Morgan Li Student Housing Webinar with Roomy & Core Spaces

The Secrets to Creating Unforgettable Student Living Experiences


In today’s student housing environment, experience is everything—and every detail matters. On-campus, off-campus, it doesn’t matter if it’s sophomores or seniors; students expect more from spaces. Whether that’s something a bit more exciting than a lofted double or an apartment built to leave a lasting impression, today’s students crave something different. Something bigger. A launchpad.

But it takes a special focus to elevate living—and create an unforgettable experience.

That’s why we’re thrilled to be a part of some recent projects at USC, UIUC, USF, and Auburn, projects that brought combined unique vision, modular design, and custom furniture to create something special for students.
