The four largest student accommodation operators have reported that even with substantial development in the sector the vast majority of students do not have the option of a privately operated room.

Rental market
Student Halls are an asset class that rarely become available to individual investors with universities tending to purchase units before they are offered to market and landlords not needing to sell due to the high yields. According to research by Knight Frank, rentals in this area remain robust with a recorded growth of 5% per annum over the last six years (compared to 0.6% for commercial property). Substantially higher growth was achieved in university towns over the past academic year. Demand for university places rises during
recessions and the proportion of students that are returning postgraduates has risen to 24%.

Preliminary figures for the coming academic year already show a significant increase in applications with UCAS reporting a 12% rise at its October deadline. The majority of key university towns showed 100% occupancy rate for the last academic year with private halls mainly targeting affluent domestic, overseas and mature students. The University of Manchester is the UK’s most popular university receiving 53,900 applications in 2009. With a booming market and high rental yields (typically 6 -10% gross) and a long standing management company in place, these are the perfect conditions to invest in a hands off, hassle free opportunity.
