Entrata Student Named Management Brain of Trinitas

Trinitas, owner, investor, developer, builder and manager of nearly $300 million in student housing assets consisting of more than 2,800 student housing beds, has chosen Entrata Student as its designated property management software provider.

“Our driving force behind the selection of Entrata was to enlist a system and partner that would better serve the nuanced needs of student housing,” said Mark Larson, Chief Financial Officer of Trinitas. “That approach was intensified to also find a partner that was actively improving and eliciting feedback on their product for future innovations in the space. Entrata was the platform and the partner we were looking for.”

Entrata Student is a software tool designed to specifically meet the unique needs of student housing operators. It allows the company to improve forecasting, keep organized when turning beds and enables online lease signing and automated renewals.

“Entrata Student is an integrated, cohesive platform that drives us to perform better in resident management, leasing, marketing and turnover,” said Larson. “Having an integrated system for all of those management functions allows us to exploit synergies in our information to make better decisions more quickly.”

Entrata Student leverages the power of Entrata Core to incorporate Trinitas’ property accounting, purchasing, facilities, and leasing data into one comprehensive property management system.

“On the analytics front, our property and portfolio analytics take less time to generate and process through the simplicity of Entrata data extracts,” said Larson. “Quite simply – all parts of our management business have become quicker, more productive and more accurate.”

In addition, it houses all of Trinitas’ resident management information, and provides instant feedback on important metrics such as occupancy, leads, traffic follow-up and countless other quick-look metrics that are important to running Trinitas’ business.

“At the site level, our efficiency and effectiveness in prospect follow-up has been phenomenal,” said Larson. “We have seen an approximate 40 percent increase in our follow-up schedule through the automation of that process within our Entrata system.”

Entrata allows its users free access to the data collected in the system, enabling Trinitas the ability to easily extract data out of the system for portfolio metrics analyzed by its executive team and investors.

“As a company, our entire site and corporate management team rely on Entrata as the management brain of our organization,” said Larson. “From a Vice President analyzing leasing trends, a leasing agent performing follow-up and a maintenance technician being notified of a work order – Entrata works efficiently across our entire organization.”

The Trinitas Difference

LAFAYETTE, IN (August 11, 2015) Trinitas is a premier owner, investor, developer, builder and manager of high-quality commercial real estate and student housing communities. With two generations of Kings at the helm, Trinitas draws on its exceptional heritage, commitment to excellence and core business integrity to ensure the firm’s position at the forefront of the industry. As an established leader in the student living space, Trinitas relies on the company’s team of accomplished veterans who understand the key facets of the industry and are able to effectively develop their properties and those of their partners. What sets Trinitas apart from other student housing companies is that they also rely on input and expertise from the students within the markets that they serve. This is The Trinitas Difference.

One of the ways that Trinitas sets itself apart from competitors is through their unique student property naming contest. Dub the Digs is a month-long naming contest which gives students an opportunity to leave their legacy by naming the student housing community being developed by Trinitas in their market. The student who enters the winning name, as decided upon by the company’s executive team, receives $5000 cash and public recognition for their contribution. Since the inception of Dub the Digs, three students at the University of Alabama, University of Arkansas and University at Nebraska—Lincoln have been awarded $15,000 for their prize winning names.

“At Trinitas, we believe that a student’s living environment has an impact on learning,” said Alie Hrabe, Vice President, Marketing and Leasing. “Everything from the design and amenities of our communities to our residence life program is focused on providing a positive experience for our student residents. The Trinitas Difference begins with the naming of our properties by university students and continues through every aspect of the property. At Trinitas, our ultimate goal is to ensure that each resident is more successful by having lived at one of our communities.”

Another way the company exemplifies The Trinitas Difference is through their partnership with Indiana University (IU). For the past three semesters Travis Vencel, Vice President of Development at Trinitas, has collaborated with IU’s Department of Kinesiology to develop the Matrix Fitness Project. Through this project, Travis challenges IU students to design a college housing fitness area that encompasses what students want and what they need to be healthy, while also staying within budget constraints. Students are asked to analyze and present information related to the use of student technology habits while working out as well as improve Matrix cardio consoles by including creative entertainment ideas in their design.

“Trinitas Ventures cares about what students want in their living areas,” said Carol Kennedy-Armbruster, PhD. “I was impressed that Trinitas personnel sought out my kinesiology students input on designing the fitness and wellness areas of their living units. Students seek real life learning experiences and appreciate the opportunity to contribute to building healthy college communities. Trinitas values student input which makes our collaboration a win-win for both of our organizations. They not only build living quarters, they create experiences that meet student needs.”

