Student housing management has emerged as an industry on the back of a rising number of international students arriving in Australia. Education is now a major export of Australia with a total of 3.5 million foreign students enrolled in Higher Education and VET courses in 2014. Property developers have recognised an opportunity in catering for these students via providing purpose built accommodation. Student housing managers assist investors with tenant administration, leasing and rent collection. A big component of the industry is the provision of global marketing to attract international students.
Enterprises in this industry specialise in the management student accommodation. While a number of enterprises in the industry own the property they manage, rental income is not included in the industry. The industry also excludes any revenue derived from the operation of student housing. Only services relevant to property management are considered.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
