With over 30 years at the forefront of UK Wi-Fi and fibre broadband Glide delivers high-speed, reliable and fully managed Wi-Fi to universities, property developers, landlords and businesses.

Glide's expansion into Europe is a result of an increased demand from both UK and European student accommodation providers.

Since 2009, Glide has been a popular choice for UK operators expanding across Europe and in a few short years has achieved distribution of services across a wide range of the best university cities.

Where are we?

Where are we?

With more than 1,100 pieces of EU green legislation, European developers are ahead of the game in terms of how technology can create zero-carbon buildings and massive operational savings.

This technology all relies on robust and resilient networking infrastructure and Wi-Fi. A Glide Smart Fibre Infrastructure™ creates a seamless learning and living environment for students, while reducing the operational costs involved in running the accommodation.

Protecting the environment saving money

In 2009, one of Europe’s premier Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) was opened in Amsterdam - The Student Hotel - with a Glide managed service designed to provide fast and reliable Wi-Fi, reduce cost and space requirements and future-proof the building. The Student Hotel in Florence won Best Mixed-Use development in the 2019 MIPIM Awards.

Working with the student hotel

We’ve been working with Glide Student since our building opened. Any service that we provide we expect to be the best, which is a big part of why we went with Glide Student. We had a look at who else was out there and what was available in terms of different speeds and we decided after extensive research that Glide Student were going to be the best provider. From our experience so far, we have definitely made the right decision.

I would definitely recommend Glide to other clients. The experience we’ve had and our students have had is night and day from what we had before
