Almost 1,300 leaders from across all facets of the student housing industry joined together in Austin this week for the 10th annual InterFace Student Housing conference, held at the J.W. Marriott.

The conference comes to a close today after two and a half days of networking and panel sessions on a range of topics from the state of student housing development, to trends on- and off-campus and the present and future of the industry.

If there is one takeaway from this year’s conference, it is that the industry is as robust as ever. Institutional capital continues to flood into the space, rental rates are on the rise and demand for new supply continues to be seen.
