Q2 2019


The truth is, until now, you’ve had to settle for “less than” in Student Property Management software. And as a result, you’ve made it clear you need more: more capabilities, more functionality, more ease, simplicity and flexibility.

We heard you. And we responded with a purpose-built, fully integrated, powerful and flexible platform—one you can’t find anywhere except RealPage®. And the right people are starting to take notice. Hence the movement to RealPage Student. It’s a movement because it’s more than just software—it’s a better way to work. And because in order to win in Student, you need all the right tools—not just some of them.

With this newsletter, our aim is to keep you informed on everything you need to know about today’s Student Housing market, RealPage Student products and services, and upcoming and past events. It’s required reading for anyone in Student Housing.

Keep Moving Forward,
Whitney Kidd, VP Student Market, RealPage

RealPage® Student Renter Engagement helps Student owners and operators make data-driven decisions to maximize the value of their heads on beds.

RealPage Renter Engagement covers all of your connections, from prospects to residents. You’ll reach more Student prospects, capture more leads, convert more renters and retain more student residents next year, all while driving record performance from your team.
