It's a brand!

As a creative student housing company, we build and manage projects in different cities with a great focus on durability and ecology. We think outside the box and aim to grow further through each project. Our renters play an important role in this process. Students are the future and we like to add value for them.

Upgrade Academy




We strongly believe our students have a lot of expertise, and we want to stimulate students to share their experiences and knowledge amongst the larger Upkot community. Upkotters who are interested in receiving personal coaching and guidance will be "matched" with an UpMentor from the same building.  

  • Do you want to become an UpMentor, and reserve some of your time to guide a fellow Upkotter from your building? Great! After a short training in the Upgrade Academy, you'll get a certificate and you'll officially be part of the UpMentor team. It's a great initiative for personal growth, and a great way to make new friends. Subscriptions for this academic year are closed.
  • Do you want free guidance from an UpMentor throughout the year? Study tips and trips, personal coaching and sharing of experiences, it's all part of the Mentorship program. Subscriptions for this academic year are closed.
