Founded in 2010, Domus has created unique luxury student housing projects in secondary and tertiary markets across the United States totaling $180M+ with over 4,000 beds. At Domus Student Living, we continually strive higher from development, to property management, to community stewardship. Our Property Management and Development Divisions work together seamlessly with a focus on select secondary and tertiary student housing markets where we deliver high-end contemporary, amenity-rich student housing communities that enhance the university experience.

We create custom developments that suit students, parents, universities and the communities at large. Each Domus Student Living community has a unique personality and story that brings out school spirit and highlights the larger community.

Legends Nacogdoches

Legends Nacogdoches in Nacogdoches Texas. The 100 year old house that started it all for Domus.


A random trip to a genealogy library led to the discovery of a charming empty house with a story that was dying to told. Thus, a company named Domus Development was born. The 100 year old house, once owned by a local timber baron, was carefully restored to historical designation standards and the new luxury student housing community was developed around it.

At Mustang Ranch Apartments, in the Cowboy Capital of the World, we honored history and tradition with a contemporary West Texas ranch house theme.

We have many more stories to share.

Community means everything to us. We care about community on both micro and macro levels. We don’t simply build the same project over and over. Rather, we add value to each individual community and the community at large in each market that we choose to invest. We work closely with universities and city planning to carefully blend in while standing out and raising expectations for everyone as we all strive higher as a community.

We do not build and leave. Instead, we invest our time, our expertise, and our concern in each market that we enter. We provide the best amenities in a fresh, contemporary, fun atmosphere that supports higher learning and the development of our next generation of leaders. We look for opportunities to build “community” not just build buildings.

We create experiences and memories that are cherished for lifetimes. We are often invited back to a community to consider additional developments. We consider this a high compliment as well as an honor.

We focus on communities that are growing and build the best product within that community. A growing market leaves room for existing student housing to compete and raises the bar, a win for all.

We love creating beautifully designed, beautifully managed student living communities.  We love what we do and students love to live in what we do.
