Digital Nomads

The aim of this research, funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain, was to understand how digital technology is being used to enable new forms of shared living in the private rented sector. With a focus on the use of digital technology in shared rented accommodation, the research investigated the application of digital technology in three areas: access to properties, management of properties and lived experience.

Shared housing is becoming an increasingly common long-term housing solution but, despite this, it is an area which is extremely under-researched. Co-living for millennials has its roots in 'hacker houses' in the USA, which provided cheap, shared accommodation for aspiring entrepreneurs in expensive urban areas and there is potential for such co-living models to be expanded into other tenures and household types.
