Universities internationally have recently increased their campuses to attract a broader coverage of students in a very competitive university education market (e.g.: international students). This has seen many universities establish a CBD office presence via vertical campuses in addition to their traditional campuses. Universities have considered a range of options to access the office property space, with the attractiveness of universities as major office space tenants and university education assets now being critically assessed as a potential property sector for investors; e.g.: included in a property fund. Using an extensive survey of Australian universities, superannuation funds, property funds and valuers, critical issues in the successful delivery of education assets as a new property sector are assessed for these various stakeholders in the education asset delivery process. A number of local and international case-studies are also presented to highlight specific strategic and practical issues for education assets as a property sector and universities as major office space tenants.
