In July 2019, the British Property Federation released ‘Student Wellbeing: In Purpose-Built Student Accommodation’, a student wellbeing guide for private accommodation providers – a landmark for recognising the importance of wellbeing in private student housing.

Unite Students’ Jenny Shaw draws on student stories and sector case studies to outline the guide’s main recommendations and existing good practice within the sector. Sharing insight and recommendations for how private providers can meet these new standards, as well as valuable insight for universities into what they can reasonably expect from their accommodation partners on the wellbeing front, this well-received session is well worth a watch for anyone involved in the student housing sector.
