The US and UK are the most mature student housing markets, and continue to dominate global investment deals, but new stock developed now in Europe and Australia paves the way for institutional investment in the future, according to a recent Savills report.

Yields

The US market stands out as particularly high-yielding for such a mature market. We expect yields to move in as institutional involvement increases, the sector matures and perceived risk diminishes. Although they are less developed markets, there is also potential for further downward yield shift in Australia and Spain over coming years. Whether Germany, the UK and France are fully valued at 3.75%-4.5% will depend on how much scope there is for rental growth in their main university cities. The gap between residential and student housing yields remain, although we expect it to narrow.
