About Us

CRM Students

We are Europe’s serviced living operator – a market-leading accommodation provider with a unique and comprehensive portfolio of properties and bespoke management services. We’re dedicated to working in partnership with our clients, delivering a high-quality service to achieve maximum occupancy and a predictable income.

We believe our success is founded on our approach. By working in partnership with owners and placing the tenant and development of communities at the heart of what we do, establishing a safe and happy place for our residents, employees and the local community.

Our structure, resources and budgets reflect this philosophy, ensuring a property performs for its entire lifecycle. We’ve developed a unique offering for our residents and work hard to ensure this reflects our client’s individual aspirations.

CRM has grown and developed throughout the years. Our extensive experience of successfully providing quality student accommodation has now enabled us to diversify our offering, extending our existing service model to deliver market leading solutions to exciting new sectors and international markets.

The UK’s leading provider of
private student accomodation

CRM began life in 2003 following a management buy-out from Savills and has grown to become a leading serviced living operator, working in both the UK and the wider European market.

Focused on the assets of corporate, university and institutional investors, and with over 20 years’ experience successfully delivering client objectives, we provide management services for over 25,000 rooms. Our operations are centrally supported, locally led and completely transparent.

Support for our clients starts from the concept stage of a development project, and our unparalleled breadth of experience and focus is often called upon by private and institutional developers. The growth of CRM as a company has been achieved organically, through careful and thorough management of our clients’ assets. We’ve also been able to adapt our offering to the ever-changing needs of residents, particularly in their requirement for an outstanding experience.

CRM Joins Corestate Capital

In 2018, CRM joined the Corestate Capital family, providing a strong platform for the expansion of our management brand into mainland Europe. Having a fully integrated investment manager as our parent company has aided the expansion of our service offering, allowing a wider breadth of investment, asset and property management opportunities to offer our clients.

Corestate Capital acquired CRM with the vision of becoming Europe’s leading provider for micro-living and student accommodation. With this shared objective, experience and resources, we now have a solid foundation to allow Corestate to acquire additional investment opportunities throughout Europe.

Corestate Capital is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and has assets under management of approx. €25bn. Find out more about Corestate Capital.

We have developed rigorous privacy processes between CRM and Corestate to give our clients comfort that we operate independently from our parent company. We offer European management services to a wide range of clients, which include but are not limited to, Corestate.

We’re dedicated to delivering value and predictable income to our clients. And with 95% of our income derived from the management of purpose-built serviced accommodation, we’re fully committed to this market and to provide an industry-leading solution for the development, mobilisation and operational management of serviced living properties.
