B&D Partners with UT Austin on Student Housing P3

July 19, 2023

A request for qualifications (RFQ) has been issued for a private partner to redevelop a residence hall targeting freshmen students at University of Texas at Austin.

On behalf of the university, the 2033 Higher Education Development Foundation (2033 Fund) is seeking a developer to design, build, and potentially finance, operate, and/or maintain the student accommodation.

Located at Whitis Court residence hall, the new development will replace the six buildings on the site that currently contain a combined 210 beds.

As well as maximizing the density of the site, the developer may also have potential to provide a dining facility as part of the development.

Interested parties have until August 7, 2023 to submit their responses to the RFQ, which can be acquired from Taylor Thompson via email

Development advisory firm Brailsford & Dunlavey is working with the 2033 Fund on the project.

"The leadership and information from B&D, and the clarity with which they provide it, brings added credibility to the process and ensures that a range of university stakeholders, including senior leadership and our board, are fully informed for – and confident in – their required decision making.”
