The Student Accommodation Association would like to thank our Discussion Panel and members for joining the conversation at our Preparing Student Accommodation Providers for Recovery Virtual Roundtable held on 9 March 2022.
Bringing in a new year means welcoming new and returning international students back to Australia. In a post pandemic world, it is vital that we continue to ensure the safety of our residents and that student accommodation providers are supported in applying COVID-19 Safe protocols.
Our Discussion Panel shared insights into the challenges student accommodation providers face as international students return in 2022. Experts in the Australian international education sector like our speaker Alison Dell emphasised the economic importance to the Australian Government of international students returning and shared recent data on the return of international students to Australia.
We appreciate the input from all panel experts including Anouk Darling, Kimberley Roberts, and Geoff Denison who provided solutions to further challenges faced by the student accommodation sector currently. The discussion panel stood together as a united front in how we can move forward and support international students who are returning to face-to-face learning with COVID-19 Safe student accommodation.
Once again, we thank our sponsors StarRez, Inc., Western Union Business Solutions and Insurgo Insurance Broking Pty Ltd for their ongoing support and partnership.
We look forward to SAA members joining the conversation at future events.
