Why This Matters

Join us for our Chicago Student Housing & University Development this March!

With areas such as the Chicago Loop - which has over 58,000 students at 22 colleges and universities downtown - demand has never been higher for housing.

We'll be covering the Investing in Student Housing. With some of the biggest student housing investors headquartered in Chicago, what's evolving in the space and the way investors are approaching student housing?

This will be followed by a University & Campus Lifestyle perspective - hearing directly from the universities and those working closely with them on what their 2020 vision is, and how the sector continues to evolve. How are those in the industry partnering to create live-learn environments and prepare for Gen-Z? What the innovations in design & construction are to address the constraints and ever-evolving student needs?
