2017 Student Housing Market Analysis

In October 2016, the University of Maryland engaged Brailsford & Dunlavey to complete a student housing market analysis to supplement the University’s 2014 On-Campus Student Housing Strategic Plan. The goals of the market analysis were to understand how the changes in the off-campus market impact UMD’s housing, quantify unmet demand for on-campus housing, and recommend housing concepts that help advance the University’s mission. Key to this assessment, B&D sought to provide a values-based, data-driven analysis that guides UMD in identifying opportunities to enhance the residential student experience through strategic facility projects while enhancing Living-Learning Program opportunities.
