A PROVEN INVESTMENT IN A PROVEN CITY

A city with a tenant waiting list for Vita Student properties. Home to the highest rental growth of any other UK university city.  A location that’s achieved 21% in average capital returns for our existing investors. Portswood is Vita Student’s 15th residence. But crucially, it becomes the brand’s second residence in the city of Southampton. A proven location for the brand leading the UK’s £165bn PBSA market.

A SECOND SITE IN A FIRST-CLASS LOCATION

Vita Student Portswood’s location enables the brand to better serve Southampton’s two universities. Our waiting list comprises students studying at both institutions. But Vita Student Portswood is ideally situated just 6 minutes’ walk from the University of Southampton, the university 45% of our current residents commute to. What’s more, it’s positioned at the heart of an area popular with students, but where PBSA providers find very hard to acquire scalable sites.

A MARKET DEMANDING MORE VITA STUDENT PROPERTY

Vita Student is already an overwhelming success in Southampton. We completely sold out the brand’s first development in the city, Richmond House, in 2014 in just over 20 weeks. It’s operated at 100% occupancy ever since. Rents have increased by 5% year-on-year. And resales investors are earning consistant capital appreciation per annum. With a growing tenant waiting list, Portswood will now continue to enhance the brand’s prestige among the students of Southampton.

A CITY OF RISING RENTS AND CAPITAL GROWTH

Student rents in Southampton are growing at twice the national average. Why? Because this is a city with an undersupply of 21,172 PBSA units, a number that could let out Portswood 45 times. Almost 1 in 5 of Southampton’s total population is a student – and they’re looking for a place to live. This shortfall also translates into long term investor growth. Property in Southampton is expected to see 43% capital growth by 2019, the highest in the UK.
