HSA sign up information

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

Member benefits

  • Members get reduced rates to all our events, and some other housing sector events with partner organisations;
  • Members can use the HSA blog as a means to disseminate their own news, research and ideas;
  • We have an event sponsorship programme to support members to disseminate and discuss their work;
  • We provide a number of bursaries to support early career and unfunded housing researchers to attend our annual conference;
  • We are pleased to run the Valerie Karn prize, rewarding the best early career paper at our annual conference
  • As a learned society, we nominate members as fellows to the Academy of Social Sciences
