Student Depot is Poland’s leading student housing developer and operator with almost 4,200 beds in operation, ca. 1,000 beds under construction or at the design phase. The company operates students houses in the largest Polish academic cities: Warsaw, Cracow, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Poznan, Lodz and Lublin. The dormitories provide tenants with everything they need to live comfortably, study and spend their free time in an international community of young people from more than 50 countries.
The platform was established in 2014 by Griffin and Oaktree Capital Management with the opening of Poland’s very first PBSA building in the city centre of Poznan, which was a conversion of an existing hotel building. Later in 2019 Kajima Student Housing Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kajima Europe and part of the Kajima Corporation, acquired Student Depot in partnership with Griffin. In 2022 Student Depot was recognised as ‘International Operator of the Year’ during Property Week Student Housing Awards.
Griffin Capital Partners acts as co-owner and asset manager of the platform.
