The United Kingdom Town and Gown Conference is a two day national event held in Nottingham at the Nottingham Conference Centre with a view to sharing best practice in relation to off-campus activity within the context of the HEI sector. The format follows on from the National Community Conference held in 2014.
This conference will bring together delegates from universities, local councils, Police and Students’ Unions to examine the latest trends in University and community engagement, and provide an opportunity to share leading practice with those working in the field. This conference will build on the discussions held in 2014 at the Manchester National Community Conference to determine how key players are getting it right ‘today and tomorrow’ from both a national and international perspective.
Sessions will be held to share unique ways to respond to the impacts on housing and neighbourhoods where students have a strong presence. Delegates will be discussing how universities, local authorities, residents and other agencies are working together to overcome challenges and ensure that communities benefit from and value their universities.
