Student Accommodation as an asset class is somewhat immature compared with markets globally. However, interest in the sector is beginning to increase as lessons learnt and experienced gained from more mature global markets, such as USA, UK and mainland Europe ripple their way to Australia.
It is clear to see why the sector is of interest to global and domestic investors alike. Namely full time students enrolled at Australian Universities have increased every year since 2001, by an average of 4.7%, fuelling demand for associated accommodation.
