Development Advisory

Campus UK Advisory provides senior management development resource to property companies, new capital, contractors and developers.

One of our particular skills is to provide our clients with the necessary track record and credibility to enter the student accommodation sector. We can provide advice and support on capital raising, strategic direction, pipeline management and the whole-life development process.

In terms of project specific involvement we are engaged in the identification of sites, management of design and professional teams, funding, project performance, sales and marketing, stakeholder relations, operational implementation, stabilisation and exit.

Whilst many of our development clients and partners engage us from the outset of the development process, others instruct us to advise on specific elements of a project or portfolio.

Investment Advisory

Clients seek our expertise in the course of student accommodation investment purchases, disposals and funding arrangements.

Our deep knowledge and understanding of the macro and micro drivers of value enable clients to secure maximum advantage when investing in or exiting the sector.

Increasingly we are involved in capital market solutions introducing institutional capital to private and university teams.

We value our long-standing relationships with existing investors and operators whilst supporting and nurturing new entrants and capital.

Asset Management

We provide and execute asset management, operational and rationalisation strategies in support of investors, developers, universities and administrators.

Our understanding of every facet of a student accommodation investment allows us to defend and add value through active asset management and positioning.

We pay critical attention to all aspects including the underlying market characteristics to the design, mix, build, rental pricing and operation and advise how value can be added in each area.

As part of our role we co-ordinate other disciplines and advisers and provide support to on-site operational teams to optimise service delivery, operations and budgets.

Working with third party stakeholders including universities, our aim is to optimise occupancy and net revenues.
