This year, supply has concentrated in a few select markets compared to 2016, according to data recently provided by real estate research firm Axiometrics. Of the top five universities that have the highest concentration of new off-campus bed supply, four are in Texas this year.
But in 2016, Texas represented just one of the top five universities to see the highest concentration of off-campus beds in their metropolitan statistical area (MSA) markets.
Louisiana State University, University of Florida, University of Maryland and Texas A&M rounded out the bottom four last year. University of Arkansas took the top spot in 2016.
Take a look at the five undergraduate schools where off-campus new deliveries are most highly concentrated in 2017.
