Market Intelligence: Summer Student Housing Update

Now Available On Demand

Join RealPage® market experts Jay Parsons and Carl Whitaker for a lively, detailed discussion on the state of the nation’s student housing market. With only a few weeks until the fall semester kicks off, operators are working to fill remaining available beds and round out their properties with as much occupancy as possible.

The leasing season has been in far better shape than the previous two years, and that’s a sign many operators have welcomed. Can the year finish strong, or has the industry reached a performance ceiling for now?

Topics in this educational update include:

  • Prelease occupancy
  • Rent growth
  • Leading and lagging universities 
  • Construction update 
  • Key evolving storylines through the 2022 leasing season
  • What lies ahead for the 2023 leasing season
