Luce de Builteir Andrews 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.
