In 2017, Hines Global REIT II, Inc. acquired Queen’s Court Student Residences, a 395-bed accommodation in Reading, United Kingdom. Once the UK headquarters for Yellow Pages, the asset was converted in 2016 into a Class A student housing property.
Queen’s Court is comprised of “twodios” (two studios shared by a kitchen) and an array of other floor plans. Amenities include a study area, cinema and game rooms, plus an on-site gym and laundry facilities.
Located in Reading’s town centre, Queen’s Court is in close proximity to the University of Reading, giving residents access to major shopping destinations—the Broad Street Mall and the Oracle Shopping Centre—plus a variety of dining, retail and entertainment venues. The property is approximately half a mile from a bus stop that offers transportation to the campus and less than a mile from Reading Station, which offers direct trains to London.
