Cushman & Wakefield’s Byron Moger is the firm’s expert in student housing projects, so when University of South Florida announced plans for an upscale, mixed-use housing village, he was the perfect person to comment on the project and growing trend in dorm living.
Universities nationwide are building luxury dorms that compete directly with higher cost, off-campus housing with amenities found at resorts and spas.
“Clearly universities are competing for students, and they can’t really compete on price,” said Moger. “They can compete based on the quality of services they offer to students.”
The Pinstripe PR team connected him with Anastasia Dawson, a staff writer at the Tampa Tribune, to discuss the trends and what we can expect over the next several years as campus life continues to evolve in this Sunday cover story.
