Market Dominant Community
Cottage Row is the community of choice for Georgia Southern students. Always the first asset to lease, it routinely achieves the highest YOY rent growth in the market. The cottage-style units, best in market amenity package and student-exclusive, neighborhood feel of the community all make Cottage Row the widely recognized best place to live for students.
Exceptional Operating Fundamentals
The asset is always fully preleased and average occupancy has been over 99% for the last three years. The property realizes dramatic rent growth each year, with rents increasing 13.3% from the 22/23 academic year to the 23/24 academic year. There is still additional room for rent growth as the only other cottage-style property, The Hamptons, is nearly $100 higher per bed than Cottage Row.
Strong Market Occupancy
The supply and demand fundamentals in the Georgia Southern market are exceedingly strong. Market occupancy has consistently been over 95% with no new construction being introduced to the market since 2015. Currently, there is only one 600-bed community in the development pipeline.
Consistent Rental Demand Drivers
With only 4,475 on-campus beds and 7,362 off-campus beds to meet the needs of nearly 18,000 students, demand for housing exceeds available supply.
Attractive Southern Growth State
Georgia has a population of 10.95 million and has grown by 238,000 since the last census, an average annual increase of nearly 24,000 people. With the state’s high school graduation rate increasing 14.4% to 84% since 2012, demand on Georgia’s universities continues to grow.
HOPE Scholarship and 12-State Academic Common Market
Georgia offers participating states’ residents reciprocal in-state tuition rates for students, increasing demand at Georgia’s universities. Additionally, Georgia offers the HOPE scholarship to its residents which covers 100% of tuition for in-state students who achieve certain academic thresholds. The combination of these programs has led to a more than 6% growth in first-year freshman enrollment over the last 5 years.
Attractive Total Return Opportunity
A purchaser can expect to achieve an above market leveraged IRR of 14.5% over a 7-year hold period based on currently available market rate debt.
Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern University (Georgia Southern) is a four-year public research university and designated as a Carnegie R2 Research institution.

As the state's largest and most comprehensive institution of higher education south of Atlanta, Georgia Southern is an integral component of the local economy.
Georgia Southern University's Statesboro Campus boasts an on-campus housing capacity of 4,475 across seven residential buildings, leaving approximately 13,263 students in need of off campus housing.
