Snakes and League Table Ladders

The value of facilities for the student experience

As competition for students intensifies, the term 'student experience' has blossomed in the consciousness and strategic documents of universities around the world.

There are many angles from which to view the student experience, and many indicators to measure it - attraction and retention of students, satisfaction, engagement, graduate outcomes, league table rankings, etc.

This research explores the growing trend of measuring student experience, the responses of universities to maintain or improve their students’ educational journeys, and the importance of the campus environment in those responses. 

The combined evidence suggests that campus facilities play a direct role in student attraction, and an indirect role in satisfaction.
