Student Accommodation Summit 2019

Embedding a Long-Term, Strategic Approach for Your Student Accommodation to Ensure Global Competitiveness

Student Accommodation has become one of the fastest growing sectors for commercial real estate, with education overall contributing $32.2 billion to the Australian economy.

Attracting a growing percentage of international students, Australia’s major universities remain a destination for overseas students, with Victoria accounting for approximately 36% of all enrollments. 

Student accommodation providers have begun to notice the need to develop innovative solutions and strategies to meet supply and demand. Incorporating student accommodation into a campus master plan is one way to do this, as well as learning strategies to future-proof these residencies. 

Returning in 2019 on the 26-27 March, the 2nd Annual Student Accommodation Summit will gather 15+ Speakers who will delve into the new strategies student accommodation providers are implementing to cater to the growing demands of interstate and international students.
