The era of digital disruption has influenced the way students live and study as much as it has changed the way they shop or socialize. New generations of students seek more than stylized amenities, as student demographic trends reflect a growing interest in housing accommodations that support academic success over leisure comforts. In this age of design and build revolution, how are developers approaching the demand for student communities that provide digital connections, authenticity and affordability while also maintaining development costs and schedules? There is no such thing as a cookie-cutter design in this fast-evolving design space. From balancing cost, design, technology and the ever-changing demand of students, this panel of experts will share the ways they are collaborating with developers to manage all the moving and competing priorities that deliver customized buildings with the latest amenities.
