A nationwide student accommodation provider has told that it is considering entering the Nottingham market.

Vita Student, which is based in Manchester, has accommodation blocks in Manchester, Southampton, Newcastle, York, Bristol, Liverpool, Exeter, Glasgow and Edinburgh – and is now looking at Nottingham.

The firm has made its name on providing exclusive events for residents and their friends in its “hub spaces”, including fashion shows, parties and gaming nights.

A statement on the company’s website reads: “No other student accommodation brand in the UK focuses solely on you. There is no other brand that treats you as a valued customer. No brand that gives you a truly world-class living experience.”

Vita Student is part of the Select Property Group. Speaking exclusively to, a spokesperson for the firm said: “Although we have not yet purchased a site, Nottingham is one of a number of cities we are currently looking at for Vita Student. Nottingham has a fantastic reputation for academic excellence and we believe the ambition and drive of the city’s student population is synonymous with the Vita Student brand.”
