Student Living - Theory into Practice.
Academy Property Consultants specialises in delivering student accommodation projects that meet the needs of our customers:

Students and Parents

We aim to provide a student development and management service experience that is second to none. Academy works with all stakeholders to promote and develop quality living and studying places where students can enjoy living and learning.

Academy can draw on an enviable track record in delivering student accommodation developments that meet the various needs of our customers. From acquisition to asset management. Academy will put theory into practice and create quality living and learning environments where students, parents, universities and investors can be assured that their aspirations are met or exceeded.

All Academy student residences are promoted in partnerships that work - with landowners, universities, local communities, contractors and investors. Academy aims as part of its remit to raise standards in the student subsector of the Private Rented Sector where both the quality of property and service standards can often be variable. Academy student living projects contribute to urban and economic regeneration as they are promoted on brownfield land and invariably breathe fresh new life into local economies. Academy halls of residence also often free up existing housing stock reducing so called studentification with that housing being used to house local people.

Academy student residences have excellent locations on or close to main university campuses; are secure and purpose built with attractive exteriors and welcoming comfortable interiors. Academy projects also boast state of the art broadband services and low carbon footprints - encouraging travel by foot, cycle or public transport - in place of the car.

If you want to put your student halls of residence theories into practice - call on the student accommodation experts at Academy Property Consultants.
