How will Covid-19 impact student housing? This week we have seen universities cancel study-abroad programs, extend spring breaks, and implement remote study status. How might this effect occupancy come this fall? Could some universities actually experience strains on their housing supply?
In this special episode of the Student Housing Insight podcast, co-host Dr. Philip Badaszewski and myself sit down with down with Vincenzo Raimo, a Global Higher Education Specialist, to discuss possible impacts this pandemic may have on housing supply this upcoming summer and fall. This will likely be an on-going series of episodes as we help industry professionals try and navigate this escalating and very fluid situation.
