The profitability of the UK student accommodation market is set to continue according to new figures.

A new report from Knight Frank forecasts that student property is set to experience a 9.2% increase in rental return over the course of the next year.


The predictions on what the company has described as one of the “most successful real estate asset classes” follows an increased demand for student accommodation up and down the UK, where mainly of the major university towns and cities are structurally undersupplied.


The findings estimate that returns in the capital will increase by 0.4%, part of the wider increase in rents predicted to stand at 3% beginning in September.


With further opportunities to be found outside of London, the regions offer purchasers an excellent opportunity for growth in this increasingly mainstream asset class, as rental growth continues across university towns in the UK.


In its student report last year, Knight Frank highlighted student accommodation as an area offering potential for growth having outperformed every other commercial property asset class last year.
