As one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), sustainable cities and communities has become a common pursuit in the contemporary urban era. Hence, a sustainable perspective is sensible to scrutinize tremendous urban transformation in rapidly growing global cities. This paper focuses on studentification-induced urban transformation and attempts to establish an evaluation framework revolving around sustainability through a systematic review of relevant literature on studentification. The new framework is designed to be more global, mutually beneficial, and operable, consisting of 5 dimensions, 19 criteria, and 37 indicators. Subsequently, an analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is suggested to analyze the value of indicators. Finally, this paper contributes to the research on sustainable urban transformation. There is a need to pay more attention to local constructs and the estimation of weights in the index system for studentification-induced urban transformation within the rubric of sustainability.
