Stevenson, Richard; Askham, Phil (2011)
Publisher: Sheffield Hallam University
Languages: English
Types: Article
The supply of Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) both nationally and within Sheffield, has increased considerably over the last decade and has played an\ud important role in meeting the demands of both students and the Universities.\ud This paper examines the current dynamics of the PBSA market in Sheffield, the effect that such accommodation has had upon the remainder of the city’s student accommodation, and the extent which the supply and demand may fluctuate in the\ud future, especially in the face of recent changes made to the higher education sector. These questions were explored through interviews with PBSA providers, student\ud landlords/agents, along with representatives from both Sheffield Universities as well as Sheffield City Council.\ud The paper concludes that PBSA has had a substantial impact upon the student accommodation market in Sheffield. Whilst facilitating University growth it has also benefited both the student and landlord. However, much uncertainty hangs over the future of student demand in light of increasing University fees, which could have major implications for both PBSA providers and private landlords.
