Texas A&M court moment, student housing dribbles past OklahomaTexas A&M court moment, student housing dribbles past Oklahomahttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=127292016-04-12T05:00:00Z2016-04-12T19:35:00Z

​​​​​​COLLEGE STATION - In one of the most anticipated Sweet 16 games, Texas A&M took on Oklahoma in a matchup of two former Big 12 rivals. While the basketball game was close, the difference in the two student housing markets is monumental.

A&M has done big things on the court since its move to the Southeastern Conference, which has coincided with its rise in the student housing market. 

The Aggies have seen the newest supply delivered of any market this development cycle (1,800 off-campus beds), with another 1,800 slated to come online for fall 2016.

While February 2016 preleasing is behind the February 2015 numbers by 5.3 percent, student housing demand is still outpacing supply at Texas A&M. 

With the volume of new students expected to increase in the coming years (enrollment was up 3.8 percent for fall 2015), we can expect performance to pick up in Aggieland. 

In contrast, Oklahoma has not seen a rise in student housing to accompany the rise of its basketball team. While 2,800 new off-campus beds have been delivered to OU since 2013, it has seen a major slowdown in its performance this year.

OU has seen just a 0.3 percent increase in annual effective rent growth since 2015, and February prelease is down 1.7 percent since 2015.
