What do high streets and universities and higher education colleges have in common? Come along to an in-person forum discussion on the opportunities and challenges of institution-led high street regeneration, hosted by Hassell and London Higher.

Universities and higher education colleges often have facilities on high streets and in town centres, or a desire to be physically present in these places. Historically, the motivation has been to ensure accessibility and visibility of the institution, but today we are seeing a shift towards a much more holistic approach to place management, seeking to integrate student life and learning with the public experience.

In this in-person forum, hosted by Hassell with London Higher, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of institution-led high street regeneration. This forum can seat up to 18 stakeholders. If you are someone with a vested interest in high street regeneration, campus experience, and the role of higher education in the shaping of cities and places, please send an expression of interest to our team.
