native is your gateway to reaching students at scale

You have approximately 1,095 days to turn a typical student into a loyal customer. At native, we’re in the business of connecting national brands (like you) with a new, highly-engaged customer base (that’s Gen Z students).

Campus media

Having nurtured exclusive partnerships with 65+ Students’ Unions (SUs), and developed non-exclusive relationships with the rest of the SU market, we have unified campus media at scale. If you’re looking to capture young people’s attention, then look no further. Here’s how we’ve unlocked the student market:

With native, you can meet students when and where it matters.

With native, you have a national reach across 65+ UK student hotspots that entrust native to manage their media exclusively, plus 50 more who native work with non-exclusively. Save time and resources by booking multiple locations at once. Or, cherry-pick the campuses that matter most to you.

Gen Z is one of the most exciting demographics around. As students, they’re financially independent, with disposable income, and shopping in new verticals for the first time. Oh – and did we mention there are just shy than 3 million of them waiting for you across native’s partner campuses, right now?

You don’t need to tell us. Gen Z can be hard to connect with. But at university, they’re open and receptive to new ideas – and new brands. Our campus media spans digital and IRL touchpoints, mirroring the spaces where Gen Z students are most open to brand discovery.

Our exclusively-managed media placements immerse your brand in student life – from first scroll to last orders. But that’s just the start. With the capacity to build integrated, multi-channel campaigns that span the full student marketing calendar, we’re your gateway to nurturing students into loyal customers.

Our reach is national – but our focus has always been local. We partner with Students’ Unions, which are the beating hearts of campus culture. We foster deep local connections with each of our sites, empowering you to localise your campaigns so that they resonate.

We hold exclusive media rights at 72 campuses – and we can pass that exclusivity on to you. Make sure you are the only brand in your industry on campus, to establish yourself as the student choice.

Building trust with students is crucial – which means you need to lean into trusted channels. native works in tandem with Students’ Unions to uphold advertising standards, ensuring only ethical, trustworthy advertisers make it onto campus. If that’s you – let’s talk.
