The Student Hotel Provides Refuge, Virtual Education and Entertainment, to Residents Stranded Across Europe by Covid-19
“We’re going to be open until we don’t have any customers. And then to be honest, we expect not to close. We’ve reached out to embassies, we’ve reached out to NGOs, to the Salvation Army and the Red Cross in some cities. We’ve reached out to the army, local hospitals, of course, doctors and nurses, providing accommodation for them. We’ve been able to really utilise the fact that we have resident guests, so we’re not going to close for them, they’ve got nowhere to go,” Charlie MacGregor said.
“We’ve been able to provide accommodation to people who have been kicked out of other hotels and we’re trying to help this situation in any way we can, because it’s a time when everybody’s stepping up,” he added.
The Student Hotel has a total of 14 operating locations across six European countries including The Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Austria, Italy and France, with more than 5,000 rooms. Although occupation numbers are fluctuating considerably day-to-day due to varying local pandemic conditions, MacGregor said there were between 400 to 25 residents staying at TSH locations in European countries in the week before Easter.
