COVID-19: Impact on Student Housing

Colleges across the country have sent students home for the spring semester and are shifting to online learning. Campus closures impact not only current residents but future students, as well—because campuses are shut down during the traditionally busy pre-leasing fall period.

Join RealPage VP Jay Parsons and student housing experts Carl Whitaker and Ryan Kimura for the live webcast, COVID-19: Impact on Student Housing, as they examine recent trends and discuss the pandemic’s impact on higher education in 2020 and 2021.

  • How do we handle the closing of campuses and college tours during the hot pre-leasing season for the 2020 fall semester?
  • How are student housing operators handling students who left town for the remainder of the current school year while still under lease?
  • Does this epidemic accelerate the growth of online learning at the expense of on-campus learning?

No one has all the answers in these unprecedented circumstances, but in this engaging webcast, we will do our best to address your questions.
