Student housing continued its record growth last year, recording over €9bn across 105 international transactions, excluding the US, according to new research published by market research and advisory firm BONARD. As student numbers are growing faster than supply, the asset class remains a top-4 sector prospect for investments in 2020.

To date, the sector has seen the involvement of over 700 companies. In continental Europe and UK alone, 142 PBSA projects and 43,655 beds were due for completion in 2019. ‘The student housing asset class has been maturing to a stage of transparency, returns and liquidity that offer sufficient security and confidence for many private and institutional investors,’ says Samuel Vetrak, CEO of BONARD.
