More than £5bn has been invested in the student accommodation sector over the past two years according to a new report.

The research, conducted by Savills, found that these figures could be followed by another record breaking year as investment in student accommodation in 2014 could reach as much as £2.5bn.


January to April 2014 has seen a great deal of activity in the student sector, with total investment reaching £950m already so far this year.


With £1.4 billion worth of transactions already in progress, the report predicts that the student market sector could generate up to £2.5 billion in transactions before the close of the year.


The rise of the student market has continued over the past two years, with an increasing number of purchasers looking towards this formerly niche investment class.


The 2013 Savills Student Report highlighted the undersupply of student accommodation within the UK, as well as the possibility for 66,000 new rooms to be built across England and Wales, with this year’s report increasing that estimate by a further 11,000 rooms.
