Building vibrant, student-centred communities

To help institutions develop the best in campus living, CLV offers expertise in all aspects of the design, development and management of student housing.

We deliver a range of accommodation solutions and operating models that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of each partner we work with, including:

  • Developing new accommodation
  • BOOT schemes — build, own, operate, transfer
  • Management contracts
  • Acquiring new assets
  • Entering long-term lease options on land and/or buildings
  • Finding on or off-balance sheet solutions
  • Refurbishments
  • Project management

Community, security, sustainability and quality living are central to our design philosophy.

Working with campus master plans, we pride ourselves on developing solutions specific to the unique character, culture, demographics, location and spirit of every institution we work with. CLV does not operate a ‘one size fits all’ model. Just like our partners, each property we design is unique. From low-rise facilities to high-density developments, catered and non-catered services, flat land to challenging hillside developments, we have the experience and resources to deliver.

CLV aims to create villages that complement the campus environment and attract and retain residents. The provision of central communal areas, sport and entertainment facilities, study centres and spaces for village events and gatherings are key to CLV’s design and management philosophy.

Build, Own, Operate, Transfer (BOOT)

One of our most popular development options is the BOOT scheme — build, own, operate, transfer. This unique, vertically-integrated business model sees CLV develop and manage the property for an agreed term, before transferring ownership to the partnering institution. The BOOT scheme offers institutions the benefit of a secure, long-term relationship and single point of accountability with one entity over the life of the agreement. At the end of the term, the property is handed back in an agreed operational condition.

Examples

Joint Venture

The Joint Venture Model is where CLV is an equity partner, with minimal or no onsite presence. This model is very popular in the UK, and allows flexibility for exactly how CLV provides PBSA solutions, tailored to the needs and preferences of the University.

Examples

Hard FM, Soft Service

In this model, CLV provides life cycle services and capital management. There is no operational input (for example residential life programs, procurement). CLV retains flexibility to provide targeted services or even a full service model should the University require. This model showcases our commitment to property management and facilitating the accommodation experience delivered by the University through creating exceptional places.

Examples

In our management contract arrangements, it is key that our partners understand and are supportive of our residential life philosophy and have a desire to engage with us over the long term. This ensures we can deliver the best results for both property owners and residents, build effective relationships and networks, and establish a positive reputation for each site.
