We care about all aspects of a student’s college life
At B.HOM Student Living, we care about all aspects of a student’s college life, and every day we strive to provide a great, safe and memorable living experience that nurtures both academic and personal growth. Ranked one of the top managers in the country, our organization is singularly focused on student living and has a long-standing track record in managing purpose-built private bedroom/bathroom properties as well as full-service residence halls. B.HOM Student Living owns and manages approximately 18,000 beds across 16 states and 34 distinct universities. To everyone at B.HOM Student Living, our properties are not merely a place to sleep, rather they are active and vibrant living-learning communities. Our dedicated teams help our student-residents get the most (and more) out of everything that college life has to offer.
Clients are in very good hands with B.HOM Student Living’s team of accountants and internal audit experts. Through our centralized center in Des Moines, IA, clients receive detailed monthly financial packages that include a range of reports. On a quarterly and annual basis, we deliver a partnership level report for each asset as well as a roll up at the fund level. Our technology capabilities enable the electronic exchange of information between our managed properties, the accounting center and our clients. The accounting team also interfaces electronically with banking institutions. Our financial services are also supported by on-going software training and a help desk to aid onsite property management staff with accounting activities.
In addition to providing all types of financial reporting, our professionals conduct random audits at the property level to correct deficiencies. When audits and reviews uncover irregularities, investigations are conducted to uncover discrepancies.
Entrata by Property Solutions powers B.HOM Student Living’s technology infrastructure. This specialized and fully integrated platform is built to accommodate the specific operational needs of student housing.
Entrata genuinely speeds up everything from the time a student applies online until they move in. The system even allows our operators to post transactions to accounting ledgers, removing previously arduous steps from the process. Communications are also a breeze since Entrata sends work orders and renewal blasts with ease. With this hassle-free, all-encompassing system, students have a greater opportunity to remain focused on what matters most – their studies.
Entrata gives our in-house experts everything they need to be more efficient and boost your bottom line. It truly makes the difference in our properties.
B.HOM’s Human Resources Department recognizes that we are only as strong as each individual employee. As such, we recruit and hire top talent within all levels of the organization by employing dedicated recruiting professionals who actively source jobs through top advertising sources, social media, job fairs and on-campus recruiting. We demonstrate how we value our long-term employees by providing a strong benefits package including medical, dental, vision and life insurance, tuition reimbursement, Section 125 Plans, and 401(k) programs. Our Human Resource Generalists assist with onboarding and orientation and help coordinate company-wide employee reward and recognition programs aimed at retention.
Each employee is assigned a dedicated HR strategic partner to assist with all of their HR-related needs – it’s how we put the “human” in Human Resources, and how we ensure that our talent base is filled with tenured members who add insurmountable value for our clients.
Without the right messaging, even the most impressive student community is reduced to an example of unfulfilled potential and missed opportunity. B.HOM Student Living’s brand development team creates a strong identity that resonates with the target demographic.
Our marketing team tests and uses the newest technology to communicate with prospective and existing residents and employ specialists in areas such as social media, search engine optimization, website administration and paid search. Our one-of-a-kind Online Marketing Book allows on-site staff immediate access to marketing ideas and materials while our in-house graphic design team prepares customized marketing materials. In addition, marketing supports the on-site teams by providing marketing and leasing plans, assisting with relationship-building resident events and analyzing advertising performance.
To make sure we are on the right track, B.HOM Student Living will use surveys to evaluate residents’ needs and satisfaction levels and make proactive adjustments when needed. We will make them feel connected to their community and proud of belonging to something unique.
