In response to rising demand for accelerated internet connectivity, American Campus Communities (NYSE: ACC), which manages student housing communities, announced Friday that it will provide internet service of up to one Gigabit per resident at the new The Callaway House Austin, an off-campus community that will serve students attending The University of Texas at Austin.
The Callaway House is expected to set a new standard in student housing products and services featuring 661 beds in full-service residence hall accommodations and 92 beds in penthouse apartment accommodations.
The community is 100 percent leased for its August 2013 opening. American Campus chose Austin-based internet provider CampusConnect to deliver a number of services.
With the new internet services, The Callaway House residents will be able to connect their tablets, laptops, smart phones, televisions, and more.
“This technology infrastructure meets the evolving demand for fast internet service desired by our residents for coursework, social media, online content and other emerging internet services,” said Bill Bayless, American Campus CEO.
