Centricity provides property management companies in the multifamily and student housing industry with centralized support services essential to their operations.
“Campus Advantage and Student Quarters have been competitors in the student housing space for more than a decade,” said Mike Peter, President and CEO, Campus Advantage. “While we remain completely separate companies, we saw that the complementary nature of our key support platforms enabled us to instantly scale our operations by combining key functions, such as HR and property accounting. In this format, our respective core property management operations and culture remain unique, while we join forces to create a central hub for essential community solutions. It’s a win-win, and we believe it provides a needed solution to others in the student housing and multifamily industry.”
