An industry first ‘Student Accommodation’ podcast was released last week by City Room Rentals, a leading online marketplace for student housing.
The first few episodes featured Stewart Moore (chief executive at CRM Students), Paddy Allen (partner at Cushman & Wakefield) and James Metcalf (founder and chief executive of Crosslane Group), with each new episode concentrating on a different area and uploaded via LinkedIn. The podcast is then widely shared within the sector, including operators, universities and investors.
The first series will also include talks with Brian Welsh and Nathan Goddard and focus on all things student housing. Topics range from investments, operations, student health, finance and design.
An upcoming podcast (Wednesday 27 March) will see Nick Findlay, managing director at City Room Rentals, discussing the fast-growing Build to Rent sector with Richard Sampson, chief executive of the Watkin Jones Group PLC.
They will be discussing activity in both the student accommodation and Build to Rent sectors.
The podcasts are free to subscribe, download and listen to, and can be heard via the PodBean website.
