The student market in Plymouth

The City of Plymouth hosts three major Higher Education Institutes which include Plymouth University, the University of St Mark and St John, and Plymouth College of Art. With around 30,000 students in Plymouth, the City has a high rate of graduate employment and has recently invested more than £150 million in its estate and facilities to enhance the student experience.

Plymouth University is the largest Higher Education Institute in the City and makes the most significant contribution to Plymouth’s student population. It has a thriving international community of 3,000 students from over 100 countries which creates high-demand for purpose-built student accommodation in and around the City.

Students come to Plymouth for the exciting cultural activities, fun nightlife and the excellent education. Just a few steps away from campus is one of the largest shopping centres in the South West, Drake’s Circus. In addition to this is the Theatre Royal Plymouth, four cinemas and a range of exciting nightclubs.

Invest in Plymouth & the South-West

Known as ‘Britain’s Ocean City’, few cities can rival Plymouths rich seafaring heritage, its vibrant culture and stunning waterfront. One of the UK’s favourite coastal cities, Plymouth is thriving with culture, historical significance and natural surroundings. Set in the picturesque county of Devon, it is becoming an increasingly popular place to live, study and work. This in turn makes the port city an attractive prospect to property investors.

Plymouth benefits from a diversified tourism sector that feeds off the city’s waterfront area. Attractions, shopping and sightseeing opportunities are all key drivers in the rising city, which welcomes an impressive five million visitors each year and shares a tourism spend of £316m. The South-West has been a very strong area for property investment over the past couple of years and has a four-year forecast of nearly 30% growth (almost 8% per annum). Plymouth came in at number 1 from the ‘Property Reporter’ as receiving the highest yields in the country for student investment.

Why invest in ?

Student Accommodation

The UK student property market has grown significantly in recent years, with the number of students coming to study in the UK increasing each year. Rising student numbers is driving the demand for purpose-built student accommodation in an undersupplied market, which has created a number of opportunities for investors.

UK student property investment has become one of the leading assets with investors, due to high yields and low entry prices. Property specialists Savills have reported that £4.3 billion has been invested into purpose-built student accommodation in recent years, with institutions investing in a total of 51,150 units across popular student locations.

Moving away from the traditional HMO’s (Houses of Multiple Occupants), developers are building high-specification private halls, with students willing to pay a premium to reside in them, therefore creating the perfect investment opportunity for investors.

The Guardian

“Some of the world’s richest people and sovereign wealth funds are turning their attention to student housing, with the increasingly luxurious and expensive purpose-built accommodation becoming regarded as a must-have part of their investment portfolio.”


“Maybe it is no wonder there are so many new student flats being built in Plymouth the city has been revealed as the most profitable place to invest in purpose build accommodation for university types. New data from specialist online buy-to-let agency yieldit has named Plymouth as the top location for landlords looking to invest in purpose-built student flats anywhere in the UK.”

The Herald

“And then there is the student market. Plymouth sits alongside Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Glasgow, and Cardiff - all university strongholds with large numbers of student looking for affordable accommodation.”
