The Role of the UKTGA is to:

The UK Town and Gown Association strengthens town and gown partnerships by providing a network of off-campus practitioners and resources, identifying and sharing leading practices, innovative solutions and creative opportunities within off-campus communities.

We work closely with the USA based International Town and Gown Association (ITGA) to ensure a truly global approach to off-campus management https://www.itga.org/

  • Focus on off campus living – but with an appreciation of the Student Lifecycle
  • Create key off campus campaigns to enhance the student experience
  • Develop academic research
  • Collate a regional library of best practice
  • Collate a regional key contacts/stakeholders list
  • Serve on committees or task forces and take on special assignments relating to off campus themes
