NMHC Hosts Student Housing Conference

July 16, 2008
The Washington, D.C.-based National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) will explore opportunities in its seventh annual Student Housing Conference

Student housing remains one of the hottest niche sectors in the apartment industry as the next generation of students (Echo Boomers) begins to fill campuses of universities that do not have the resources to expand their housing supply. Called "recession proof" by many, student housing offers private apartment developers and operators new opportunities to tap into this demand and connect with future residents of the conventional apartment sector.

The Washington, D.C.-based National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) will explore these opportunities in its seventh annual Student Housing Conference on Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C. The event is open to NMHC members and non-members.

Designed to shorten the learning curve for newcomers and to provide seasoned student housing professionals with an overview of current market conditions and emerging trends, the NMHC Student Housing Conference brings together leading owners, developers, lenders, brokers, and university partners. Topics include the state of the industry, recent deals, technology and student housing, capital market conditions, building or rehabilitating student properties, and dos and don'ts from the student's perspective.

The NMHC will release a comprehensive new research report at the event as well: An analysis of rent trends for on-campus housing costs at 160 universities and how they correlate to rental trends in the private student housing market.

More information and online registration is available at www.nmhc.org/goto/Student2008.
