    Given the high fees to students and huge number of student buildings that have been completed - is student housing still a good place to invest?

    There will always be more students every year and if you can compete with on-campus dorm rooms, I do not see why not. Just offer things that you know they will need such as free wi-fi.

    Yes, and it will always be. If we are talking about Britain. Its town’s and cities are currently being transformed by growing student populations.
  4. I totally agree, student accommodation in the UK has improved dramatically over the last 20 or 30 years. Gone are the basic student accommodation options of years gone by in favour of multiple occupancy buildings with an array of shared facilities.

    The UK student property market has been extremely strong in recent times. When you bear in mind the extra capital pouring into the further education system it is difficult to see anything but further growth in demand in the longer term.

    There is always pressure for the government to invest more and more in education so I think student accommodation will be a great investment for many years to come. Also, the more people in further education the fewer people on the unemployed list - these politicians can be a little sneaky :)

    Which are the best cities for student accommodation investment in the UK? The ones that spring to mind for me are Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and St Andrews in Scotland.

    It depends on totally your decision and if you want to do that then you should definitely do that.

    The UK has a large number of high quality universities and other types of further education. These attract students from other parts of the UK as well as overseas. If you pick the right city, the right area and the right type of property, you can create significant long-term cash flow.

    The uk's student property has increased significantly, there are always going to be universities therefore students will always need accommodation. In my opinion its a good idea to invest as it will always be in demand and will always make a profit

    In some ways student accommodation could be seen as a hedge against an economic downturn?

    If the UK economy does take a wobble after Brexit it will be interesting to see how the student accommodation market holds up. Personally I agree with you but we shall see.
