Who should be a member of HSA?
Anyone who is interested in housing studies can join the association and we are keen to recruit members from across the housing studies community and throughout the UK, including:
- Students of vocational housing courses or those undertaking housing related post-graduate research;
- Academics with housing research interests;
- Researchers working in non-academic environments such as local government, the social housing movement, the voluntary sector, private sector housing agencies, government offices and arms-length agencies;
- Policy makers, practitioners and decision-takers across the housing community who are interested in research and in the application of research to policy and practice
