Abstract:This paper explores the relationship between student rental housing and other submarkets. I use Champaign-Urbana, Illinois as my case study area — home to the flagship University of Illinois campus. I examine university enrollment data from 1980 to 2018 to track demographic changes in the student population. Then I use decennial census and American Community Survey 5-year estimates from 1990 on to determine the spatial distribution of student renters over time. Finally, I examine shifts in the distribution of rents to determine how the movement of students has affected what Champaign-Urbana’s landlords charge across the metropolitan area.
