Evans Property Group is looking to offload its remaining student accommodation assets in York and has appointed Deloitte Real Estate to facilitate the sale.

Evans holds assets at York University's £750m Heslington East Campus and has already sold its 50% stake in Constantine College back to the university at twenty-times the development cost.

The company is now looking to dispose of the two remaining colleges, totalling 1,240 beds, on the open market.

The accommodation was developed in a joint venture between Evans and York University in 2014 and formed plans by the university to double its size through a £750m campus extension.

All three blocks purpose-built student accommodation are owned in equal share by Evans and York university.
