Collegiate AC is leading the way in luxury purpose built student accommodation in the UK. New data reveals the demographics of their residents and exactly who is enjoying the superb facilities that the operator provides.
With first class sites located in 23 towns and cities across the UK, Collegiate AC is well established and according to new data collected by the company, UK residents, for the first time, are the number one occupants.
In the 2016/17 academic year 25% of all Collegiate AC student residents are British with Chinese and Thai students in second and third position respectively.
In comparison to Collegiate’s 2015 student nationality statistics, there has been a notable increase in British residents, from 23% to 26%.
Greek students have interestingly entered the top 5 for the first time in 2016/17, accounting for 3% of all Collegiate residents.
The top 5 resident nationalities at Collegiate AC for 2016/17 are as follows:
