Sodexo International University Lifestyle Survey

Sodexo has provided catering, accommodation and facilities management services to the higher education sector for nearly 50 years and partners with more than 1,000 universities in 32 countries. As a strategic partner to our university clients we focus on improving student experience through integrated services that promote quality of life.

Sodexo has conducted a UK University Lifestyle Survey biennially since April 2004, identifying and tracking trends in key non-academic areas of university life as experienced by undergraduate students. For the first time in its 14 year history, in response to a more global higher education sector, we have conducted the survey on a worldwide basis, polling over 4,000 students in six countries around the world (China, India, Italy, Spain, the UK and the USA).

The survey tracks the student journey, from pre-arrival, to arrival, living and departure, providing us with valuable insight which enables us to deliver better services.
