Student Housing

We represent developers and lenders on a regular basis in connection with student housing projects across the country.  Our group counsels our student housing clients on a wide range of matters, including, but not limited to:

  • Land acquisition
  • Equity and debt financing
  • Construction
  • Zoning and land use approvals

We assist our clients through the process of responding to requests for proposals, negotiating and finalizing affiliation agreements, and fostering working relationships with universities for the development of affiliated student housing. Our clients have also seen opportunities in the public private partnership model for student housing, and we are constantly staying informed of emerging trends and strategies in the housing industry. Repeat business is a common theme for all of our Multifamily Housing Industry Team’s work. As an example, we’ve closed student housing deals totaling over $1 billion for one repeat client.  We are proud that our clients continue to trust us to provide the type of high quality service they demand.

  • Acquisition and disposition

  • Condominium structure documentation
