“We find that many students are opting for off-campus housing this year that allows them to live in close proximity to their classes, but in a space that offers more opportunities for social distancing and having greater private space”. - Jeffrey Amengual, COO, DMG Investments
NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 23, 2020
With many colleges across the US resuming at least some of their on-campus classes this fall semester, Auden Living, a collection of off-campus student housing communities, is seeing an increase in resident applications. Off-campus student housing is typically “pre-leased” by students during the period of May-July prior to the new school year starting. Auden Living, owned by real estate developer DMG Investments, has housing communities serving universities including Cornell, Rice, SUNY Albany, University of Houston and University of South Carolina.
They have already seen 80% of their units leased for the coming school year, according to DMG Investments COO Jeffrey Amengual. “We find that many students are opting for off-campus housing this year that allows them to live in close proximity to their classes, but in a space that offers more opportunities for social distancing and having greater private space.”
Auden’s student housing complexes offer features that are particularly important to students during the COVID-19 pandemic such as private bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchens and in-unit washers and dryers. When the pandemic began, the building took strict measures to protect students, including closing common areas, constant disinfection of surfaces, and providing residents with free face masks and cleaning products that were difficult to buy through retail.
