Why you’ll love working here

We live in a world where everything is changing – from the way we travel to how we study, live and work. But one thing remains constant: our need to connect.

Through our exceptional international team of lively, smart and motivated people that embrace the student spirit and bring it to life every day.


We have big plans. By 2023, we aim to have 65 locations across Europe. That’s 26,000 rooms and almost one million square metres of shared spaces. Beyond bricks and mortar, our new TSHLife app and digital platform is also ready to connect nearly a million current and former co-living and co-working guests. In 2019, we’re in a phase of hyper growth. After opening 12 operational hotels in our scale-up phase, we’re evolving into an industry-leading company – redefining the concept of a hotel as the world knows it.
