As discussed in the second part of our series of publications on student accommodation, the building stock of privately operated student accommodation in the 30 largest university cities has doubled to around 25,000 places over the last five years. Almost 20,000 further places are currently under construction or in planning. The majority of apartments completed in recent years and those that will be added over the coming years have one thing in common. They are fully furnished one-bedroom apartments fitted out to a high standard. And that, literally, has its price.
