Uni2 Rent celebrates rapid growth as it champions Nottingham

Student lettings and management company Uni2 Rent is celebrating a period of strong growth, having more than doubled its annual revenue over the last three years.

Nottingham-based Uni2 Rent, which was founded in the city by an entrepreneurial student in 2012, works to house the Nottingham student community in contemporary, centrally located homes and works with landlords with houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs) and large investment funds with purpose-built accommodation sites.

The company has seen its turnover increase by nearly 70% since 2016 and now manages more than 1,000 student rooms across Nottingham. It has also continued to expand its team and currently has two positions available, based at its branch on Canning Circus, Derby Road.

Founder and managing director, Ed Henderson, said:

“I knew from first-hand experience that there was a gap in the market for a specialist student accommodation company that really understood the wants and needs of the student community. We created an easy-to-use service that goes beyond quality accommodation, with added services to make student living easy, fun and stress-free.

“We’ve been able to fill 100% of our rooms year-on-year which is something we’re extremely proud of and is down to our hungry and energetic team, including our brand ambassadors who actively go out and talk to students about our services.

“It’s an exciting time for the business and our team and long may our growth continue. Being a two-university city, Nottingham is the ideal place to run a business such as ours and I just love the energy of the city and its students.”

As well as offering accommodation inclusive of bills and utilities, Uni2 Rent partner with local companies to offer exclusive discounts for services like laundry, cleaning, taxis, gym memberships, restaurants and even a home-cooked meals delivery service.

The company also offers property sourcing, purchasing, development, lettings and management to investors, culminating in the sourcing and sale of more than £12million worth of property stock over the last two years.

Following its recent growth, Uni2 Rent has set its sites on further championing Nottingham as the go-to city for students.

Ed added,

“We are always looking for new sites and HMOs to meet the demands of our database of investors – with all sales completing off-market through cash buyers and our 100% let track record, we are the right partner to work with.

“There are plenty of student residential development plans in Nottingham but I still think there is an undersupply in the market as university numbers increase. I’m looking forward to continuing our upward trajectory and championing the city as the place to be for an amazing student experience - we are enjoying a busy 2019 with lots of opportunities in the pipeline.”

Uni2 Rent offers full property management, purpose-built student accommodation management, tenant finding, property sales, sourcing, development and refurbishments within its growing portfolio of investors and properties.
