The latest edition of BONARD’s highly-anticipated Student Housing Annual Report captures the current state of the industry and provides the most comprehensive overview of the Student Housing market.

Purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) is an age-determined asset class. Students need to study at a certain age, and the ongoing pandemic has proved that they prefer studying on site over online. After a number of students deferred their studies in 2020, the demand for both domestic and international studies rose again in 2021. With occupancy levels approaching 100% in many study destinations by the end of 2021, the defensive and counter-cyclical nature of the PBSA asset class has yet again been confirmed.
