Opto is located a short walk from Northumbria University (home to 27,165 students) and Newcastle University (home to 22,000 students), with 15% of all students from overseas. From 2010 to 2015 Newcastle University saw a 70% increase in student numbers and Northumbria University saw a staggering 110% increase. Therefore, there is a high demand from an undersupplied market.
