SAA NSW Industy Lunch

Student Accommodation Association's next Industry Lunch will be held in Sydney. Featuring key speaker Bassina Farbenblum!

Date: Wednesday 20 November

Venue: Hyatt Regency Sydney

Time: 12:00 noon – 2:00pm

Bassina will preview key findings from the Information for Impact survey of over 5,000 international students, which will be released in a report in late November 2019. The survey addressed a range of issues related to international students’ housing, including where they lived, how they found their housing and the problems they encountered. She will focus in particular on findings related to students who lived in PBSA, as well as those who lived in share houses, which were by far the most common housing category.

Bassina will also discuss key findings from the UNSW Human Rights Clinic's report No Place Like Home: Addressing Exploitation of International Students in Sydney’s Housing Market, released in July 2019.

Tickets Prices:

Executive Members: $45 per head
