The purpose built sector

The purpose-built sector

  • An estimated 450,000 bed spaces in the sector

  • 404,000 covered by three Codes of Standards:

    • Two run by ANUK/Unipol

    • One run by UUK

  • Increasing financial pressure on institutions resulting in rapidly rising rents

  • Traditionally largely owned and run by institutions

  • Now a more complex picture with private providers’ market share growing

  • Recent fall in student numbers means that there is now an oversupply in some areas

  • However, as yet, there has been little competition on price


Accommodation costs survey

Accommodation Costs Survey

  • Research conducted every 2 – 3 years by NUS and Unipol

  • Aimed at institutions and private providers of purpose-built student accommodation (or halls of residence)

  • This year’s survey covered around 85 per cent of bed spaces

  • There have been huge changes in recent years to:

    • The level of rent charged

    • The types of room on offer

    • Who is providing these rooms
