LANDLORDS in Hampshire are being urged to keep an eye on falling university admissions after new figures reveal a drop in student admissions.
Data from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) showed nationally there were 265,784 university applications by UK-based candidates up to 17 December, down by 6.8 per cent compared to the same period last year.
He said: “If university applications continue to drop at the current rate this could ultimately lead to some landlords having empty properties on their hands or having to cope with falling rents in the coming years.”
