Clearbell Property Partners III LP (Clearbell), in partnership with PBSA specialist property consultancy Iceni Property Asset Management, announces the acquisition of six purpose-built student accommodation residences in Aberdeen from Unite Students as part of the growth of its Every Student brand.

The six assets, totalling 1,050 beds and spread across the city, provide excellent transport links to both the city centre and University of Aberdeen, with two thirds of the assets sporting high-quality ensuite options.

Under Clearbell and Iceni’s management, a rolling refurbishment programme will be implemented across all properties to enhance Customer experience.

This acquisition brings the total number of student accommodation beds to 1,859 across the portfolio.

With a population of more than 400,000, Aberdeen was named as the best Scottish city to live and work in 2021.
