Post-Panel Networking


(1) What are the best strategies for student housing development in the urban core? Are developers building market-rate apartments in Chicago with amenities that appeal to students?

(2) How are universities partnering with developers, architects, GCs and more in reaching their student objectives? Are these partnerships more hands-on or hands-off? What's in the pipeline for P3? 

(3) What innovations have there been in student housing in terms of design and construction? Unique to Chicago? On-campus compared to off-campus?

(4) What's the 2020 Vision for student housing in Chicago? What are the biggest challenges?

(5) Beyond Student Housing: What additional considerations (graduate student housing, faculty housing, facilities) are impacting what's being built?
