Accommodation Matters brings sector experts together to discuss the Higher Education sector’s key issues through the lens of student accommodation.
In the second episode of our ‘Preparing for September’ two-parter, our panel of expert sector guests discuss their plans to welcome students to campus in September, how they’ll be meeting students’ needs (as discussed in the previous episode), and how adaptable these plans are in the face of an uncertain situation with Covid-19.
Host Darren Ellis is joined by an expert sector panel made up of:
- Einita Suman, Director of Accommodation and Operations at University of Birmingham
- Rebecca O’Hare, Assistant Director of Residence Life and Accommodation at University of Leeds
- Clare Ody, Head of Customer Experience at Unite Students
