Learning outcomes for participants

Participants will benefit from industry specific professional development and growth, based on ACUHO-I’s Core Competencies: The Body of Knowledge for Campus Housing Professionals.

The format is based on learning and working together in core groups with an assigned faculty member who will be your Industry mentor and coach during GHTI. On completion of GHTI participants have the opportunity to maintain this professional mentoring relationship.

Topics covered during the GHTI include:

  • Developing as a Professional
  • Policy Development and Student Involvement
  • Student Wellbeing
  • Occupancy Management
  • Human Resources
  • Corporate Student Accommodation (PPP's)
  • Programming, Academic Initiatives and Student Leaders
  • Crisis/Risk Management
  • Facilities Management
  • Financial & Budget Management
  • Current Issues

The program provides an intensive learning community. Participants benefit from the formal training, group activities and the many informal networking opportunities. They build a unique industry professional network with other participants and with Faculty members from around the world. They have the opportunity to plan their professional development through guided self-assessment.

Participants receive industry recognition on completion of GHTI. The GHTI is based on the National Housing Training Institute (NHTI), which is coordinated by ACUHO-I and held annually in the United States.


The course was fantastic. It was great to meet peers from across the world all passionate about delivering an exceptional residential student experience. I now have a network of contacts that I can call on, and we share our knowledge and experience freely, which is lovely. The course was fast paced with really good content, and I came away with some brilliant ideas ready to implement in my own institution.

'Joining the first-ever Global Housing Training Institute (#GHTI) course in 2019 was an incredible experience, and I genuinely can’t recommend it enough! I gained a wealth of knowledge, and the course content and faculty were top-notch. The faculty, hailing from all corners of the globe, brought real-world insights to every session, making the whole learning process engaging and super valuable. We delved into a variety of topics related to Student Accommodation, looking at it from a global perspective, which was eye-opening. Plus, the course was held in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, giving us the opportunity to learn and explore in a fantastic setting. The supportive community at the institute made the experience even better. Networking with industry professionals and sharing experiences really enriched the learning journey. The skills and confidence I gained during the course have been invaluable in broadening my knowledge. If you're looking to dive deeper into the world of student accommodation, this course is an absolute game-changer.'
