The student housing market has come of age and is no longer a specialist or alternative investment class. Record levels of institutional investor activity are testament to its global potential as a mainstream real estate asset and we now anticipate that it will become increasingly well established in a variety of countries.
The opportunities for the pioneers in this sector to expand have never been greater and, in this report, we have identified new areas for activity in Europe, Australia and the Middle East. We have also identified potential pitfalls and threats and, building on last year’s research, have emphasised the necessity to look at local markets rather than national ones and pay attention to local supply and demand factors.
