Can Student Digs Inspire a Solution To The UK’s Lack Of Housing?

If you’re living in ‘student digs’ you may be bemused that student style residences have been suggested as a possible answer to the demand for more accommodation, especially in London and other major UK cities. They are, of course, referring to the newer style of purpose built developments springing up in university cities and towns throughout the UK.
