Housing Access in Communities Hosting Higher Education Institutions SURVEY
Communities around the nation are struggling with housing uncertainty and affordability; those hosting higher education institutions are no exception. To better understand the needs and challenges of stakeholders at higher education institutions and in their host communities, ITGA is partnering with the National League of Cities, along with other town-gown organizations from around the globe, on a housing survey.

The goal of the survey is to gather input from institutional leaders and local leaders about town-gown relationships in the context of housing. The data will be used to identify key variables in achieving affordable and attainable housing and highlight effective approaches, strategies, and tools for resolving institutional and community housing needs.

We want to hear from you regarding the housing issues facing your community. The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete.
