We’re headed to Vienna this week to soak up some old-school atmosphere and help ourselves to a little bit of cultural refinement. And while we’re there, we’re also going to chat with thought leaders in the world of student accommodation to give us an inside peek at what the future of student housing might look like.

The Class of 2020, our favorite think tank on student housing in Europe, is hosting The Class Conference 2016 in a city famous for its legendary coffeehouse scene, where great minds have historically reimagined our beliefs, exchanged revolutionary ideas and reshaped our world views. We’re hoping to harness some of that magic and sprinkle it all over the concept of “student accommodation.”

Our part of the ongoing conversation takes place on November 3rd, Day 2 of The Class Conference . You’ll find The Student Hotel Founder and CEO, Charlie MacGregor hanging out in the Sofa Room from 14.45 to 15.30 to talk about “Co-living: collective living concepts beyond the university dorm” as part of an interactive panel. At the EXACT SAME TIME (grrr), Felix Hillen, Managing Director and Partner at The Student Hotel, will be taking part in a power session in the Arena to discuss “Italy: Student housing as an emerging concept.”

We know it’s a tough choice. But if you’re in town, heading to the conference, and you’re looking for sparkling intellect, witty observation and expert insight into world of co-living and student residence hybrids, you really can’t go wrong with each option. See you in the City of Sachertorte!
