We are student housing management experts. Campus Advantage manages thousands of beds at properties across the United States.
As experienced student housing owners ourselves with over $1.3 billion in assets, we view the properties we manage through an investment lens and operate assets with an owner’s mindset. We’ve developed time-tested systems – from marketing to revenue management to differentiated student programming – to create better living experiences, which in turn creates financial success.
Our Time-Tested Management Approach Results In:
Constant, data-driven rental rate assessments and adjustments that maximize revenue growth
An intelligent approach to capital improvements that not only drives leasing velocity and renewals, but also ensures ROI and increased asset value
Consistent customer service training and ahead-of-the-curve resident renewal campaigns that drive retention, ultimately reducing marketing and turn costs

How We Work
Investors & Owners
To increase the value of your assets and meet or exceed annual net operating income (NOI) goals, we monitor performance, drive rents, implement operational efficiencies, and manage capital improvement projects.
Lenders & Investors
To evaluate return on investment, our consulting studies address student housing feasibility, research market demand, assess operations at existing student housing communities, evaluate acquisition opportunities through a due diligence process, and more.
We help you deliver purpose-built student housing with maximized rental and occupancy through market analysis and feasibility studies, design and development consulting, initial marketing and lease-up services, and ongoing management.
Colleges & Universities
Working with colleges, universities, and their foundations as consultants and management partners, we develop tailored platforms specific to the needs of the campus and student base, to create an atmosphere where students can thrive academically, personally, and professionally.
