Student Accommodation

Investment in the student accommodation sector is witnessing record levels of investment. In 2014 £2.45bn of student assets were traded, a 23% increase on 2013. The trend is set to continue and in the first half of 2015 £3.8bn had already been invested, a record high that is already 70% above 2013.
