Purpose-built student housing, coliving, and hybrid models are in the spotlight of alternative asset classes. Opportunistic investors and pioneers in PBSA have been quick to respond to this market development. Within The Class community alone, we’ve confirmed that leading investors in the niche residential ‘blended living’ asset classes are poised to invest around €25 billion globally over the next 3-5 years.
The Class Pan-European Summit will put investment in the spotlight as we join forces with Yolande Barnes, from UCL’s Bartlett Real Estate Institute.

Will this be an innovative solution that can potentially solve the housing crisis?
