Financing

American Campus has secured or assisted in securing more than $8.8 billion in student housing financing proceeds for our own account and our third-party clients. We've utilized the following transaction structures to finance the development of modern housing for our university clients:
  • American Campus Equity (ACE®)
  • Project-based, tax-exempt bonds
  • Taxable leasehold mortgage
  • ACC equity sale to university
  • University financed

Each of the financing alternatives above offers our higher education clients a different set of advantages and drawbacks. ACC is the only company in our sector to successfully structure transactions and deliver projects utilizing each of the five alternatives. ACC does not advocate any single financing alternative. Rather we approach each project independently and analyze the merits of all financing options with you, permitting the university to choose one that best meets its objectives related to credit treatment, balance sheet treatment, cash flow and operational control issues.
