Expand your capacity to serve students.

The public-private partnership (P3) model is helping today’s most forward-thinking institutions focus on their core competencies while delivering the best possible experience for their students. A privatized approach to student housing preserves your debt capacity, while bringing a wide range of benefits across all facets of the project.

It became clear to us that this project was going to be very big, complex and expensive, and that the best way to do it would be in partnership with a company that had depth and expertise in these kinds of projects. ACC has developed a relationship with us that I don’t think anyone could have foreseen in terms of its scale, impact and strategic importance to us.
