The Rise of Boutique Student Accommodation

Studentpodshop.com is dedicated to one of the UK’s premier asset classes in the buy-to-let market: purpose-built student accommodation. Being the first bespoke market place for student property investment re-sales, Studentpodshop.com has been created to facilitate the growing seller demand of those trying to release the equity in their student property investment.

During their time at university, students need a place to live. Traditionally, students used to live in university halls of residence, in so called student pods – single bedroom clusters containing only minimal furniture and a smaller single bed. Whilst some students still prefer the communal lifestyle offered by student pods, an ever-growing proportion nowadays favour luxurious purpose-built accommodation in the form of self-contained studio apartments. These are modern studios containing the likes of en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes, which offer students a hassle-free, boutique living experience during their time at university.

In this day and age, student property investments are known to gain their investors average NET returns of 8-10% and higher occupancy rates throughout the year, as universities struggle to meet the ever-increasing demand for student accommodation. Studentpodshop.com aims to help student property investors to diversify their portfolio in a unique and lucrative manner, as well as assisting existing investors to liquidate their current assets.

What is a student pod?

A pod is an individual unit within a student accommodation residence. The term 'pod' usually refers to a basic room containing a bed, desk, wash stand and wardrobe, but here at studentpodshop.com we use it as a generic term that encompasses all units including en-suites and studios.
