Canterbury Residential Study Centre for sale

BTF Partnership is offering for sale The Franciscan International Study Centre in Canterbury, with a guide price of £3.5 million.


The centre is positioned just over one mile from Canterbury city centre and adjacent to the University of Kent campus and St Edmund’s School.


Built in the 1970’s in grounds of 3 acres, the complex includes a main building of over 15,000 sq ft, housing a substantial library, offices and meeting rooms, a common room, refectory and kitchen.  There are also five residential blocks providing a total of 43 bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities; each block having a communal sitting room and kitchen.


Canterbury is an important educational hub in Kent with four universities having a combined population of over 46,000 students plus several language schools, colleges, grammar and independent schools.


William Hinckley, Director at BTF Partnership comments: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for either an occupier seeking a residential study centre or for those involved in the student rental market.  It offers good quality accommodation ready for occupation with scope for further extension or development.  With less than 23% of the city’s students housed in university accommodation, Canterbury is considered a top investment opportunity student accommodation and this occupies an ideal location next to the University.
