Purpose Built Student Accommodation has moved out of the shadow of “alternative” real estate, and is forming a key component of investor allocations to operational real estate across the globe. Driven by its defensive characteristics i.e. not correlated to wider economic movements, as well as compelling demand and supply imbalances, demand for student accommodation investments across European educational hubs has grown substantially in the last few years.

While new student housing is being built to accommodate a growing student population, it is not happening fast enough, and the quality of product is not being updated for the changing needs of today’s student. As a result, Purpose Built Student Accommodation has outperformed other real estate sectors in the US and UK, and is expected to have the same projection across wider Europe.
