Survey on Housing Access in Higher Education Communities

Communities across the UK, and internationally, are struggling with housing uncertainty and affordability; those hosting higher education institutions are no exception. To better understand the needs and challenges of stakeholders at higher education institutions and in their host communities, the International Town-Gown Association and the UKTGA have launched a survey to gather input from institutional leaders and local leaders about town-gown relationships in the context of housing.

The data will be used to identify key variables in achieving affordable and attainable housing and highlight effective approaches, strategies, and tools for resolving institutional and community housing needs.  We want to hear from you about the housing issues facing your community.

The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete and we want to ensure that the UK is well represented in the data collection, so please set aside some time to complete it.  To take the survey, visit:
