Student accommodation is a key issue for students, institutions, towns and cities. Far from set in stone, the forms, functions and stated purpose of student accommodation in England have emerged and has become more complex. 

Focusing on theoretical and operational approaches, Professor Alexi Marmot and Dr Zachery Spire will explore the economic, social and educational influence of student accommodation for students, institutions and the wider public. 

They will examine some of the sharp changes in policy, planning and practice and will reflect on some key drivers including: student numbers, costs and pricing of student accommodation and the importance of staff and student relations to the student experience. 

The influence of student accommodation for students’ access, participation, recruitment, retention and cost of attendance in English higher education will also be highlighted.
