All the content linked below is offered free of charge or commitment and is intended to be an engaging resource to improve professional knowledge and practices in student housing.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

Student Housing Calculator

COCM’s proprietary Student Housing Calculator (SHC) was created in response to one of the most often-asked questions by student housing leaders – How many beds will I need on my campus in the future? This tool allows you to input your institution’s enrollment data, bed counts, and trends and then provides you a projection of your housing demand for the next 10 years. Check it out! (And please call us if you have any questions.)

Student Housing Matters

A place for all interested in student housing to engage, the blog is an informal arena where any professional can share an idea, post an opinion, pose a question, or share a response to another post. Posts typically related to current trends, issues, or ideas in student housing, but any student-related topic is fair game. Please join us and share your insight!
