Student Housing 201: 2004-2006 Rent Growth in 64 College Towns

  • As many of the 75 million children of the Baby Boomers—call them “Echo Boomers” (those born between 1976 and 1994)—head off to college this decade, university enrollment is increasing across the country.

    As a result, many apartment firms see a desirable market niche—providing housing for college students.  Given the great potential of the student housing niche, the National Multifamily Housing Council has published a series of research reports to help apartment firms better understand the dynamics of this sector.   This 2006 report is the fourth report in that series.

    This 2006 report leads us back to the 64 college towns we examined two years ago in Student Housing 101: Where are the Opportunities? to determine what kind of rent growth the properties in those markets have recorded between 2004 and 2006.

    In addition to this general analysis of those findings, this report offers a detailed market profile of each of the 64 markets surveyed.  These market profiles include:Demographic information for the total apartment market from the 2000 Census;University enrollment trend information; andA snapshot of the off-campus student apartment market, including the average age of properties studied and the rent distribution by unit type.
