Are increasing house prices and rents in Cambridge affecting you? Complete this university survey!

last modified May 20, 2016 11:09 AM

As I am sure you are aware, house prices and rents in the Cambridge area have risen sharply over the past few years.
 
The University has commissioned a survey to understand how these increases have affected staff employed by the University or the Colleges.
 
Even if you have lived in Cambridge for many years, I would urge you to complete the survey, so that we gain as complete a picture as possible of staff housing circumstances.
 
The survey is online, and can be found at:
 
http://cambridge.eu.qualtrics.com//SE/?SID=SV_bDHaxk2bovJyS0Z
 
Any published analyses or reports will be anonymised, and will not enable any individual to be identified.
 
The survey asks questions about you and your household (in order to assess current and future housing demand); about your children, if any, (in order to estimate the future demand for nursery and school places); about your household income (in order to assess affordable housing costs); about the kind of accommodation that you have lived in over the past five years (in order to understand how University staff cope with the Cambridge housing market); and about your housing aspirations for the future.
 
The survey also has a box in which you can write any views or experiences which you feel may be useful to the University in understanding how the housing market is affecting staff.
 
We hope that you will complete the survey, which is brief and should take no more than ten to fifteen minutes to complete.
 
The research is being conducted by the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research.  If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Michael Jones, Research Associate, Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research, Department of Land Economy, .
