Should Landlords That Let to EU Students be Concerned About Brexit?

Arlington Investors recently announced the acquisition of two student accommodation assets for £85.5m, one of the first major post-Brexit deals, which has seen Arlington's total portfolio in the sector grow to more than £500m and more than 7,800 beds.

The deal reflects the positioning of the UK student accommodation sector to weather the immediate turbulence caused by the UK vote to leave the EU and highlights the strong and growing demand from UK and international students for spaces at the country's higher education institutions.

The two properties, which offer a combined total of 951 beds, are located in London and Leeds. The asset in Leeds comprises 10 buildings and is leased to the University of Leeds; the London asset is direct-let to students across the capital's institutions.

George Shweiry, founder and chief executive at Arlington Advisors, commented: "We believe that the UK student accommodation sector is well positioned to weather the immediate turbulence caused by the UK vote to leave the EU.
