Leading provider expands luxury UK student housing offering with 11 new openings for 2016

  • Changing student accommodation market sees growing demand for luxury properties
  • Leading provider, Collegiate AC, to launch 11 new projects in 2016 to existing and new cities
  • New facilities to include ‘VIP Bars’ and ‘Sky Lounges’

With the world of higher education changing, so too are the needs of the student demographic, and a major part of this is the sector’s housing landscape. Whilst university ‘digs’ were once the epitome of the dank and dilapidated, today’s birth of the modern student marks a new era that demands a very different property solution.

As the leading provider of luxury student properties in the UK, Collegiate AC boasts the greatest number of well-appointed student properties in the country, and the company’s announcement of a huge expansion to their offering marks a turning point for the industry.

The sizable addition of ten new properties to its already ample portfolio for 2016 reveals a growing demand for high-end student rental properties, expected to continue on an upward trajectory in the New Year.

Indicative of an evolving student accommodation market that is moving more and more towards properties that provide not simply a place to call home, but moreover an enhanced lifestyle, facilities in this new breed of student property support a well-rounded student experience. This extends to study, extra-curricular activities and downtime in equal measures, alongside the addition of ergonomic interiors and beautiful surrounds, making these student properties homes to be proud of.

Collegiate AC are expanding their offering in some of the major university cities that they are already prevalent in – Cardiff, Exeter, Reading, Plymouth, London, Southampton, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow – with new projects launched to answer the impressive demand for their properties that provide ‘Student living. Just better.’ Alongside this, Collegiate AC projects will also be launching for September 2016 in new university cities: Newcastle, Derby, Lincoln and Dundee.

All properties will provide Collegiate AC’s signature blend of excellent facilities and stunning interiors, from on-site gyms to private cinemas, luxury lounges to work rooms, private dining rooms to concierge services, with certain properties even boasting new additions not seen before in Collegiate AC properties. These include the inclusion of a ‘VIP Bar’ in Windsor House in Cardiff and Plummer House in Newcastle, the ‘Sky Lounge’ in Woodside House, Glasgow, and the flexible ‘Social Hub’ space offered by Roman House in Derby.

Heriberto Cuanalo, CEO of Collegiate AC, expresses their excitement about the year ahead,

“Following on from a tremendous 2015 in which we welcomed more students than ever before to our luxury properties, we are anticipating a successful 2016 with the launch of our new sites. As we welcome in the New Year, we are proud to be at the leading edge of the shake up in the student accommodation market and will continue to aim for the very best with our innovative approach to the sector.”

With demand for the company’s particular brand of student accommodation never higher, Collegiate AC has also opened a new regional office in Bristol which, when combined with a base in Edinburgh and its HQ in Oxfordshire, ensures that they have a practical structure from which to pursue their growth strategy throughout the UK in coming years.
