Please join us to learn all about the German student accommodation market, and meet the people who are changing the student accommodation sector. Two panel discussions will explore the future of German student living, and the way new investors are changing the student housing market. 

German student housing and micro-living have quickly become a favourite asset class in the investment community. Student housing came out as a particularly resilient product after the recent financial crisis, and Germany remains a beacon of calm in a politically unstable world. This means the market is developing quickly, with local developers building student housing portfolio and  international investors eager to snap up larger portfolios.

At the same time German universities attract record numbers of students from abroad. The national government has set a target for 2020 of 350,000 incoming international students. A number they are likely to hit in 2017, considering the growth numbers in recent years. But what does this mean for the public and private student housing sectors? How will universities deal with this growth, and how are cities competing to attract talent in a country where population growth is far from the norm?

We bring together communities of investors, developers and operators of student accommodation, as well as the university and public sectors.
