With a quality of life in Rome outweighing education costs, the city is in the front line in the Italian cities ranking for student housing applications, -e.g the demand off-campus now exceeds 35.000 units-, and attracts more and more investors and stakeholders aiming to address the rising demand in student accomodations.
The fourth Edition of the Student Housing Congress will consider the specific dynamics of the Rome market as well as the opportunities created for all stakeholders: managers, workers, investors, public actors and Universities. The meeting will also address the role of student housing as leverage for the development and urban regeneration, the integration in new legal framework of residential housing, hotels, co-working and co-living, the specialisation of services and investments prospects in the short and long-term.
