Groupe Kley


Who we are

Founded in 2014 by Oaktree Capital Management and taken over by Axa Investment Managers Real Assets in 2019, Kley provides much more than student residences. Our three areas of expertise and experience are as investors, operators and owners. As a preferred partner of property companies, local authorities, universities and schools, we design our residences to be places for stimulating, connected and collaborative living.

Our vision

Millennials are facing big housing challenges. They find current services to be of poor quality and out of step with their everyday lives and view of the world. Rather than just a roof over their heads and a place to sleep, students are now looking for an experience where they can both study and flourish. Kley is revolutionising the student residence market with an innovative concept that fits a new mindset:
Happy Performance!

Our growth

KLEY "Génération Etudiante" currently welcomes 2,850 students in 9 residences in Angers, Caen, Champs-sur-Marne, Gennevilliers, Gentilly, Marseille, Paris-Saclay, Rennes and Toulouse. The group plans to welcome more than 7,000 students by 2022, with the acquisition of 14 additional residences. Building on the success of its student residence model, the group is diversifying its activity and launching KLEY "Urban Village" , a coliving accommodation concept dedicated to young active people. The group plans to open its first residence in 2022, and to develop 8 other coliving residences by 2025.
