Why invest in student property in Sheffield?

Sheffield is home to two renowned universities, the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam. Combined, they educate over 60,000 students so Sheffield student demand is high. Sheffield regularly features as one of the best places to study in the UK and the universities attract lots of overseas students. The University of Sheffield is ranked as one of the top 50 most international universities in the world due to its high number of international students and staff, and collaboration with scholars worldwide. Sheffield Hallam is one of the largest universities in terms of student numbers, being the eleventh largest in the UK. The sheer number of students combined with the demographic, stands student accommodation in the city in good stead.


Why invest in student property in the UK?

A record number of overseas students applied to study at UK universities in 2019, and the overall number of under 21 applicants rose for the first time since 2016. We are seeing Britain become increasingly attractive to overseas students, as many universities in the UK enjoy worldwide prestige.

It is important to take a look at the fundamentals of the student property market before making the right decision about whether to invest in Sheffield. Total stock levels stand at 640,000 beds, against a total student population which has grown 9.7% over the past five years to around 1,844,500 This is despite Brexit concerns and competition from apprenticeships. European Union students represent only 7% of student numbers, and recent rhetoric on immigration suggests the potential for demand from places such as the USA, China and India could mitigate any fall in EU student demand. This is evidenced in the fact that the number of Chinese students at UK universities has soared by 34% in the last five years. Since 2014/15 the number of Chinese students in the UK has risen from 89,540 to 120,385.

Steady demand and a shortage of beds will allow for good occupancy rates and yields for existing units.
