stronger. The ExCel centre has turned into a temporary hospital adding 4000 beds.

There has been tremendous support to help fight Coronavirus across the country. To show support and to make sure we’re doing our bit, AXO Student Living are offering all available bedrooms in any AXO property, across all four cities free of charge to NHS workers who need them for the purposes of carrying out their duty*. We have properties in London, Coventry, Suffolk & Sunderland.

We understand that public transport is not the safest option at the moment and can be costly. The high risk of virus transmission on public transport and the lack of transport due to station closures does not make it easy to get to and from work.

If one of our sites is easier for you to get to and from work, or your shift hours make the journey home impossible, please get in touch.

If you are an NHS staff or key worker or know someone who is who would be interested in free accommodation please email
