Student Property Investments: Our current properties

Close-to-campus student accommodation: 8-10% NET

There have never been more students in the UK, both domestic and overseas – higher education is one of the country’s major growth areas. As a result, well-located, well-appointed student accommodation is at a premium.

We have a wide-ranging portfolio of properties in some of the most successful university cities in the UK. All our properties are run by professional onsite management teams, which enables us to provide an effortless income to our buyers.

There are no hidden fees, surcharges or supplements; the 10-year fixed NET yield applies from day 1 of operations. What’s more, below £150,000 our properties are exempt from Stamp Duty.

Student Property Investments

Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) offers lucrative investment yields. While many assets in alternative industry sectors are underperforming, investing in student accommodation has returned the best yields in UK property since 2011 (Savills).

Globally, investment in student housing has risen from $3.4 billion to $7.2 billion between 2007 and 2013, while in the UK, student property investment hit record levels in 2015 – overtaking the US for the first time.

Although up until now it is mostly institutional investors that have led worldwide student housing investment (accounting for 57% of overall sales volume), a refreshingly different business model has today made this rewarding sector more accessible and appealing to individual private investors.

On the world stage, the higher education sector is currently being valued at approximately $164 billion, and predictions are that this figure will reach $200 billion in the next 10 years.

UK university intake has been at record levels in each of the last four years, with consistent growth for decades. This trend has been enhanced further by the removal of previous intake caps, enabling universities to take in an unlimited number of new students.

Specifically in terms of international students, this population has doubled in size in the last 10 years and Knight Frank predicts growth of up to 20% over the next five years.

Given the uncertainty of buy-to-let, investing in student accommodation is all the more appealing.
