On time. Always full. High returns

Vita Student Manchester was an investment must-have. A newly constructed landmark on the city’s skyline, it’s a short walk to both the city centre and numerous universities – the perfect location to serve a 100,000-strong student market. The fact this location was in the centre of a new £750 million mixed-use development only heightened the appeal. Now, investors enjoy returns of over 9% per annum, with yields rising at double-digit pace.

The first-choice location

Select Property’s approach in the search for a PBSA location was simple: first choice was First Street. A brand new, £750 million place-making project offering Vita Student’s residents an immediate neighbourhood and ease of access to Manchester’s universities and city centre. It doesn’t matter if it’s a shopping trip on Deansgate, a lecture at Whitworth Hall or a night in Castlefield. It’s all a short walk away.

The heart of Manchester’s student life

Not a week passes without our students enjoying a social event. The 10-strong residence team know exactly when to add extra excitement or relieve the tension of exam time.

Other students in the city always want to see what the excitement is all about and the residence reaches the 100% tenancy mark earlier and earlier every year.

An award-winner

After just its first year of operation, Vita Student Manchester was judged to be the finest accommodation in the city by Manchester’s 100,000 students. The Private Halls of the Year win means Vita Student is officially students’ preferred accommodation option. The judges said “Vita Student went the extra mile to ensure [residents] felt welcome and to build a sense of community”.
