Over 45,000 beds across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States

As the only student accommodation provider working across four regions and six countries, our specialty is creating tailored student communities that suit the unique culture of each campus, university or city we work with. We incorporate local legislation restrictions, cultural and social expectations and partner requirements without ever compromising on the final experience delivered to our students.

"CLV brings great international experience and expertise in developing student accommodation projects. We look forward to working closely with CLV to achieve our vision for Student Village Melbourne."

Our history



In 2003, we partnered with the University of Sydney to open our first site, Sydney University Village. Since then, we have continued to grow and develop partnerships with some of Australia’s top ranked universities.

New Zealand

2005 was the year CLV expanded into New Zealand, signing our first lease with Massey University. This was followed by the acquisition of the University of Canterbury’s student accommodation and an agreement to develop further housing on the site.

United States

20,000 beds were added to the portfolio in 2006, when we acquired the United States business, Century Campus Housing. Founded in 1986, Century was an established and credible operator in the US student housing market, bringing a wealth of experience into the business.

United Kingdom

Given the demand for student housing in the United Kingdom, CLV entered into its first agreement with the University of Salford in 2008, followed by the University of Bedfordshire in 2010. Since then, we have seen exponential growth, with the business doubling in size since 2014 and continuing to grow.

"CLV is genuinely committed to working closely with universities and other education partners, to enhance the student experience. The quality of their offerings and dedication to service marks CLV as a global leader in on-campus student accommodation. Having been the inaugural Chairman of Campus Living Villages from 2006 to 2012, and Vice-Chancellor of The University of New South Wales from 1992 to 2002, I am pleased to be associated with CLV, advising on university partnering and how best to continue delivering at the highest level."

The CLV difference

Student accommodation is more than just four walls and a bed, so we focus on creating an exciting student experience that will be remembered for years to come. With us, our residents find a home and a community, including exclusive programs and opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else.

Corporate social responsibility

We believe in giving back to our community. As a business dedicated to supporting students and young adults, we see ourselves as more than accommodation providers. Supporting charities, encouraging sustainable practices and creating a safe, supportive environment for residents, visitors and staff are important aspects of what we do.
