student numbers

With a student population of over 38 000, Preston has developed a reputation as a prevalent student scene. As well as its established institution University of Central Lancashire, Preston boasts a thriving nightlife scene.  Along with some attractive graduate roles in the many high-profile businesses located in the city. 


Student accommodation has been a fast-growing avenue of property investment that a lot of new and experienced investors have had success with.  In the UK specifically, student accommodation has seen growth over all other forms of investment in the commercial sector for the past 3 years.  Expectations are that it will continue to thrive.

Despite the rising university tuition fees, there is always going to be a demand for student accommodation, due to the popularity of higher education.  The ever-present issue with space and lack of housing in the UK is going to remain an issue. Student accommodation is an asset that can be very valuable and useful for both the student tenant and the investor.

The UK has also proven an attractive destination for overseas students. This factor – in addition to the lack of purpose-built accommodation to meet the rising demand – has made student accommodation property investment a very worthwhile and profitable stream for any property investor.
