Investors & Asset Managers

We work with real estate investors to help them understand and improve their student accommodation operations. We help to select and oversee the 3rd party or JV operating partners through tried and tested consultancy services. We also undertake feasibility studies and acquisition appraisals. 

Student Housing Operators

We know what it takes to run a successful student accommodation operator. It's not easy to keep students happy, maximise revenue, operate efficiently, improve your reputation and deliver investor returns. Through our reviews and consultancy we partner with operators to help them achieve short and long term goals. 


We advise universities and colleges worldwide on operational management and strategy for their purpose built student accommodation both on and off campus. We advise on nominations agreements and undertake reviews of student accommodation strategy working alongside estates and accommodation services.

From energy and broadband providers to property management software systems and end of tenancy cleaning. We act as procurement advisors to the PBSA industry and help operators and developers to implement innovative management and procurement strategies. 

Real Estate Agencies  

We work with Student Housing Agencies large and small to advise on a range of topics. We consult on PBSA feasibility studies, mobilisation and operational planning. We also analyse and assess operator pitches for third party PBSA management contracts. 


We have worked with developers large and small to plan, build and mobilise assets from 60 to 1000+ beds. We help developers with feasibility studies, community planning support, design, operator selection, interim management, university relations, marketing and sales.
