Homes for Students, the UK and Ireland’s leading independent PBSA provider has unveiled the latest, and most impressive brand to join their line-up.

EVO Student, inspired by the evolution in student accommodation is a portfolio elevating the existing premium accommodation offerings to yet another, even more exciting level. Residents living at an EVO Student property can expect premium accommodation and facilities, prime locations and world-beating experiential and wellbeing wraparound experiences.

Managing Director Kate Forester adds,


“We’re delighted to share the news of EVO Student’s launch and are excited to see the concept take shape over the coming months. The current PBSA market is vast and varied. Students right across the budget spectrum are quite rightly demanding the highest level of facilities and service and the introduction of EVO Student enables us to further elevate that offer for those looking for more than a room, but a complete immersive experience.


The diversity within the Homes for Students portfolio, and the experience we have built over time mean we’re in the best possible position to bring students at all price points, with a range of needs and priorities, the right accommodation for them.”



In December 2023, the UK’s newest and most exciting portfolio EVO, welcomed Arcadian in the heart of Nottingham.   

Located in the lively core of Nottingham’s city centre, just across from the Victoria Centre, Arcadian promises a lifestyle that stands out, with a team devoted to creating a world-class wellbeing wraparound experience.



Due to welcome residents from September 2024, Arcadian will offer EVO Student residents an “Elevated” experiential programme delivered by a dedicated onsite team of experts; in addition to premium accommodation, extensive facilities and an unrivalled location.



Developed by real estate investors Urbium Capital, Arcadian will boast 293 ensuites and studios, a range of fully equipped fitness and performance spaces, ample study spaces, outstanding future-proofed digital connectivity, a coffee bar and a community wellness courtyard.  Investment Director Iain McKillop from Urbium Capital adds

“Launching the Arcadian on EVO Student is a commitment to developing the future of student housing. This lifestyle-led approach to real estate in UK student accommodation puts student wellbeing at the very heart of our offering and elevates the standards of service to our residents.”

Managing Director Kate Forester further adds

“We’ve been hugely impressed by Urbium Capital’s vision for the Arcadian building located in the heart of Nottingham. Arcadian is the perfect fit to become the first property within the EVO Student portfolio and more importantly to feature the revolutionary Elevated experiential programme developed exclusively for EVO Student residents.”
