Technology and telecommunications

26% of students we surveyed in 2022 planned to buy a laptop within a year. These kinds of decisions can be hard to make, so young people turn to The Student Room to ask for peer-to-peer recommendations and reviews on their purchase decisions.

We know our audience better than anyone else. We understand their journey and can put your messages front and centre of those users displaying buying signals.

Engage thousands of students in our technology segment to build your brand in the youth market and increase sales from Freshers and students heading back to university.

When we asked students in our Big Autumn Survey (October 2022), which sources students went to for advice on what to purchase for university 66% said they visit The Student Room. View our summary to find out what was top of their shopping lists for starting university.
