Vita Student at Telephone House Overview

Delivering more than 350 premium properties in one of the UK’s most prominent university cities, this £35 million project represents Vita Student’s most significant project to date.

The project is located at the very heart of Sheffield, a major centre for UK university education that plays host to over 63,000 students, 11,000 of which are from overseas. It is a city with a clear, proven demand for purpose-built student property, but until now has failed to provide the ‘superior student living’ that is Vita Student’s trademark.

The most exciting element of Telephone House’s location is its proximity to both the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. Minutes’ walk from both institutions, Telephone House not only represents Sheffield’s finest student residences, but it is the only development located this close to both universities.

Luxury Living

A complete renovation of what used to be BT’s 14 storey regional headquarters, Vita Student at Telephone House is being developed into luxury apartments designed for students with discerning tastes. Residents can expect to find an en-suite shower room, fully integrated kitchen and flat screen smart TV, alongside other high-spec fixtures and fittings. These factors, together with the fact that the development is in a prime location near two prestigious universities, means it will experience extremely high demand from students, subsequently creating high returns for investors.

Sheffield is home to more than 52,000 domestic students and 11,000 international students across two prestigious universities. 45,000 of Sheffield’s student population doesn’t have access to purpose-built student property and the rapidly growing demand for luxury accommodation has brought to light the city’s lack of stock.

Vita Student at Telephone House is situated directly in-between both Sheffield Hallam and the University of Sheffield, and is a five minutes’ walk from both institutions. It is this prime location which makes it so attractive for investors and students alike.

No other student property in the city is available this close to both universities, with most others situated on the outskirts of town. It is for this reason that the location of Vita Student at Telephone house is perfect for investors as it will ensure the development is popular with students.
