Higher Education: The future of student accommodation

Webinar | Education

About This Webinar

Thursday 10 February 2022, 09:30 – 10:00

University campuses are places where students from across the globe are brought together to live and study. This unique ecosystem has been significantly disrupted by the pandemic forcing students to return home mid-semester and creating uncertainty in their social and academic lives.

Despite this however, student numbers are rising, with a record number of 18-year-olds applying for full-time undergraduate courses in 2021/22.    It is therefore, more important than ever for universities to ensure their offering allows students to get the most out of their campus experience.

Our webinar designed specifically for the education sector covered:

Student accommodation
  • The current state of the market, the proliferation of bigger schemes and access to funding

  • How universities and private providers can work together to ensure student accommodation supports students in their educational journey

  • Making sure schemes are high-quality, affordable, well-suited and cater to individual needs

Campus initiatives
  • New build vs retrofitting – what’s the best option, particularly given existing building stock

  • How to combat supply chain issues through the use of good contracts

  • The move towards green and net zero and how to be realistic in achieving your targets

Future campuses
  • How the past two years have influenced changes, including a greater emphasis on well-being

  • The evolution of communal spaces

Who Should Attend

Estates Officers, Facilities Managers, Premises Managers, Student Accommodation Officers, Finance Officers and those with responsibility for student well-being.
