Housing for Today’s Students

Developers, and students, opting for more practical approaches when it comes to housing.

The Standard at Flagstaff in Flagstaff, Ariz., is just one of nine student housing properties being delivered this month by the Athens, Ga.-based Landmark Properties.
Top developers are scrambling to build or renovate student housing properties that include the new top amenity students want.

“What’s different for us in 2019 is the inclusion of more dedicated study areas,” says J.J. Smith, president of CA Student Living, based in Chicago. “Study-oriented spaces are trending up while party and game lounges are trending down.”

After years of building exorbitant features like massive swimming pools with cabana service and elaborate party spaces, developers are focusing more on providing places where students study and work in groups, in addition to fitness and wellness spaces.

Students also are interested in housing designed to use less energy and water, according to leading developers.
