Development & Construction

Our portfolio features a variety of communities at our nation's top universities. Each community is designed to uniquely fit the personality, setting, and needs of each university and its intended residents. Our projects include a wide range of construction types, from four-story wood-frame buildings in low-density settings to high-rise concrete and steel structures on urban in-fill sites.

Becoming an industry leader requires understanding residents and their needs, and that’s precisely what Greystar does to provide the best residential experience possible. Carrying this focus through all we do and with all of our partners, Greystar consistently leads the student housing industry in management services.

Greystar offers a wide range of financing options (tax exempt bonds, equity, university financing), so we can find a financing solution that aligns interests and can even help boost your university's credit rating.

We use our own equity through our innovative The ONE Planâ„ , which allows colleges and universities to develop and revitalize campus housing while preserving their funds and debt capacity for other campus projects. With The ONE Planâ„ , the university or college has one partner and one equity source.
