Private residential halls for students continue to be popular

Posted on April 4, 2016 by kristine in Private Halls, Student Halls

There’s no doubt that private residential halls for students continue to be popular but they are also growing as sound investments for property developers too.

Here at we are always pleased to see news reports of the facilities and quality of private halls for students that are available and we are also impressed when developers buy established properties with ideas to develop them further.

That’s the case with a private residential halls complex in Manchester which has six separate blocks for accommodation spread across 3.5 acres.

Despite being located close to the University of Manchester as well as Manchester Metropolitan University, the 561 bed private halls have lots of space for students to enjoy.

Indeed, the properties themselves are also impressive and consist of two, three and four-bedroom apartments and nine three-bedroom duplexes.

The bedrooms are larger than many people would expect and the apartments come with family-size bathrooms and fully fitted kitchens.

Students looking for private residential halls

The gardens have also been landscaped and, this is a big attraction for many students who are looking for private residential halls, there are also 197 car parking spaces.

Now the new owners are looking to upgrade the accommodation which was built in 2009 to provide even more quality accommodation for students in what is the UK’s third largest population of full-time students.

Among the developments being considered is to create a purpose-built student hub and improve further the communal facilities in the private residential halls for students.

We have regularly carried stories about how impressive most modern private halls for students are today which bear little or no resemblance to the grotty student accommodation of years gone by.

However, with growing numbers of developers looking to build or convert properties, here is one developer who wants to build on an established success story to create not only more bedrooms for students but make their private residential halls more attractive too.

Why students are opting to live in private residential halls

There’s a wide range of reasons why students are opting to live in private residential halls and among them is the better security provision, on-site maintenance staff and manned reception desks. Indeed, the safe and secure environment also helps bolster a student’s social life and help them focus on their studies.

Private residential halls for students will contribute to grow in popularity and, as we are increasingly seeing, developers are looking to offer even better and more impressive properties for students to live in.
