Bio

Frank Uffen joined The Student Hotel (TSH) group in 2010 and together with founder Charlie MacGregor helped create a vision for a super mobile, highly educated talent force hopping from city to city and looking for places where they could come together and connect. That vision is rapidly becoming a reality, following TSH’s implementation of an accelerated development programme.

Frank works with public and private partners on TSH’s large-scale mixed-use urban campuses in university cities across Europe, with the goal to bring its innovative hybrid hotel services and wide range of facilities to students, travellers, entrepreneurs, local residents and young professionals. That same goal drove Frank to co-found The Class of 2020 think tank - a platform for networking, innovation and exchange of best practices in the youth education and travel market in Europe.

Frank’s own ‘wunderlust' started with an exchange at the Waldorf Schule in Bremen, followed by a stint at Concordia University, Montreal, where he obtained a Bachelor in Urban Studies. He subsequently received an MA in City Planning from the University of Amsterdam and an MBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from IE Business School, Madrid. Frank is based in Amsterdam but spends half of his time abroad.
