The student housing market is now considered one of the major asset classes for institutional investors in the US. The growth of post-secondary educational institutions over the past two decades has caught the attention of both publicly traded and privately held companies. Savvy investors understand the swelling enrollments of colleges and universities drive demand for residential properties suited to the student demographic.
EBI’s student housing team understands the need to deliver student housing that responds to evolving building formats and amenities. Our experts help create strategies that adapt to a more institutionalized market in collaboration with universities for on-campus projects and private owners for off-campus developments. Approaches may involve our experts working with university staff or private developers to guide the land acquisition transaction, navigate the entitlement process, create a design concept, incorporate intelligent environmental design, develop the building’s construction plan, or manage the project schedule.
