About GCP Student Living plc
The Company was the first student accommodation REIT in the UK. The Company invests in modern, purpose-built, private student residential accommodation and teaching facilities. Its investments are located primarily in and around London where the Investment Manager believes the Company is likely to benefit from supply and demand imbalances for student residential accommodation.
The Company currently owns and operates c.2,000 beds across six properties. Its assets are primarily occupied by international students and offer new high specification facilities and hotel-level concierge type services which the Investment Manager believes are attractive to overseas students.
