Bisnow Annual Student Housing Conference

Join us for our biggest student housing conference of the year this June!

With $9.65B in student housing sales volume last year, investors are increasingly flocking to this sector even as cap rates compress and the challenges of finding premium land grow. 

With construction financing costs, interest rate uncertainties and an influx of new developers and investors in the industry, see what challenges are on the horizon and what opportunities remain as the space begins to move to become a more "conventional" asset class. 

Hear from the top owners, developers, investors, universities and more at our most exciting student housing event of the year!
