Martin Johansson is Secretary General at Studentbostadsföretagen since 2010. Studentbostadsföretagen is Sweden’s only trade organization for student accommodation companies. With over 60 members they represent more than a three-quarters share of the total national market.
As a unified voice towards politicians, public authorities and decision-makers Studentbostadsföretagen influence and set standards for the Swedish student accommodation market. The present market is still in many ways complex and restricted. Simultaneously the lack of student accommodation is evident in the country, increasing for every academic year, and production of new purpose built accommodation is far from sufficient. The work of Studentbostadsföretagen has during the last years focused on loosening the regulations and making it easier and more attractive for present and future operators to expand and invest in the Swedish student accommodation market.
