GHTI UK 2023

3-8 December 2023
The University of Warwick


Intensive development for student accommodation professionals

Global Housing Training Institute UK

The GHTI is a unique opportunity for student accommodation professionals around the globe to participate in an intensive development event to build meaningful skills, discuss critical issues, and form strong bonds with colleagues.

It fosters cross-sector and cross-border conversations and shares best and next practice concepts to continually improve student accommodation and residential communities.

This is an exceptional development experience for advancing professionals (those with a minimum of 3 years' experience) working in student accommodation. Participants will meet and interact with other colleagues and establish mentor relationships with experts in the field while gaining the skills and competencies needed to meet the current and future demands of the profession.

The GHTI takes place in the UK every 2-3 years.

What's included

A five-day programme of professional development from 4-8 December at the University of Warwick, led by an international faculty, with single/ensuite accommodation and all meals. Arrival Sunday or Monday.

Who will benefit

We recommend at least 3 years’ experience in the field because the subjects assume a degree of understanding of the sector and/or practices. Beyond that, most accommodation staff below deputy director level will benefit - from team leaders in reslife operations to senior managers in PBSA operations overseeing multi-site operations.

Those in operational roles gain a broader understanding of areas that they may not be directly involved in, including budgets and strategy.  More experienced managers will round off their knowledge as they look to grow their careers or move to a deputy director or director role.

Everybody will benefit from the networking and mentoring that are part of and continue after the programme.

Discover the local area

There is plenty waiting to be explored on campus and close to the University of Warwick.


Uncover the history of Warwick, home to one of the finest castles in the country. It’s also home to a wealth of historic buildings, and plenty of places to eat and drink.


A medieval market town and the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Set on the banks of the River Avon, it’s home to historic buildings, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, and, of course, great theatre.


Take the traffic-free countryside walk to Kenilworth and unearth castle ruins. Kenilworth packs in a lot for a small town with some great restaurants.
