Student housing is an essential cornerstone of student life for any college or university. As students are often not fully employed, they can especially benefit from more affordable housing. In addition, student housing gives students the opportunity to mingle and form communities with their peers in ways that are not possible in traditional housing units. Universities are full of both locals and students from distant countries or continents, who are yearning for new friends and experiences, which student housing helps to facilitate. About 63 percent of all student housing consists of private rooms rather than apartments or shared rooms.
There are several major corporations that control a significant share of the student housing market. American Campus Communities is the largest and most powerful of these, owning over 100 thousand student beds in the United States, and 169 properties. The company generated about 829 million dollars in revenue in 2018, and 117 million dollars in net income.
