The appetite for high specification and high-quality student housing continues to grow across the UK. We are at the forefront of this expanding sector, delivering major projects that meet the needs of today’s diverse student population.
To date, we have delivered
Extending our residential expertise to support younger generations, we have delivered a vast range of student accommodation developments. In delivering these schemes, we work with our educational and private accommodation clients to provide students and young adults with exciting places to live that suit their budget and lifestyle needs. We collaborate with leading universities to manage complex development processes, often involving multiple stakeholders. Our student developments deliver real change and act as catalysts for future investment.
We also purchase existing accommodation, implementing an extensive refurbishment program to improve the quality and energy performance of the buildings. The years of experience and unrivalled knowledge of the sector that we have means that we are comfortable taking the development risk, securing the capital to finance the project, guarantee its delivery and take the demand risk that students will want live there for the long-term future.
We have a proven history of providing tailored accommodation solutions for universities through long-term partnerships. Our comprehensive model covers design, construction, financing, and operations, ensuring success throughout the project’s lifecycle. Our strong financial backing and partnership approach allow universities to redirect funds to academic improvements, transferring risk and costs to us.

Through these residences, we have been able to enhance our approach to modular and prefabricated construction, including using our bespoke modular factory to deliver a 100% modular student accommodation scheme in Canterbury.

These schemes have also allowed us to explore the benefits of standardisation, particularly through using bathroom pods and prefabricated items. Using our experience of embedding such modern building solutions throughout student accommodation, we have been able to venture more easily into embedding such solutions throughout our other residential schemes, delivering time, quality, and cost benefits to our wider client network.
Building sustainable student spaces is at the core of our approach and many of our student accommodation projects deliver superior BREEAM ratings and top energy performance certificates.
