COCM Releases Guidelines for Student Housing Managers Re-Opening in Fall

Birmingham-based student housing advisory and management firm Capstone On-Campus Management (COCM) has released a roadmap to reopening student housing properties this fall.

The firm, which manages more than 37,000 student housing beds on 38 campuses across the country, has researched best practices and identified solutions to reduce risk and promote good physical health for students moving into its communities this fall.

“COCM’s highest priority is caring for our student residents and personnel,” said Doug Brown, president at COCM. “To this end, the leadership of COCM has developed a re-opening plan and communicated these best practices to site and home office personnel to reduce the likelihood of potential virus outbreaks.”

The roadmap, which addresses occupancy management, preparation of facilities, adjustments to amenity use, move-in day considerations, and changes to daily operating procedures can be viewed here.
