Marketing rooms to students requires specialized tools and knowledge of local market conditions. We have developed web based software for posting our properties, use student body organizations as rental agents and we partner with the local colleges and universities to maximize our exposure.
Unlike traditional high rise residential properties, leasing student housing happens in a compressed time frame that coincides with students making plans for the next academic period. In order to maximize occupancy a rigorous approach is required to lease up well in advance of projected occupancy and capture the market while the students are on campus.

For our larger properties we employ "student-life" assistants that are assigned to every two large floors, and one for the remainder of small floors, to be responsible for all aspects of tenancy supervision. The student-life assistants also work with the building population to develop resident programs including local community development and integration into the various educational institutions.
