About Scape

Scape is no ordinary student accommodation and we don’t do recruitment the ordinary way. Everything here is a little bit different – think of it as the Scape Way: from filling Koko’s dance floor with more than 1000 students to launching industry-leading competitions with WeWork, we provide our residents a year that lasts a lifetime. We invest in people by offering a nurturing culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, valuing fun as much as our commitment to shelter and shape the minds of tomorrow.

Scape is one of the most exciting brands to be joining right now. With 12 locations across 2 continents and US expansion plans, the scale of our ambition to build a world-class student living brand is matched only by the disruptive innovation that underpins everything we do.
