Canterbury Hall, Preston has enjoyed nearly two years of being operational & tenanted.
An opportunity for investors has presented itself with apartment 205, a 23m2 studio, coming back on the market at this successful PBSA scheme.
Enquiries and bookings have been steady and despite the general uncertainty surrounding university openings and on-line/blended learning, the bookings at the scheme to date are actually up compared to the same time last year.
No offer incentives such as lowering rents or referrals to attract students have been warranted and as of the 7th July 2020 the occupancy for 2020/21 academic year stood at 87% booked and well on course for full occupancy.
Canterbury Hall is purpose-built student accommodation at its best, offering assured income until Q3 2023, this is an excellent secure investment opportunity. With a fantastic location right next to the UCLan campus, this development is the perfect solution for students looking for independent living in a student environment.
