The Return To University 
    An Overview And Outlook For The UK PBSA Sector

    Webinar | The Return To University - An Overview And Outlook For The UK PBSA Sector

    As the new academic year gets underway in the UK, we would like to keep you updated on the impact the pandemic is having on university life and what it means for the UK purpose-built student accommodation sector (“PBSA”).  Following our previous webinar in June on PBSA (click here to watch it), we will welcome a panel of PBSA experts for a lively discussion exploring the current state of the UK PBSA market. What impact has the pandemic had on student applications from the UK and overseas? How have universities and accommodation operators adapted to the new normal?

    What Can You Expect To Learn From This Webinar?

    • The impact on transaction volumes, yields and values
    • Do the long-term fundamentals of the sector remain, and can PBSA still be considered resilient in times of crisis?
    • What lies ahead post-pandemic
    • A Q&A with our panel of experienced investors and operators
    The purpose of the webinar is to present information on an asset class that might be considered appropriate for direct investment.
