Student

Living and learning reimagined

As an industry pioneer, student living is at the foundation of who we are as an organization. We know the industry, the environment and what students want. We’re meticulous, focused and we consistently deliver above-market returns. What sets us apart is our ability to identify opportunities, differentiate products and maximize long-term value and resident satisfaction.

A scalable, best-in-class model

CA was founded in 2004 as a niche investor and operator of student apartments near large, top-tier universities. We differentiated our position in the market by introducing a model for core-infill, pedestrian-oriented student housing in campus-adjacent locations. While each community is tailored to the unique needs of the local market, our strategy has proven scalability that has established CA as a leader in purpose-built student accommodations, globally.

Approach

Fully integrated student living solutions

CA’s comprehensive, in-house real estate investment, development and operational capabilities allow us to consistently deliver student communities and experiences that set the curve in their respective markets. From test fits to move-in day, our dedicated teams of technical experts are in lockstep⁠ — providing discrete perspectives centered around a common goal. This level of collaboration, control and transparency throughout the process yields sustainable investment performance and resident satisfaction. Pairing our vertically integrated platform with regional PBSA expertise, we have successfully implemented this approach to strategic markets in Europe and Latin America.

United States

Our extensive market knowledge and data-driven approach for acquiring and developing student housing assets has made CA one of the leading student housing providers in the nation. Our robust and expansive portfolio reflects our hyper-focused investment strategy: superior products pedestrian to large, tier 1 universities with strong academics and enrollment trends.

Europe

With a dedicated European headquarters in London, CA has been a leader in the rapid growth of the purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) sector. We have more than 1,500 beds operating or under construction in Krakow, Poland, and the U.K. cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Sheffield. CA is in active negotiations to acquire additional properties and development sites throughout both countries, as well as Ireland, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands.

Latin America

We tailor our tried-and-true approach and vertically integrated platform to meet the unique needs of the Latin American market. Through collaborative partnerships with local stakeholders and investment partners in each country, we have introduced high-caliber, first-in-market student accommodations to serve the growing number of young adults who are living away from home while pursuing a postsecondary education.
