Developing a global network of villages
Campus Living Villages opened its first village at the University of Sydney in Australia in 2003. Since then, CLV has experienced significant international growth, demonstrating the capability and credibility of its operational and development expertise.
In 2005, CLV expanded into New Zealand, signing its first lease with Massey University. This was followed closely by the acquisition of the University of Canterbury’s student accommodation in December that year, including an agreement to develop further housing on the site.
In 2006, CLV acquired the United States business, Century Campus Housing Management L.P., adding approximately 20,000 beds to the portfolio. Founded in 1986, Century was an established and credible operator in the US student housing market, bringing a wealth of experience in the educational and student housing sectors to the business.
Given the demand for student accommodation in the United Kingdom, CLV entered its first agreement with the University of Salford in 2008, followed by the University of Bedfordshire in 2010.
CLV currently owns, manages or is developing over 35,000 beds across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
