Why Invest in Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) ?

The student sector is now growing faster than ever and according to the Knight Frank Student Report 2014,  will continue to outstrip traditional asset classes into 2014. 

This is the perfect time to take advantage of current investment conditions as rental growth in the sector has increased every year since the downturn and demand for student accommodation in all core university cities and towns continues to outstrip supply, especially in the boutique/hotel style PBSA which is set to continue this upward trajectory for at least the next 5 years.

The Location

Leeds has recently topped a list of university towns and cities that could benefit from more purpose built student accommodation. With 54,857 full time students in higher education and only 13,147 on campus student rooms, the city is struggling to offer the high quality accommodation that is being demanded by a new generation of consumer student. 


University of Leeds, part of the Russell group of universities representing 24 leading UK universities, can only provide accommodation to just 24% of full time students leaving investors perfectly placed to take advantage of this shortage in student accommodation. 


Asquith House is within 5 - 10 minute's walking time of University of Leeds, Leeds Metropolitan University and Leeds College of Art,  20 minute's walk from Leeds City College and Leeds College of Music, with a host of amenities such as Leeds Opera House Theatre, Central Library and the Shopping Quarter in between.


Being so close to both main university campuses, students will benefit from living and studying within a thriving student hub with an abundance of cafés, bars, restaurants and shops!
