UKTGA & Student Accommodation Conference 2019

The 12th annual Student Accommodation Conference & Awards, organised by Property Week events, returns on Wednesday 11 December 2019 at the InterContinental London – The O2.

The Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) asset class is maturing and evolving in an operating environment where student well-being, affordability and access to technology are paramount. The right insights and connections will be key to harnessing opportunities and navigating the challenges ahead, making this year’s Student Accommodation Conference a must attend event!

Connect with the most influential figures from the PBSA sector and beyond, including notable operators, investors, developers, universities and higher-education thought leaders.

Our UKTGA Chair, Cooper Healey, has been invited to deliver a session addressing both the possible implications and benefits of the increased number of PBSA being built to accommodate the increasing number of young people deciding to go to University.

UKTGA Conference 2018

Manchester Student Homes, in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, hosts its biggest and best UKTGA Conference yet!

Welcoming colleagues from across the UK and the United States, the United Kingdom Town Gown Association held its third Conference at Riddel Hall, Queen’s University Belfast on Monday 19th November - Tuesday 20th November 2018.

When Town met Gown

For the first time in the UK, Town and Gown officers had the chance to attain the Level 1 Certificate in ‘Town and Gown Relations’. This unique training session was delivered by Cooper Healey (Chair, UKTGA) and Poppy Humphrey (Off-Campus Student Affairs Officer, Manchester Student Homes) who was the only practitioner to hold this certificate, delivered by the ITGA. Opening discussions saw colleagues consider both the positives and challenges in their off-campus communities, and share their experiences.
