National student housing leader recognized in Real Estate & Housing category for third year in a row

[AUSTIN, TEXAS] MARCH 27, 2024 - American Campus Communities (ACC), the nation’s largest owner, manager, and developer of student housing communities, has been named second on Newsweek’s list of Most Trustworthy Companies in America 2024. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The Most Trustworthy Companies in America 2024 have been chosen based on a holistic approach to evaluating trust. The three main public pillars of trust were considered: customer trust, investor trust, and employee trust.

The analysis followed a 3-step process:

  • Step 1 -- Market Definition: All companies headquartered in the US with a revenue of over $500 million were considered in the study.
  • Step 2 – Extensive survey Based on an independent survey of about 25,000 U.S. residents who rated companies they know in terms of all three touch points of trust. A total of 97,000 evaluations of companies were submitted.
  • Step 3 – Social Listening Based on what was said about a company in various media segments of the internet and evaluating whether it was positive, neutral, or negative. In total, over 523,000 mentions were gathered.


“We believe in putting people first and doing the right thing. That means taking care of our team members, delivering an exceptional experience for our residents and partners, giving back to our communities, and protecting our planet,” said Rob Palleschi, CEO of American Campus Communities. “We are honored to be recognized for the trust we’ve earned from those we work with and serve every day.”


ACC’s recognition for a third year in a row as one of the top 700 most trustworthy companies across 23 industries is a testament to the company’s steadfast commitment to exceptional value, customer service, industry innovation, and superior organizational leadership within the student housing industry. The company creates communities that are purpose-built with the environment, amenities, and resources students need to succeed, both academically and personally. ACC has also been recognized in the past as a 2023 National Association of Homebuilders Property Management Firm of the Year and has earned accolades and industry awards for its positive culture and reputation, one being the 2023 GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum CRE’s Great Places to Work award.
