Student accommodation projects

Our team has extensive involvement in the Student Accommodation Sector. This is a growing and diverse market with schemes varying from those promoted and controlled by the relevant University or Further Education establishment through to those promoted as purely commercial operations in areas where established operators see opportunities. The issues arising from these models are varied and complex.

Our team has been involved in schemes using a variety of models and funding structures and have dealt with the full range of key issues including:

  • Levels of demand risk taken by universities
  • Balance sheet treatment and structures
  • Facilities management service scoping
  • Funding structures and lender requirements
  • Nomination agreements

Our team has advised universities, investors and facilities management contractors in relation to their interests in a variety of student accommodation projects throughout the UK.
