A differentiated approach to Social Infrastructure

Better outcomes for students, patients and communities

Since its inception, the Harrison Street team has spent significant time developing and nurturing relationships with top universities and health systems across the US. We understand the challenges facing these institutions and the critical need for well-run campus facilities. Our conversations have expanded from real estate to incorporate broader infrastructure needs as these institutions look for knowledgeable, long-term capital partners.

Launched in 2018, Harrison Street’s Social Infrastructure Fund was developed to pursue a unique strategy to service universities, health systems and government users. Deferred maintenance, decarbonization and resiliency trends have led to an increased need for capital solutions in the space. The fund focuses on highly structured assets within these segments, supported by long-term contractual arrangements which produce consistent financial performance across economic cycles.

Our Social Infrastructure strategy is actively seeking opportunities to enhance long-term stakeholder value while contributing to improving the environment.  Investments provide critical service providers, such as healthcare and education institutions, with clean energy and sustainable buildings.

More than ever, it is imperative for global businesses to embrace clean energy and sustainable construction initiatives. Harrison Street is committed to delivering mission critical infrastructure assets and renewable energy options that contribute to the sustainability and resiliency goals of the businesses, partners, and communities in which we invest. We are proud to be a partner of choice and bring our infrastructure investing expertise to some of the nation’s leading universities, colleges, health systems and government users.