Trinitas also enlists help from students in the area of design. In 2012, the company partnered with Herron’s Basile Center for Art, Design and Public Life to enhance one of their student housing communities, 1201 Indiana, through public art. Several students from the Fine Art Center presented to Trinitas, as well as Indianapolis stakeholders, and the distinguished group selected a sculpture, Moving Forward, by Brett Harbour. Harbour, a senior and fine arts major at the time, said, “Something that stood out to me at 1201 Indiana Avenue was the commitment to community and the progressive environment that Trinitas developed. The atmosphere at 1201 Indiana seems designed to promote continual study and wellbeing for the community.” Harbour went on to design a second art piece at LUX, Trinitas’ student housing community in Chapel Hill, which opened in 2014.

Although The Trinitas Difference is apparent via the company’s community names, fitness areas and design, it is perhaps most evident through the company’s Community Assistant (C.A.) program. As a community assistant, student residents are exposed to dynamic and diverse opportunities that can serve as platforms for their career. They are responsible for delivering superior service to residents as well as fostering strong communities that contribute to positive living experiences. Through this program, student residents work directly with residents to forge connections that build an engaging residential community and a flawless housing experience. The purpose of the C.A. program, as well as the various other opportunities that Trinitas offers, is to ensure that both employees and residents are more successful by having lived at a Trinitas community. This is The Trinitas Difference.

Trinitas is a fully integrated student housing company that finances, develops, constructs and manages high quality student housing communities at major universities throughout the United States. Trinitas currently owns and manages $300 million in student housing assets consisting of more than 4,000 student housing beds. The privately held real estate development company is currently developing over $215 million in student housing assets consisting of over 3,650 beds for 2015 and 2016 completion. Trinitas is headquartered in Lafayette, Indiana. Learn more about Trinitas at www.trinitas.ventures.

Axiometrics, Trinitas Make a Deal on Student Housing Data

Lafayette, IN (August 9, 2013) – Trinitas Ventures LLCa>, The ability of developers and investors to access accurate data on student housing communities may have taken a big leap forward. Student housing developer Trinitas Ventures and Axiometrics Inc., a Dallas-based research firm that tracks the US apartment market, have reached terms for Axiometrics to acquire Trinitas’ comprehensive student housing market research database. That data set includes information on about 130 student housing markets, more than 3,200 properties, 500,000 units and 1 million beds.

“We recognized that one of the major problems that plagued the student housing industry has been the lack of standardized reporting,” says Kelli Smith, student housing project manager for the Axiometrics. They first began tracking REIT-owned properties and eventually built an extensive catalogue of student housing data on over 200 university communities that helped provide standardized reporting and forecasting for the sector.

“Previously, companies were really left to do their research in-house,” she explains. “Now that we’re out there, they can rely on our much more comprehensive research.”

The Lafayette, IN-based Trinitas also wanted to develop the type of rental, sales and vacancy data more available to developers of office, industrial, multifamily and retail properties. “Anytime they wanted to determine the health of a market,” Smith says, “they’d send a person out to make a survey” and then incorporate the information into a proprietary database. “They’ve been doing this for quite awhile,” Smith adds, “and although I’m sure some of their data will overlap with our own, it’s still going to increase dramatically our ability to serve our clients.”

Trinitas finances, develops, constructs and manages student housing communities at major universities throughout the United States. They currently own and manage about $350 million in student housing assets consisting of more than 5,000 beds. Trinitas has also financed more than $80 million in student housing through the third quarter of 2013. They will complete over $100 million in student housing assets with over 1,400 beds by the fall of 2013.

“We have used our proprietary market research to find great development opportunities and also to avoid investments in markets that are revealed as unhealthy upon a deeper investigation,” explains Loren King, chief executive officer for Trinitas. “Now, what has been our strategic advantage will be available to Axiometrics’ clients.”

Private Housing Goes to School

Lafayette, IN (November 1, 2012) – PNC has teamed up with a visionary developer to deliver student housing that is affordable, comfortable and creates a sense of community that enhances the college experience.

Students at three major universities have attractive new housing options thanks to Trinitas Ventures LLC of West Lafayette, Indiana and to financing provided by PNC. Trinitas is a premier developer, owner and manager of high quality commercial real estate, specializing in student housing and mixed-use communities at leading universities throughout the United States.

The developer’s innovative concept puts first-class private housing within walking distance of classrooms. Offering competitive rental rates, these projects feature student-friendly designs, including a floor plan that separates bedrooms from common areas for increased noise control and privacy. Additionally, each offers a high level of amenities including a club house, workout facility, swimming pool and business center.

