A fantastic investment opportunity, offering guaranteed returns and low buy in prices. This 4th floor mill conversion will be the closest student accomodation to Lancaster University on campus and by far the highest specification.

*About the development*
A refurbished Victorian mill, the property combines all the amenities of modern student living with the rustic charm of Lancaster's industrial history. Nestled in Lancaster's greenbelt, the property boasts an unbeatable location as the closest privately built student accommodation to Lancaster University campus. Combined, these factors make The Mill one of the city's most desirable properties for students and investors alike.The museum on the first floor is a permanent exhibition of some of the old mill machinery that has been carefully removed from the original site. The building is the world's first mechanical silk mill, dating back to 1700, and we were keen to showcase this and preserve its important historical heritage. Each apartment is built to a high specification and a full furniture pack can be provided.

*About Lancaster*
Lancaster is home to over 18,000 students and hosts two higher education institutions: Lancaster University and The University of Cumbria's Lancaster campus.
Lancaster University is among the best the UK has to offer. Consistently ranking in the top 10 of all three major national league tables, the institution is also within the top 1% of universities globally. In addition, Lancaster sits 3rd for graduate-level employment in the Times and Sunday Times's Good University Guide 2019.
As a result, it's an extremely popular destination, attracting 12,960 students from 142 countries during 2017/18. And, it's growing.
The student population has increased at a rate of 16% P/A since 2008/09 - well above the national average of 12%. The city's smaller institution, The University of Cumbria, specialises in agriculture and natural sciences and operates across six campuses throughout Cumbria and the North West. The institution attracted 8,635 students in 2016/17 and has grown continually since being granted full university status in 2007.
