With students facing steep costs for higher education, housing is a top priority and a key factor in the decision process for commitment. Undergraduate enrollment is projected to increase to 17.4 million students by 2027 according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Developers looking to capitalize on this demand must also consider the impact of the school community and additional cost that housing implies for young students and families coming to the area.

Current Trends in University Life: University Partnerships: How can universities partner with private developers to work together to address evolving student demands.

Affordable Student Housing: The cost of housing has added thousands on top of an already high bill for many families. A lot of universities have more students then beds which poses an issue for the surrounding communities. The waitlist alone for UNT housing is $400 for new students.

Development Trends: Where is capital coming from and what is going to push the market forward?

Join Bisnow in Austin and hear from the top owners, developers, investors, universities, and more at our most exciting event of the year!
