The Professionally Managed Student Accommodation (PMSA) sector has been a bright spot amongst the alternative assets in the Indian RE industry. With a fast-track evolutionary journey backed by a steady inflow of migrating students particularly in large metro cities and major education hubs, providing quality accommodation to students has gained substantial traction. The higher education institutes (HEIs) are able to offer accommodation options only to a small proportion of the overall student volume, hence the private operators have a significant opportunity to participate in this segment. The student community too derives the benefit of the emergence of these private players who ensure safe and healthy staying options with significant facilities’ upgrades to these students away from their homes.
