Vita Student Bristol
Few university cities experience such sustained demand from students around the world quite like Bristol. 8.13 applicants per place make the University of Bristol one of the most popular institutions in the country. This huge appeal for education naturally equates to a need for accommodation. But just as the city’s universities struggle to accommodate all applicants, Bristol’s housing stock similarly doesn’t have enough supply to meet demand. And this clearly underlines the city’s investment potential.
Bristol is a hub of academia, firmly established as one of the UK’s finest university cities. 50,000 students are educated across two institutions each year. The University of Bristol is currently ranked 15th in the UK and 37th on the 2015 QS World University Rankings for academic excellence. Investment to the tune of £108.8 million in 2014 will help Bristol to continue to provide world-class facilities for its students.
This global recognition creates competition. Bristol receives among the highest number of student applications in the country. 8.13 applicants vie for each place at the University of Bristol. And for those that succeed in securing a place, further competition is faced when they come to finding somewhere to live. Demand for student accommodation is 3.8 times higher than supply. With PBSA scarce, stock that does exist carries clear rental premiums. These fundamental investment factors therefore underpin any student property investment in Bristol.
Bristol is the most populous city in the south-west of England, and the region’s largest employer. Its popularity as a place to live and work is mirrored in the performance of the city’s property market. Bristol was home to the UK’s two highest capital appreciating postcodes in 2014, while price growth since the turn of the decade currently stands at 13.6%. Bristol has one of the highest performing real estate markets in the UK, with a track record of driving returns for investors.
