Real Estate Institute at Stony Brook University College of Business: Impact of Market Rate Apartments on School District Enrollment May 2019.

The Real Estate Institute at Stony Brook University’s College of Business conducted a study where they followed 14 multifamily developments in 10 different school districts across Nassau and Suffolk counties. 

The study found that, over the last decade, new developments:

  • Accounted for 3,928 units of housing. 
  • Produced only 313 new students (1 student per 10 housing units). 
  • Were tax-positive for their communities.
  • Brought in occupants that lead to new property and school taxes and took advantage of the school at a much lower rate than single-family occupants.
