Well-being – A Dialogue

It's been said that mental health isn't a destination, but an ongoing journey. Navigate between students' inner and outer worlds to better understand how shared services, spaces, and amenities can foster a sense of security and solidarity on the road to happiness. Find out what goes into designing experiences and spaces that promote social exchange, collaboration, and ultimately, cohesion among students.

Data Insight

In recent years, both domestic and international student numbers have continued to boom in Britain and Ireland. These markets are among the most reliable in Europe for providing strong investor returns. Universities in these countries remain highly sought-after globally, drawing the best students, and thus increasing demand for the best facilities from student housing providers. At the same time, recent changes have been made to the structure of student debt repayments, and we’re seeing an increase in youth unemployment. To what extent are these trends impeding growth within the British and Irish markets? And in what ways has this market proven to be resilient and innovative in the face of increased volatility?  To decipher these and many other questions, join us in London for our final Regional Forum.

Site Tour

Want to be a host?

Are you interested in becoming a site tour host? This opportunity is for Vienna-based student housing operators that can show up to 100 executive attendees around their building. The hosting sponsors should offer refreshments on arrival and arrange for their staff to guide visitors. In exchange, we will help you gain visibility pre- and post-event by offering promotional materials, mentions on our social media channels, and photos taken during the tours. This is a great chance to open your doors to our community of impact-driven leaders within the student living sector, showing them what makes your site stand out from the rest.
