The Future of Student Accommodation; Sponsored by Brand Vista

Wednesday, 9th September 2020 0930hrs – 1130hrs

This webinar will focus on the development activity in the student accommodation sector.

The student accommodation sector was undergoing significant growth prior to the current period, and as the UK emerges from lockdown we will look to the future by exploring upcoming plans to adapt and grow and the multi-million pound projects that will allow the industry to fight back.

This session will bring together top level leaders from the sector to talk about their organisation’s plans moving forward including how they’re planning to invest and grow, steps they have taken to adapt to the current situation and a thought leadership discussion on how the sector can get back to full strength.

Speakers for this event include:

  • Prime Student Living – a leading student accommodation and management company, providing nearly 3,000 rooms for students in 15 properties across 11 leading university cities in the UK and Germany. Joanne will discuss their plans for further growth, as well as how the last few months have led them to adapt to ensure they continue to provide the best possible service to the students who make a Prime Student Living Property their home.
  • Maslow Capital – is a leading provider of real estate development finance and are particularly active in the student accommodation sector, having funded the development of 2,700 beds in the last three years including projects in Coventry, Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow. Sky will discuss how they are looking to resume lending after the Covid-19 lockdown, what makes a successful PBSA development and how they see the sector moving forward in the coming months. He will also give exclusive intel about two, yet to be announced, student accommodation projects that they have in the pipeline.
  • Unite Students – are the leading developer and provider of student accommodation in the UK, with homes for 74,000 students across 27 cities. They have a massive development pipeline involving developments in London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Bristol that will provide another 5,000 beds. £300 million was recently raised to help kickstart work on these projects and Matthew will discuss how they intend to progress over the coming months, as well as the steps they are taking to ensure their accommodation continues to meet the needs of students.
