The Raleigh MSA has a population of 1,388,381 million, and is projected to increase by 155,755 by 2024, reflecting a 2.1 percent annual population growth. The Raleigh MSA features an average household income of $100,233 and a median household income of $75,374. Over the next five years, median household income is expected to increase by 12.1 percent.5 Raleigh is nationally recognized as a leading urban center. With Durham and Chapel Hill, Raleigh anchors the Research Triangle, a major center in the U.S. for high-tech and biotech research. The top companies in the region — including IBM, Cisco Systems and SAS Institute — are among the country’s best employers. They also lead the way in hiring new graduates of the University.

The University, sometimes referred to as "NC State", is a public research university established in 1887. NC State is the largest four- year institution in North Carolina and is separated into 10 different colleges including Agriculture and Life Sciences, Design, Education, Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, Management, Natural Resources, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Textiles, and Veterinary Medicine. The University offers bachelor’s degrees in 106 fields; master’s in 104 fields; and doctorates in 61 fields. Current enrollment is nearly 36,000 undergradute and graduate students in addition to more than 9,000 faculty and staff.

The University has been implementing a 2025 Enrollment Plan that calls for enrollment growth to 38,700 by 2025 (13.8 percent growth). In addition to enrollment growth, this long-range plan aims to improve the quality and standing of the University's academic programs, enhance the success of students, increase globalization engagement, enhance diversity, and develop new academic programs.

Over the past decade, the student housing industry has experienced significant growth. As the student population has grown, specialized student housing developers have stepped in and built off-campus housing alternatives, with many offering leasing-by-the-bedroom formats, luxury amenities tailored to student needs, roommate matching, and individual leases backed by parental guarantees, which allow the student/parents to be responsible solely for their student’s rent and any delinquent rent of roommates.

Today’s student renters typically grow up in their family home with their own bedroom and many times their own bathroom. Due to this current trend, parents and students visiting on-campus housing are often disappointed to find older buildings made from dated materials with little to no privacy. Because on-campus housing is suffering from aged facilities and deferred maintenance, on-campus occupancy rates have declined in many markets and students eligible to live off-campus are seeking more modern and private alternative living arrangements. New communities are being built to meet the demands of today’s students, in many cases offering private bedrooms and bathrooms, wireless high-speed internet access throughout, computer labs, tanning beds, theater rooms, large resort style swimming pools and hot tubs, and many more appealing amenities.

In addition, the student housing sector is perceived as “recession resistant” due to its performance during the Great Recession.1 The primary driver of student housing is college enrollment, and when the economy loses jobs it tends to gain students. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), U.S. enrollment in post-secondary education grew by 4.7 percent in 2008 and 6.3 percent in 2009, the highest growth years since at least 1981. At the same time, demand for student housing increased, and the performance of the student housing industry rose.