The 667-bed, 1201 Indiana, mixed-use development at Indiana University-Purdue University (IUPUI) in downtown Indianapolis will help transform IUPUI into a close-knit, urban college community when it opens in August 2011. Trinitas teamed up with Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, Chicago, Illinois, to develop and manage this $100 million joint venture, which presented a unique opportunity to bring private housing on to campuses like IUPUI.

Also opening soon is The Collegiate, a four-story, student-oriented urban apartment community in Richmond, VA. It will serve Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), one of the largest and fastest-growing universities in the state. As VCU transitions rapidly from a commuter school into a residential university, the development will help to accommodate the growing number of full-time students.

The 668-bed project known as The Village at Muller Park in Bloomington, Indiana was the first of the three developments financed by PNC. It opened in 2008 near Indiana University in a 35-acre park-like setting with dedicated conservation and recreational areas.

“Our focus is on identifying high quality student housing development opportunities and providing top quality service to our investors, clients, and residents,” said Loren King, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of Trinitas.

With a vision like that, it’s not surprising that Trinitas was named one of the top owners within the student housing industry for 2010 according to the November/December 2010 issue of Student Housing Business.

Trinitas Ventures CEO Mediates Panel Discussion on New Product and Development Trends in Student Housing

West Lafayette, IN (April 20, 2011) – Loren King, CEO of Trinitas Ventures LLC, a fully integrated student housing company, was appointed Moderator for the discussion panel New Products and Development Trends in Student Housing for Student Business Housing’s 2011 Interface Student Housing Conference held in Austin, Texas. This national event is a conference and networking occasion that focuses on all facets of the student housing industry.

This distinguished panel was moderated by Loren King, COO and general counsel, of Trinitas, and featured: Les Juneau, President of Juneau Construction Co.; Brian Dinerstein, Principal of Dinerstein Cos.; Leah Fitzgerald, Business Development Manager for MW Builders; Susan Eastridge, CEO of Concord Eastridge; and Herbert Heiserman, Managing Principal of Street Sense.

According to the panel, during the past 30 years, more build-out activity has taken place on US college and university campuses than in the prior 100 years. Although the discussion focused on new product and development trends, it was made clear that the student housing market is still driven by fundamentals such as market demand. It was added that each student housing market differs in its entirety and requires extensive market research and planning to ensure the needs of all parties associated are met.

Panel members discussed the importance of incorporating student housing into a mixed-use product (more functionality than just student housing) with retail space. “By strategically planning the development project, all interested party needs including students, business, community and municipalities, can be addressed and met,” says King. “With strategic planning, functionality can meet innovation.”

Other discussion topics included the “musts” when developing student housing in a mixed-use project. “Students keep around-the-clock hours. This alone provides the need for 24/7 accessible services,” said King. The panel also highlighted the importance of providing students both wired and wireless internet and cable services.

Finally, the panel discussed that replacement housing is an up-and-coming trend for the future as schools have evaded this upgrade for years. Student housing developments built in the 1950s and 1960s that offered shared bedrooms and bathrooms are beginning to be refitted for today’s independent student.

Trinitas Recognized as a Top National Owner of Student Housing

West Lafayette, IN (March 1, 2011) – Trinitas Ventures LLC (Trinitas), a leading national developer, builder and manager of student housing, was named one of the top owners within the student housing industry for 2010. According to the November/December 2010 issue of Student Housing Business, the leading news and information portal for the industry, Trinitas was awarded this honor along with other major contributors including American Campus Communities, Education Realty Trust, and The Collier Companies.

“Our focus is on identifying high quality student housing development opportunities and providing top quality service to our investors, clients, and residents,” said Loren King, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of Trinitas. “We have never sought to acquire a large number of beds, so it was surprising to see that, even in spite of several dispositions, we own a large enough portfolio of student housing to warrant mention as one of the top student housing owners in the country.”

In late 2010, Trinitas and Chicago-based real estate private equity firm Harrison Street Real Estate Capital (HSRE) formed a $100 million joint venture partnership to develop and manage urban-infill student housing communities throughout the country. The magazine also honored HSRE as one of the top private equity investors in the student housing space.

“I am very optimistic about the current efforts of our development team to identify high-quality, high-return development opportunities in high-barrier-to-entry markets with a quantifiable undersupply of student housing. Regardless of where Trinitas may rank on a list in the years to come, I expect our portfolio’s size and quality to continue to grow in the future,” stated King.
