In all states except Berlin and Brandenburgthis orientation phase is embedded into the program of the secondary schools. The decision for a secondary school influences the student's future, but during this phase changes can be made more easily. In practice this rarely comes to bear because teachers are afraid of sending pupils to more academic schools whereas parents are afraid of sending their children to less academic schools.
National The student housing finance industry has grown in the last two decades. Student housing now accommodates 7 percent of the U. More young people attend college than ever before—more than 20 million students are enrolled in college today, most of them attending classes full-time.
Female and foreign students are fueling growth in this market. Additionally, more than two-thirds of high school graduates attend college. The student housing market sector has gone from utilitarian dorms to housing with fitness centers, meeting rooms and theaters.
But the industry is still faced with the challenge of getting capital flowing so it can be the market segment that investors look at first. Better economic footing, as well as confidence and job growth, will certainly help, as will the banks repairing their balance sheets. However, to attract more capital, work needs to be done to develop more standards and have market data for off-campus housing.
Freddie Mac is an active participant in this effort. A second need is market data. How much capital is needed? Where is it needed the most? What kind of housing structures are being built—and how far away from the campus? Are there more rentals by-the-bed or by-the-unit? We need more—and certainly better—data.
The development and implementation of standards has been executed in other real estate sectors, and the same can be done for student housing. Seniors housing went through this process and came up with standards.
The result is that industry players now have a common understanding of terms such as independent living, assisted care, mental care, skilled medical care and continuing care communities. Because of this work, seniors housing has become an established, distinct segment within the multifamily market.
Student housing will benefit by following this same process. If it does, expect more and diverse forms of capital to come into the market and support growth. Freddie Mac is already supportive of the student housing market, with staff dedicated to financing off-campus housing.
