Founded in 1995, Pierce Education Properties (PEP) took its platform national in 2006. 10 years later, we've grown into one of the nation's top 15 buyers and owners of student housing, and we've since acquired more than $800 million (more than 20,000 beds) of purpose-built student housing.
We target Core, Core-Plus, and Value-Add Student Apartment properties in joint venture with our capital partners. With more than $350 million in capital commitments over the next several years, we're one of the fastest growing student housing companies in the nation.
With decades of experience in university real estate, PEP also develops and provides advisory services for student housing, Greek housing, and university real estate projects. For over 10 years, PEP served as Master Developer of the College Community Redevelopment Project together with the San Diego State University Foundation. PEP’s leadership fostered the acquisition, entitlement, planning, development, and construction of several billion dollars of planned and completed student housing and university-supporting real estate projects.
PEP has been awarded multiple Pacific Coast Builder’s Conference Gold Nugget Awards for our work, as well as the Association of University Real Estate Officials’ national “Project of the Year” award. CEO Frederick W. Pierce was recognized in 2013 as one of 24 “Student Housing Pioneers” by Real Estate Forum Magazine, and in 2016 The Daily Transcript named him one of "100 Influential Leaders in San Diego." In 2015, PEP was named by Student Housing Business Magazine one of the Top 25 Owners and Managers of Student Housing in the U.S.
