Ambling University Development Group, LLC, (AUDG) specializes in customized on-campus student housing and auxiliary projects with experience that includes 59 campus projects and more than 34,000 student beds over the past decade. Additional experience includes more than 3,800 seats of campus dining, 4,400 structured parking spaces and 203,700 square feet of campus retail.

AUDG provides fully integrated financial, development, design and construction solutions. This process allows the company to transform the visions of higher education partners into reality through a fast-track, turn-key process that includes the assurance of a guaranteed budget and schedule while also allowing clients to minimize risk and maintain focus on running their institution. The company’s experience includes everything from highly programmed living-learning communities to campus dining, retail and structured parking facilities—all created to help retain current students and increase future enrollment while minimizing each project’s debt impact on the institutions’ balance sheet.

In addition to on-campus housing, AUDG provides off-campus solutions for students seeking independent, off-campus living. Projects currently under construction include sites in Atlanta, Bloomington, Ind,; and Charlottesville, Va.; with others in the pre-development stage. AUDG leads its clients through a collaborative process to ensure that the optimal balance between design and budget is achieved prior to the start of construction. With a focus on individual relationships, AUDG strives to build every project into a long-term partnership by exceeding expectations and offering comprehensive management from pre-development through construction and by providing ongoing support following project completion.
