More than 85% of students use online reviews to search for an apartment, according to J  Turner Research’s latest student housing research study.

This year, J Turner Research introduces quarterly student housing ORA (Online Reputation Assessment) Power Rankings.

The first edition of this series spotlights the top 100 student housing properties of 2017 by online reputation. To compile our rankings, we tracked more than 1,100 such developments nationwide across various review sites.
