YEARS OF STUDENT HOUSING EXPERIENCE

Student housing operators make the best consultants. Backed by 15 years of operational expertise, Campus Advantage’s consulting services benefit new entrants to the student housing market and experienced owners, developers and lenders, alike. Going beyond the empirical data — we eat, sleep and breath student housing, and bring that experience to every consulting project.

OUR SERVICES

Student housing consulting services may be customized to meet your needs. Our most popular consulting studies include:

Market Analysis and Project Feasibility

Have a site identified for a proposed student housing development?

For those new to student housing or experienced developers seeking third-party confirmation for a lender, your study includes a market assessment and site-specific analysis, plus primary research and interviews with the student population at your target campus to determine project feasibility. Your final report includes a recommended unit mix, rental rates, amenity suggestions, feedback from students, and an experience-informed operating budget created from historical data from over 175 properties.

Operational Assessment

Own an underperforming student housing property?

For owners, lenders, and colleges or universities losing students to alternate housing sources, missing occupancy or revenue goals, or experiencing challenges with retaining staff, your operational assessment includes an in-depth analysis of your operating budget, staffing plan, residence life programming, and marketing – including a review of competitive properties – to identify the operational changes that will best address your property’s current market position.

Due Diligence

Considering acquiring a student housing asset?

Whether you’re a first-time buyer of student housing or simply don’t have the available resources to conduct thorough due diligence, our assessment will confirm the existing and future rent rolls, identify priority capital investments, evaluate rental rates, and recommend the operational adjustments needed to meet or exceed your anticipated return.

“George Mason University selected Campus Advantage to assist with our first on-campus housing… They played an instrumental role in planning and operating our new facility, including delivery of a customized Residence Life program for our graduate medical students. Their efforts have resulted in better performing assets as well as happy employees and residents at our site.”

 

Jana Hurley, Assistant Vice President University Life, George Mason University

“Alexandria Technical & Community College engaged Campus Advantage to consult on the development of our first on-campus housing. Because they operate student housing, they understand every aspect, every detail. Over time, we and our development partners continue to add areas where we asked Campus Advantage for their expertise. We found their advice invaluable to launching Foundation Hall with full occupancy. Our students love it.”

 

Kim Barse, Founder / Executive Vice President, ORB
