At University Partnerships Programme (UPP) we create bespoke, long-term partnerships which enable universities to make the most effective use of their assets, free up resources and improve student services.
We fund, design, develop and operate high-quality and affordable accommodation on campus and deliver the very best student experience in partnership with universities.
Our unique partnership approach enables our university partners to develop their estates whilst reinvesting in their core services of teaching and research.
We fund, design and build new on-campus residential and academic accommodation infrastructure, complete estate transfers and operate facilities over the long-term.
Our transactions are typically undertaken on a demand-risk-transfer basis through a non-recourse approach, with the asset returning to the university in an agreed condition at the end of the concession.
We encourage our partners to take an equity share in the project company so that both parties benefit from the successful delivery and performance of the accommodation, with interests aligned over the life of the partnership.
