Unite Students Accommodation Matters

S03E01 - Expectations v reality of the admissions cycle

October 20, 2021

Accommodation Matters brings sector experts together to discuss the Higher Education sector’s key issues through the lens of student accommodation.

Series 3 kicks off with a look at the 2021 admissions cycle and what it’s meant for students, universities and accommodation providers. Talking points include how universities have met the needs of an expanded student cohort, the picture of this year’s return to campus, and how this admissions cycle has impacted on accommodation strategy both this year and for the future.

Host Darren Ellis is joined by an expert sector panel made up of:

  • Vanessa Wilson, CEO of University Alliance
  • Wendy Roberts, Director of Staff and Student Accommodation at University of Warwick
  • Robert Garnish, Commercial Services Director at University of Glasgow
  • Karan Khanna, Chief Customer Officer at Unite Students
