Accommodation Matters S04E02: The rising cost of living

5 April 2022

Our latest episode of Accommodation Matters delves into the big topic of the moment – the cost of living crisis, and what it means for students and their accommodation.

This month’s panel explores the backdrop of student finance against which the current situation is set, current trends being seen among the student population and which demographics are particularly vulnerable to the current changes, and what impact this is having on the student accommodation sector – as well as what it might mean in the coming years.

Host Jenny Shaw is joined by an expert sector panel made up of:

  • Vivi Friedgut, Founder and CEO of Blackbullion
  • Lynne Condell, formerly Manager of Student Money Advice at Liverpool John Moores University
  • Michelle Etchells, Head of Corporate Shared Services at Unite Students
