Mission & purpose

Yugo is the first global student housing operator, created to enhance students’ overall experiences throughout and beyond university and college life. Yugo offers a truly differentiated living experience that is environmentally and socially conscious, emotionally supportive and safe. Based in Denver, Colorado, the business was created through merging three successful international operational brands – the student housing company, Nexo Residencias and Uninest Student Residents with the U.S. operations of Ucomm that were under Global Student Accommodation (GSA), the leading real estate and investment asset manager. Yugo’s experienced leadership team builds on decades of experience to help more students across the globe learn, grow and thrive. Yugo’s global portfolio will encompass 110 properties (living spaces) in nine countries, with 42,000 beds in more than 69 of the top cities in the world for higher education, stretching from Seattle to Melbourne. In the U.S., Yugo’s 29 living spaces span 19 states in cities such as Philadelphia, PA, Columbia, MO, Minneapolis, MN, and Seattle, WA, and college towns such as Madison, WI, Tallahassee, FL and Tempe, AZ, among others. Yugo will join forces with students to build a better future for the planet and themselves. The business pledges to eliminate single-use plastics in living spaces and corporate offices, supply sustainably sourced beds and chairs to support students’ physical and emotional environment and educate students on energy usage and sustainable living in Yugo spaces around the world. This approach will be enabled by Yuniverse, Yugo’s bespoke technology platform providing digital services with greater reach and connectivity to students globally.
