You see the opportunities.
We connect the dots.
Regardless of where they’re from, people will always choose to pursue education as a means to improve their life. This is true now more than ever.
Education prevails through economic cycles; we have seen this consistently over time with Covid providing the biggest test for many sectors in recent years. Already resilient, student housing proved itself to be a stable sector in times of uncertainty, outperforming other traditional markets.
Global investment continues to break annual records as demand for exposure increases. Now, the global student living sector is primed for the next phase of growth, and is attracting the world’s leading institutional capital investors and debt providers.
Appetite for the in-person university experience continues to grow. Student enrolment figures are supported by increasing demand for education. And the number of international students looking to study in the US and Europe continues to increase.
There is a continuous need for innovation and growth to cater to student expectations and respond to gaps in the market. And we are uniquely positioned to meet this demand.
Growth you can depend on. dot.
