Liverpool Student Accommodation Investments

Why invest in student property for sale in Liverpool?

Liverpool prides itself as being an innovative and exciting place for investment and business. It is a city with substantial economic assets and opportunities; a knowledge hub with unique learning centres; a destination city with impressive culture and a city with important sea and air connections to international markets.

Liverpool’s universities schools and colleges are internationally recognised and famous worldwide, drawing in over 50,000 full and part time students from both the UK and abroad. A substantial 12% of the city’s total population is made up of students, who are now looking for high quality accommodation with excellent facilities and a central location.

However, the demand far outstrips the supply. With around 44,000 full time students living and studying in Liverpool, it’s not surprising that there is a massive shortfall of quality student accommodation. In the city there are only about 9,500 student rooms available, meaning that there is only enough accommodation in the city for just 21% of students; this gap needs to be filled and investors are well placed to meet this shortfall.

These students usually have to live at home or find alternative accommodation in the private sector.

Other factors supporting investment in specialist student accommodation in Liverpool include:


With three world-class universities in its midst (all are internationally recognised and famous for their impact on industry, science and culture), Liverpool is home to over 50,000 students. On top of that, large quantities of international students relocate to the city, a figure of approximately 6,000 and predicted to rise in the coming years. 

Liverpool University itself is part of the elite 24-strong Russell Group of Universities, which consistently attract the most student applications, as well as the most foreign student applications.

Liverpool as a city

With its proud musical, sporting, and historical heritage, Liverpool is a thriving university city with a large and ever-increasing student intake every year.

Looking ahead, Liverpool has lots of development in and around the area with housing market renewal schemes, which is an on going 15-year project. There are also plans for a major overhaul of the Liverpool docks, bringing plenty more visitors in terms of tourism and job opportunities.
