Homes for Students

Homes for Students (HFS) was founded in 2015 and we work with international and UK based investors and developers across a multitude of student schemes. The team now manage over 25,000 beds, in over 100 properties, across over 40 towns and cities, with a pipeline of around 5,000 beds.

The HFS management team includes Martin Corbett (Managing Director), Kate Forester (Sales and Operations Director), Graham Rogers (Commercial Director) and James Tucknott (Finance Director),who are all shareholders at HFS. A Grosvenor House Group subsidiary provides guarantees for HFS. We recognise that scale is important, in particular for sales and marketing and our business plan is for the company to manage 30,000 student beds by mid-2021, via both direct let and university-owned accommodation.

Sales and marketing is one of the primary elements in the company ensuring we achieve high occupancy levels across the portfolio we manage and in some very tough markets. We have, therefore, set up a very capable and experienced team under Kate Forester and Scott Lewis. Our team are well known in the industry and have many useful contacts which can be utilised to facilitate purchase or sale transactions.
