Rathmell Hall Overview

Situated on George Hudson Street, Rathmell Hall could not be in a more central location. Coppergate shopping centre, York Train Station, the iconic York Minster and a vast majority of the city centre’s bars, restaurants, shops and cafés are just a stone’s throw from the development, as well as the city’s many excellent transport links.  

Both of the city’s higher-education institutions—the University of York and York St. John University—are just a short bus or car journey from Rathmell Hall, making this the perfect development for its student residents.  

Rathmell Hall is to become a stunning £1.8m conversion of a former office block in the heart of York, providing 58 high-end and much-needed studio apartments to the vastly growing student market in the city.

Why invest in York?

York is one of the most historic places in the UK. The mix of medieval buildings and Roman and Viking ruins makes it a unique and interesting city to explore. You can walk the city walls, visit York Castle and York Minster, and wander through The Shambles, the city’s famous medieval cobbled streets.

It is an incredible place to work, live and visit and also study. In addition, York is also a very safe city and was ranked as the 8th Safest University in the UK by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings Student Experience Survey in 2018. As a relatively small city, it’s easy for residents to travel around.

There are thousands of students each year looking for suitable shared or single accommodation and York’s student rental demand is incredibly high, which would mean investing in student property would guarantee continual income. Depending on the choice of property and rental income, many landlords can see up to 4.3% yields within the York area according to Property Data.
