About

The Best in Class Awards were established in 2016 in order to recognize, highlight and promote companies and initiatives at the forefront of student living, working and learning. In a young and learning industry, we find it important to honour thought leadership and encourage the exchange of bright ideas. For the second year in a row, The Class and European Internet Service Provider ASK4 are partnering to invite bright young talents to shape the future of “Blended Living”. In 2019, we launch the Innovation Challenge, a dedicated space where an innovation-driven competition takes place that translates challenges into solutions and concepts to actions.
