Why This Matters

Student housing and educational real estate development have been a hot-button issue across the country. With universities constantly looking to expand and update their properties to attract new incoming students, many universities are having to work with both public and private entities to realize their dreams. Regardless of city, there is a constant struggle for space and price, and Seattle is no expectation.

The University District in Seattle is a perfect example of this struggle. Home to the University of Washington campus, the district has seen significant interest from both student housing owners and builders. Marc Stiles of the Puget Sound Business Journal writes, “Student housing long has been a driver in the U District, home of the 46,000-student University of Washington. Now that the neighborhood has been upzoned to allow significantly taller buildings, interest is ratcheting up.

Upzoning neighborhoods could have a disastrous effect for those universities look to expand their campuses. The highly sought-after land will go for the highest bitter. Universities and real estate developers need plan ahead if they aim to realize their goals.
