About The Student Hotel Group

The Student Hotel concept started with one simple observation: that students deserve better. Today, that vision has become reality and grown to encompass all guests with a ‘student spirit’. From design-savvy travelers to next-gen entrepreneurs, TSH now welcomes thousands of people annually to its ever-expanding portfolio of urban campus-style hotels across Europe. Purpose-built or housed in historic reimagined buildings, TSH’s industry-leading concept provides blended spaces to learn, stay, work and play for a night, a week, a month or a year. TSH guests, businesses and local communities embrace its positive impact-driven programming and inclusive culture. All TSH properties offer a mixed-use campus with accommodation, bars, restaurants, gyms, retail shops, meeting and event spaces and TSH Collab, TSH’s coworking hubs. With more than 6,000 rooms now open, TSH is operating in 16 European locations: Amsterdam City and West, Berlin, Dresden, The Hague, Delft, Vienna, Groningen, Eindhoven, Maastricht, Rotterdam, Florence, Bologna, and Paris, as well as two TSH Campus sites in Barcelona – student-only residences.
