Learning to incorporate your student accommodation program into your campus masterplan will assist your university in providing a safe and enriching environment for its students. Doing this will also give student accommodation providers ideas for what they should consider to provide a fully integrated living and learning experience. Stanford is currently in the process of rethinking the role of housing in the education of its students and will share some ideas currently under consideration.
