Austin, Texas, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Campus Advantage®, a leader in student housing, providing property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development services, today announced it has taken over management of The Edge - a 168-unit, 524-bed student housing property located in Lafayette, Louisiana, near the University of Louisiana - Lafayette.


Built in 2007, The Edge is a garden-style community featuring two, three, and four-bedroom floor plans. All units include bed/bath parity, wood-style flooring, black appliances, a black furniture package, upgraded cabinets, and a washer and dryer. Property amenities include a pool, movie theater, car wash, fitness center, business center, and a study lounge.  The Edge has a strong reputation in the market and is currently the only property to offer a free, private shuttle bus to and from campus.

Campus Advantage was sought after to manage The Edge because of the student housing leader’s integrated marketing expertise. The property is currently transitioning to a digital marketing strategy with an increased focus on the student experience and together with Catalyst, an Austin-based agency specializing in creative marketing for student and multifamily housing, Campus Advantage will implement integrated digital marketing campaigns to help drive traffic for the next leasing season. Catalyst will design a new website and refresh the brand, plus implement aggressive digital strategies to increase the property’s online presence.

“We are very excited to manage The Edge and bring our value-add, branding and property management expertise, as well as our exceptional operations team and training programs, to this property,” said Madison Meier, Vice President of Business Development for Campus Advantage. “As one of the top properties in Lafayette, we look forward to not only enhancing the overall living experience for The Edge’s current and future residents, but to continue to enhance the property’s appeal in the market as well.”

Under Campus Advantage management, The Edge will benefit from new programs that deliver a resident-focused experience that inspires and equips residents to thrive in all areas of life. This includes Campus Advantage’s Students First® program, which is designed to ensure students have more opportunities to achieve success both now and in the future.
