Student housing represents a potential 3 billion investment market
The student housing market in Italy indicates a potential industry of 50,000 beds, with room to double the current offer. The achievement of these objectives would involve investments of around €3 billion, which would trigger a rate of growth in supply at a rate three times greater than that observed over the last ten years.
These are some of the data of the First Observatory on new forms of residence for students, young people and workers, created by Camplus, the leading housing provider for university students in Italy, in collaboration with Scenari Immobiliari. In particular, the structured offer of beds in student rooms covers 8.6% of the demand for out-boarding of about 52 thousand beds.
According to a survey conducted by the Milan, Monza and Brianza Chamber of Commerce, in Italy there are 4,283 companies active in the alternative residential sector (students and retirement homes), + 6% in one year and + 129% in almost ten years. First is Rome with 394 companies, + 85% in almost ten years.
At the regional level, the first for number of workers is Lombardy, where the companies have 104,000 employees, + 7.5% in one year and + 114% in seven years. At national level, almost one in two companies, 41% of them, are female, 5% are foreigners, 9% young people. In Lombardy, on the other hand, women drive 26% of the companies, foreigners 4% and young people 5%.
