Colin Marshall delivered the presentation at 2014 Student Housing Forum.

The 5th annual Student Housing Forum brought together university planners and managers with designers and student accommodation experts to look at the ways in which universities can provide distinctive, affordable, secure, supportive and inclusive campus living. It examined the features that distinguish best practice, considers the challenges for supply and affordability and beyond that explores the ways in which student accommodation goes beyond a residence to an environment that offers the best campus experience.

  34. 34. Global challenges for the profession 34
  35. 35. 35 Global challenge How is the profession responding? Constantly evolving tertiary education landscape Housing professional looking to their associations – eg ACUHO-I. Adapting, innovating , stretching and more for less Supporting students whose needs are constantly changing Building resilience, innovative programs and support The new norm Cost of living pressures Alcohol and binge drinking Taking the lead with education programs and initiatives. Occupancy challenges, fluctuating demand and “crystal balling” Marketing focus, commercial orientation/diversification. Early offers, retention programs etc Growth, new building developments and refurbishment Financing and partnership models becoming more prevalent Professional legitimacy - the impact of student residential experiences Some countries and institutions recognise and support this but it’s not universal
  36. 36. “Student housing professionals should have a world view, an international perspective, and global knowledge to understand what is going on around the world and be able to adapt to new trends and changes. Think global and act local” Rebecca Chan, Director of Student Residence Office, City University of Hong Kong 36
