According to Kenya’s Ministry of Education, available student housing in Kenya stands at 300,000 against a university enrollment of 520,900 as at 2018, excluding technical colleges. Leaving a massive student housing deficit of 42.41%. This indicates a supply gap and an opportunity for property developers to explore.
