Far East Orchard is confident that the demand for student dorms in the U.K. will remain strong despite Brexit.

The student dorms will be managed by its previous operator for its other student housing properties in Newcastle.

Despite Brexit, Far East Orchard is confident that the demand for student dorms in the U.K. will remain strong. The city’s two universities fed an estimated 10,000 students into the local population over the past decade. This has fed a growing demand for student accommodation, which can reward landlords with lucrative rental yields.

With another 193-bed development in Brighton is in the pipeline for 2019, Far East Orchard is on track for its goal of 3,000 beds in four year’s time.
