Event description

Description

London Student Housing Conference

What does the London Plan mean for student housing? Where is the market headed? What is the impact of purpose built student accommodation on the rest of the housing market?

This is a one day event designed to address the questions above. It will be of interest to university, local authority policymakers and private developers. Our speakers will cover the most recent research and policy developments in the field.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and there will be opportunities to network. Tom Copley AM, Chair of the Housing Committee for the London Assembly, will chair the meeting.
