Why Invest in Student Property in Sheffield

Many people are attracted to investing in student property due to its hands-off nature. A management company is put in place which means that all investors must worry about is what they will do with the rental returns. Student property in Sheffield is seen as particularly attractive because it has low existing purpose-built student accommodation stock and the stock that is in service commands a 25% rental premium. Many universities have embraced purpose-built student accommodation to entice potential students, especially international students. They make up 16.9% of Sheffield’s total student population and contribute £187.2m to the local economy.

Considering the Coronavirus pandemic, we understand that people have reservations with regards to the requirement for student accommodation. However, 89 out of 92 universities surveyed confirmed that they will host some sort of in-person lectures. The necessity to attend will mean that student accommodation will still be in demand as students will need somewhere to stay. The University of Sheffield is a highly regarded university, ranking within the QS top 100 universities worldwide (92) and 12th in the UK. We anticipate student levels to remain consistent and the competition to be fiercer amongst lower ranking universities for international students.
