COCM Improves Interactive Tool that Takes the Mystery out of Student Housing Demand


A free tool helping institutions better align student housing with recruitment and retention goals.

COCM (Capstone On-Campus Management) announced today the upcoming release of a new and improved Student Housing Calculator ( In addition to helping housing professionals predict demand for housing on their campuses, the new edition of the Student Housing Calculator allows users to run multiple reports, edit and manipulate data, and view the impacts small changes have on demand. This dynamic tool helps administrators plan the future of student housing on their campuses. The enhanced Calculator will be released October 13th, in conjunction with the NACAS C3X conference in Orlando, FL.

Initially offered to the public in 2016 as a way for COCM to say “thank you” to its campus partners, the Student Housing Calculator is a time-tested, interactive, web-based number cruncher that uses COCM’s proprietary formulas to analyze past and current enrollment patterns, housing yields, and occupancy trends and provide a long-term (10-year) projection of future housing demand. This allows institutions to better align student housing with recruitment and retention goals. Housing professionals simply enter easily-accessible institutional data and in return receive a long-term housing demand report customized for their campus.

The Student Housing Calculator is available for anyone to use at In addition, users can request a free, no-obligation conference call with COCM’s student housing professionals to discuss the results of their custom analysis. COCM will host a webinar, open to all who are interested, to demonstrate the Student Housing Calculator on November 6, 2018. Visit for details and to register for the webinar.
