    Knowledge Quarter a Must for Student Accommodation Investment

    Liverpool is widely regarded as one of the best places to invest in the UK, thanks to affordable property prices, high rental yields and a growing population of young professionals.

    In the city, there are several areas in which property investors should focus their attention, as they present the best of what Liverpool has to offer. Locations like the city centre and the Baltic Triangle are often mentioned, but another area is quickly becoming a hotpot of student buy-to-let properties.

    The Knowledge Quarter is one of Liverpool’s newest and most popular areas for students thanks to a range of regeneration schemes that have rejuvenated the region in recent years.

    Here are some of the biggest reasons why the Liverpool Knowledge Quarter has become a hotspot for student property investment.

    Wide Range of University Facilities

    One of the main reasons that students flock to Liverpool is the number of high-quality universities located in the city.

    Both the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University draw in thousands of students every year, while smaller institutions like Liverpool Hope University are becoming increasingly popular because of the vibrant student scene in the city.

    The Knowledge Quarter is home to key buildings of several of Liverpool’s universities, including John Moores City Campus and Mount Pleasant Campus, as well as the University of Liverpool’s Health & Life Sciences Campus and Foundation Building.

    These are just some of the many educational locations situated in the Knowledge Quarter, so the area is always filled with students going back and forth from their place of study to their homes.

    Students want to be close to where they study, so student buy-to-let properties in the Knowledge Quarter always draw in tenants thanks to the proximity of university facilities on offer.

    Huge Amounts of Regeneration

    The Knowledge Quarter is the focus of some of Liverpool’s largest regeneration schemes, with millions being poured into the area over the coming years.

    Beginning in 2016 and set to be completed by 2025, there has been over £1 billion worth of regeneration pumped into the Knowledge Quarter with a further £1 billion set to be invested into the area in the coming years.

    This has included brand new buildings for Liverpool’s science, medicine and technology sectors, as well as additional facilities for the city’s universities.

    One of the headlining regeneration schemes is Paddington Village, a massive new development space for technology, science, education and health. The 1.8m sq. ft. space is home to the Royal College of Physicians’ first location outside of London, sure to draw in new students to Liverpool.

    In addition to this, brand-new office spaces and business locations will bring hundreds of new jobs to the area, so there will be lots of work available for students living in the Knowledge Quarter.

    Thanks to these regeneration schemes, the Knowledge Quarter is becoming more and more popular with students due to all the new educational and business opportunities, and so student buy-to-let properties are becoming hot investment options.

      The Vibrant Culture and Student Scene

      Liverpool is known throughout the UK for its lively student scene and is renowned across the world as a cultural landmark of the North-West, and for this reason, it is always popular with students.

      The Knowledge Quarter is no exception to this, with its proximity to the city centre making it an excellent spot for those studying in the area.

      John Moores Student Union, or JMSU for short, is located within the Knowledge Quarter, so students can be sure of a cheap and enjoyable night out within walking distance.

      There are also several of Liverpool’s cultural landmarks within the Quarter for those looking for something to do in the daytime. The Everyman Theatre is an example which is perfect for students looking to catch a play and support the arts.

      Other popular spots in Liverpool are well within walking distance, so student buy-to-let properties in the Knowledge Quarter are well-placed to make the most of everything the city has to offer!
