Three institutes of higher education. Two world-class universities. One city of millennials.

With 100,000 students across Northern Ireland’s third-level education sector, Belfast is enticing local, national and international young people to study in the city. Home to a vibrant social scene and a rich cultural heritage, there is plenty of choice and opportunity for these millennials to make their mark upon the world in Belfast.

Ulster University is creating a dynamic teaching and learning environment with state-of-the-art facilities in line with Belfast’s vision of being a ‘Smart City’. Its new £250m inner city investment will extend the already vibrant Cathedral Quarter to include a 75,000sqm campus with up to 15,000 students and staff.

In the world’s top 1% of universities and a member of the prestigious Russell Group, Queen’s University Belfast has seen over £350 million worth of investment in the last ten years into its facilities. Over the next decade QUB will invest at least the same amount again in maintaining a world-class international university that supports outstanding students and staff, working in world-class facilities, whilst conducting leading-edge education and research.

Post-education, this pipeline of graduates will require residential accommodation – creating demand for PRS schemes.

Thousands of purpose-built student accommodation opportunities have already been granted in Belfast, with more being available for planning.
