Leading integrated business in the student-related accommodation sector
The Student Hotel (TSH) is an integrated developer, owner and operator of student-related accommodation headquartered in Amsterdam. The company operates a unique hybrid model catering to design-savvy students and travellers, by fusing long-stay student housing with short-stay accommodation. Its properties feature trendy design, modern rooms and vibrant common areas.
Fund II acquired a controlling stake in TSH, which it owns alongside an institutional co-investor and certain management executives, who maintain a minority stake. At the time of acquisition, TSH operated exclusively in the Netherlands. The team is working with TSH’s management to expand its operations, and to identify, acquire and develop/redevelop well-located projects in major international university and tourist cities across Europe. With each project, TSH seeks to significantly upgrade the environmental positioning of the property and create a lively and accessible social venue, while working with and contributing to the local community.
The capital intensive expansion is facilitated by significant follow-on investments made by Fund II and the co-investor, with the ultimate goal to transform TSH into the top pan-European operator in its field. Including established facilities and secured projects, TSH is present across the Netherlands, Barcelona, Berlin, Florence, Bologna and Paris, with more to come.
