Yields Achieved Through Student Accommodation Investments

Students are evidently willing to pay for good quality housing, which allows investors to achieve excellent yields. According to research by Knight Frank, over a fifth of students are willing to pay over £160 per week if the facilities impress them. Features most discerning students seek out include having an en-suite bathroom and a range of communal spaces – both of which #47 has.

Purpose-Built Student Accommodation a “buoyant asset”

Demand for units in purpose-built student accommodation developments has been on the rise for the last decade or so. According to Knight Frank, the number of students living in these sorts of accommodation arrangements has more than doubled since 2007 – 2014/2015, from 34,000 – 72,000. It is partly attributed to the increase in tuition fees, which has led students to have higher expectations of what their accommodation should be like.
