Win & Retain Students

Student housing sure has changed over the years. The expectations of the college living experience for both the student and the parent has gone from level 5 to 100. Cracker Jack box-sized student apartments have been overtaken by massive student “resorts” with amenities that rival 5-star hotels.

With the bar being lifted so high, it’s crucial for a student housing community to develop a brand and communication strategy that stands out from the rest. That’s where we come in.

Over the last decade, GRO has worked with student housing communities all over the country develop their identity and execute multi-channel marketing strategies that win and retain students.
