Inquiry

Universities' involvement in the housing sector - Scoping study
A team of researchers at University College London are looking at ways in which universities, around the world, are developing responses to housing market pressures in their own cities/vicinities. This extends beyond the provision of student accommodation. They would like to hear from colleagues who are aware of practices and initiatives underway at their own universities - a sentence on what's happening and suggestions for contacts or sources of further information will suffice.
Use this link to the questionnaire and respond to David Fitzpatrick.
