Who We Are

ASRA, the Association for Student Residential Accommodation, is the leading representative organisation for student accommodation professionals throughout the UK and Ireland. We’re a network of people working within student accommodation in the education, public and private sectors. The ASRA community is a diverse one; from housing associations, colleges and universities, students’ unions and organisations with a close link to student accommodation.

What We Do

We promote and support the work of professionals working with or in student accommodation throughout Ireland and the UK. ASRA is the place to come to for news about accommodation, job opportunities in the sector and discussions about all things student housing related. 

We work together to promote the best in student housing and management, keeping our members up to date on developments and latest trends in the sector. ´╗┐ASRA represents student accommodation providers on a range of statutory boards and in various housing-related organisations. We also run regional meetings, training events and the biggest student accommodation event in the UK and Ireland; the ASRA Annual Conference.
