Leighton Hall, Preston

Investment Summary

With student accommodation, already unquestionably the best performing investment sector in the UK year after year, the 100 en suite rooms and 7 studios we are now in a position to offer you in Leighton Hall, Preston can certainly be counted among its crown jewels.

Not only are they the best located units in Leighton Hall voted “best value for money student residence” by the 33,000 member UCLAN Students Union, but they are also rented out, managed, and maintained on behalf of the owners hands-free by the UK’s number one student operator, CRM Students.

The building is fully operational, and our studios and en suite rooms are currently tenanted and already rented out for the 2015/2016 year, as they’ve been for the last ten years.  


With prices starting from £41,640 for 140 year leaseholds and rental yields of 7% net assured for five years starting immediately, paid quarterly in arrears and projected to increase beyond that, we don’t see them remaining available for long.

Leighton Hall is located at the south of the University of Central Lancashire’s City Campus (UCLan) and across the street from many of the main buildings and lecture halls. It is perfectly positioned to provide its lucky student residents with their much sought after modern, affordable, and well- managed purpose built accommodation.

A further upgrade already planned for the rooms and studios and included in the sale price will be carried out in the summer of 2016. This upgrade assures their continuing premium status and attractiveness to the students, and to you their owners, the certainty of continuing 100% occupancy and a truly exceptional secure, hands-free high yield investment.
