'Can AI improve delivery of student accommodation stock?: Opportunities and Risk'

The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the student accommodation sector presents a transformative opportunity to address the critical challenge of student accommodation shortages. By leveraging AI, we can streamline project delivery, enhance decision-making processes, and optimise resource allocation. AI technologies such as predictive analytics and machine learning can forecast student accommodation demands, identify optimal construction sites, and improve supply chain efficiencies. This not only accelerates the pace of student accommodation development but also ensures that projects are aligned with future needs. Embracing AI in our approach to student accommodation stock delivery can significantly mitigate shortages, offering a smarter, more efficient pathway to meet the growing demand.

'Transforming Rhodes House'

With significant but considered interventions, Stanton Williams have transformed the Rhodes Trust’s historic headquarters in Oxford, doubling its usable space and significantly improving its environmental performance. In a highly constrained site, the project has provided new conference and meeting spaces, office and bedroom accommodation, whilst sensitively restoring the listed building and gardens. It will enable the expansion of the Rhodes Scholarship programme, providing a place – in line with the Trust’s mission – ‘Where difficult discussions and different points of views can be shared and challenged by people of all backgrounds and nationalities’.
