What can UK accommodation providers learn from overseas PBSA?

7 June 2022

What does student accommodation look like in different markets, and how does the UK’s provision differ from the US and Australia? Learn more from the lively, informative discussion in this month’s episode of Accommodation Matters.

Accommodation Matters brings sector experts together to discuss the Higher Education sector’s key issues through the lens of student accommodation, and this month, we’re going around the world to hear about what student accommodation looks like across different markets.

Discussion points include the differences between student accommodation provision in the UK, United States and Australia, how each market caters to significant international student numbers, and the preferences of domestic students.

This month’s podcast is hosted by Jenny Shaw, Unite Students’ Higher Education External Engagement Director, and features an expert international panel made up of:

  • Marion Bayley, Chief Executive Officer at Deakin Residential Services and President of the Asia-Pacific Student Accommodation Association (APSAA)
  • Tim Daplyn, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at Global Student Living
  • Emelie Helsen, Campus Manager at Coventry University London
