Sheffield Student Accommodation Demand
With a total student population of more than 55,000, Sheffield recently topped a list of university towns and cities that could benefit from more purpose built student accommodation.
The universities in Sheffield are only able to provide university owned accommodation to a relatively small proportion of students. With just 11,369 bedrooms available to more than 46,890 full time students, a massive 76% are left looking for accommodation in the private sector or living at home.
This demonstrates a clear opportunity for the provision of purpose-built student accommodation within the city, particularly for Sheffield’s expanding international student population, who are driving the demand for luxury student rentals.
