Campus Living Centres was founded in 1989 with the purpose of assisting colleges and universities and with the planning, design, financing, and management of student housing and conference facilities. As the largest operator of student housing in Canada, Campus Living Centres (and our affiliated companies) has a portfolio of approximately 20,000 beds, which includes a combination of both managed and/or owned student housing developments.
Campus Living Centres’ (and our affiliated companies) current real estate portfolio is in excess of $600,000,000. We continue to work with our post-secondary partners to seek creative solutions designed to provide additional housing capacity, both on and off campus. Our financial strength and capacity ensures that we are leveraging our scale and securing the best overall value for all stakeholders.
Our team is comprised of over 600 dedicated, hardworking, and knowledgeable individuals. We understand the importance of having both a strong Property Support and local management team with the skills needed to lead, develop, and execute the goals and initiatives on behalf of our campus partners.
Campus Living Centres uses an integrated service delivery approach to student housing management that improves the financial performance of housing operations, while enhancing the student experience. As a result, we have been selected as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. This designation is considered a mark of excellence for Canadian owned and managed companies, and we are proud to be affiliated with a community that recognizes and celebrates Canadian business excellence.
Campus Living Centres was acquired in 2007 by Ivest Properties (owned by Richard Ivey and Hal Gould) and London Property Corp (owned by Ray Stanton). This ownership group added a significant number of owned student housing assets to our portfolio, thereby bringing together the largest owners of student housing assets in Canada, with the largest manager of on-campus student housing. We continue to work closely with our post-secondary partners who seek to provide a positive housing experience and at the same time deliver the desired financial results.
