Student accommodation continues to attract further investment as more than third of landlords are planning to expand their student portfolios over the next 18 months, according to a new survey.

The research commissioned by estate agency Mistoria Group has found that 43% of landlords surveyed are planning to purchase between two and three new student properties over the next 18 months.


Moreover, figures also show that among all student property investors in the UK, 50% are located in the South of the UK, 30% are located overseas and 20% are located in the Midlands and the North.


When assessing investors’ opinions on the student property market, the survey found that 50% of investors in the sector believe that the yields and returns offered by the student property asset class cannot be matched by any other type of asset.


The figures highlight the increasing attractiveness of the UK’s student property market to both British and Overseas investors, which is fuelled by a chronic undersupply of student properties and a rise in student numbers.


Following from a record ammount of investment in 2015, the student market continues to grow. Indeed, the number of purpose-built beds registered to be built in 2016 was found to be at the highest ever recorded level.
