The Evolving Landscape of Student Housing

It used to be that students would automatically live on campus when they went away to college. Today's students, including the tail end of the "echo boomers" (children born through the 1990s who are offspring of baby boomers), are looking for more privacy and increased quality of living conditions than is available in traditional on-campus housing. Both parents and students today have much more disposable income than their predecessors, meaning they are looking for an experience close to the dorm life (with access to all of the culture and activities that college brings) but with additional amenities and a more private environment.

At the same time that the needs and wants of students are changing, the cost of a college degree has skyrocketed - rising 27% in the five years prior to 2013, and a big chunk of that expense is eaten up by dorm fees. Over the past few years colleges have raised housing rates by anywhere between two and five percent (for example Eastern Michigan University raised their housing costs by five percent and meal plans by four percent in 2015). In some cases students are actually paying as much as or more for dorms than for tuition. This crisis is driving even more students than ever away from on-campus housing and into private alternatives.
