We are delighted to publish our latest research report on the subject of Student Life. The report is unique in providing a comparison between opinion polls conducted just before the breakout of the global pandemic, and contrasting this with survey result carried out at the peak of the pandemic. As Education estates are figuring out their ‘new normal’, this report might provide some useful insights informed by the student body on how circumstances, aspirations and expectation have changed, and how this may impact the future of student life moving forward. Although it may seem obvious, the student voice is vital to the success of our research initiatives, as it is to all building projects within the sector.”
