UK Property Investment Seminar


Why Invest in Oxford?

Oxford stands out as one of the most prosperous economies in the country, with a promising future ahead. According to a Demos-PwC report, it has been recognized as the top UK city for both economic success and overall well-being.

Undoubtedly, the universities play a central role in Oxford’s achievements. The University of Oxford, in particular, stands as the largest single employer in Oxfordshire, with nearly 14,000 employees. However, Oxford’s success extends beyond academia. The city boasts thriving industries that offer well-paid jobs and contribute to its forward-facing economy. Sectors such as health, education, research, technology, and publishing are prominent, with institutions like the John Radcliffe Hospital serving as part of one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK, renowned for its clinical excellence.

Notably, Oxford holds a special place in automotive history as the birthplace of one of the world’s most iconic cars—the Mini. The Mini Plant Oxford, located in Cowley, produces a staggering 1,000 Minis every day and ranks among the city’s largest private employers.

As for its population, Oxford currently stands at around 155,000 residents. Oxford City Council reports that the city is undergoing rapid population growth, with an increase of 15,000 people every decade, highlighting the attractiveness and appeal of living in this vibrant and thriving city.

  • A Cherwell investigation has found that the average rent increase among Oxford colleges for 2023 sits at 8.62%.
  • St Peter’s College is facing one of the healthiest rent hikes, at 12%.
  • Wadham is another college facing large rent increases. After an initial proposed 14% increase.
