A new approach to student accommodation needs

A new approach to student accommodation needs

Generate new revenues with low-cost modular housing solutions built above existing car parks and unused spaces

Increasing competition and funding pressures across the higher education sector and the need to provide and maintain high quality student accommodation are key issues for Universities and Colleges.

Soaring student rents and poor quality housing in the private sector has pushed college accommodation in many areas into crisis. At the same time managing college owned accommodation is increasingly complex with rising renovation costs and growing student numbers to provide for.

A unique, rapid, fully-funded low-cost solution, that builds quality accommodation units above existing car parks, without impacting current parking provisions, could be the answer, helping to generate new long-term revenue streams.

  • Need to quickly resolve student accommodation shortages?
  • Want to exploit air-rights over car parks and make use of unwanted, difficult to develop or spare land?
  • Need to generate new income streams without sacrificing valuable real estate?

ZEDpods – fast, low-cost accommodation

ZEDpod student housing offers a fast, low cost, sustainable solution for expanding on-campus accommodation, taking advantage of unwanted or unused pieces of land and air-rights above your car parks.

Rapid installation means an end to over running construction and refurbishment programmes and gives you flexibility to respond to rising student numbers, avoiding conventional lengthy construction processes.

The same solution can be used to provide a valuable housing resource and new income streams without sacrificing valuable real estate. ZEDPods are high quality, aspirational one bedroom homes for first time buyers or young people looking to buy or rent.

It’s a flexible solution too, with designs covering single units to complete blocks of housing and it’s easily repurposed or relocated at a later date.

So, if your student accommodation requirements change, your ZEDPod units can be rapidly converted to high quality residential accommodation for sale or rent.
