Investment Opportunities 'Still Exist' In Student Housing

By - Monday 11 July 2011

While some areas have reached maturity in terms of student housing, there are still plenty of investment opportunities available for those who choose the right location, it has been claimed. Marcus Roberts, director of student investment and development at Savills, explained that there are several things to take into consideration.

"We wouldn't say no to any city, but it is all about where the scheme is located and what sort of products you are trying to develop," he commented. Mr Roberts went on to recommend a shift away from houses in multiple occupation towards larger student property developments.

Liverpool could be one place that investors may want to keep their eye on, after figures published by UCAS revealed that both universities in the city have experienced a rise in the number of applicants. Meanwhile, director of Property Frontiers Ray Withers pointed out that there are over 40,000 students between the two institutions, but only around 6,500 accommodation spaces are provided by the universities each year.
