Key points include:

 

-COVID-19 has presented obstacles across the real estate industry, and purpose built student accomodation (PBSA) has not been immune

-Students have been resilient in the face of these challenges, and demand for university places across the UK is now higher than 2019

-This demand will support PBSA as we move into the next academic year

-Although investment into the sector stalled throughout lockdown, demand remains strong with an estimated £750m - £1bn worth of deals currently in the pipeline
