Scape in Australia
Scape launched in Australia in 2013 and we have become the biggest PBSA (purpose-built student accommodation) owner and operator since our acquisition of the Atira and Urbanest Australia portfolios in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Our diverse offering and price points now means there is a Scape for everyone.
Scape has 16,000 beds in 33 buildings across Australia’s four key educational precincts – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. We also have 12 buildings in planning and development which will bring the portfolio to 22,000 beds by 2024.
We employ over 500 people and are the largest investor in Australia’s higher education sector with A$6 billion in capital committed since 2018.
Scape has also diversified its offering to include Scape Living – a new way for students and working professionals to live centrally, affordably and easily.
