Happy Birthday Riverside House!

It was party time at Riverside House as Salford student accommodation provider Portergate celebrated the first anniversary of the opening of its flagship luxury halls of residence.

It’s been a fantastic first 12 months for Riverside House, which continue to win acclaim for the quality of its boutique-style accommodation and the welcome it provides for students.


The team at Riverside House were joined by Portergate’s chairman, Anthony Jackson, and managing director, Karen Preece, in the celebration to mark the milestone, which included cake and balloons!

And the next 12 months look to be equally exciting for Riverside House and Portergate.

The company is well on course to achieve its ambition for Riverside House to be recognised as the number one location for UK and overseas students in the city.

And building work is about to start soon on its next multi-million pound project in Preston, Lancashire, as Portergate rolls out its special brand of quality student accommodation across the North West.

Anthony Jackson is delighted with the first year at Riverside and the reaction it has received.

The first 12 months has seen growing numbers of students attracted to the welcome, security and high standard of accommodation the stylish development offers.

He praised the team for their hard work and dedication over the past year and said: “The high standards we set reflect the demands and expectations of today’s students, and in particular their parents, who expect their sons and daughters to live in hotel-class accommodation while they enjoy their higher education.

“There is nothing quite like Riverside House in Salford. It highlights our total commitment to quality in everything we do.


“We are creating high-quality boutique student accommodation in stylish, contemporary buildings.

“As a company we are very passionate about what we do and we are providing new developments that are attractive to students from the UK and overseas and which also add real value to the community.”

Riverside House, which sits on the banks of the River Irwell in Blackfriars Road is a hotel-class purpose-built halls of residence containing 242 luxury en suite student rooms.
