Key Information Set 2015/16
Provider bed number
return to field list
This field records the number of provider owned/sponsored beds.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
This field should contain the number of bed spaces in provider owned/sponsored accommodation for the location it is being reported for. This field should not be returned where no such accommodation exists.
This field should only represent accommodation available to undergraduates.
When counting bed numbers associated with the provider, head tenancy agreements where the provider acts as an agent or a private landlord can lead to confusion over whether to count these beds as owned by the provider or privately owned. A distinction should be made based on the number of beds in the property; if it is 11 or more, then it should be included in provider's owned/sponsored, if it is 10 or below then it should be in private rental.
Vetted private accommodation should not be included in Location.INSTBEDS, as the accommodation is not owned or managed by the provider.
This field can contain values in the range 0-99999, validation will restrict the range to 1-15000.
