- Unite bookings for 2021/2022 academic year well ahead of Empiric Student Property
- Demand from international students has been more subdued
A rise in applications to join UK universities in September offers hope for student landlords. For Unite (UTG), that has been reflected in bookings for 2021/22, which have risen to 66 per cent from 57 per cent in January. Management is expecting a return to an occupancy rate of 95-98 per cent and rental growth of between 2 and 3 per cent for the academic year.
