Barclays (BCS) sells a 60% stake in U.K. student housing company University Partnerships Programme (UPP) to Holland's PGGM in deal estimated at £840M. Barclays is now considering selling the other 40% in UPP, Reuters reports, as it looks to exploit the strong investor demand for student accommodation.
