About Sheffield

Sheffield has a sizeable student population and was recently crowned the best city for graduates. With affordable rents and a pint of beer costing on average £2.70, it is no surprise the younger generation are flocking to the city to study. The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam boasts over 63,000 students between them, so there is lots of demand for good quality rooms in prime locations. Oakwood proximity to both campuses will set it in good stead to achieve excellent occupancy levels.

Why Invest in Student Accommodation?

A lot of investors are attracted to the idea of student property due to its easy maintenance. Developments are often fully managed, which is ideal for the overseas investor or busy individual who does not have the time to oversee its day-to-day running. These types of investments are becoming more and more popular, and Knight Frank estimates the purpose-built student accommodation market to be worth £46bn. The largest transaction was the purchase by the property arm of Temasek of a portfolio of 25 student buildings in various cities including London and Manchester. Hiew Yoon Khong, chief executive of Mapletree, commented "Student accommodation is a big business and relatively low risk."

Students are evidently willing to pay for good quality housing, which allows investors to achieve excellent yields. According to research by Knight Frank, over a fifth of students are willing to pay over £160 per week if the facilities impress them. Features most discerning students seek out include having an en-suite bathroom and a range of communal spaces both of which Oakwood has.
