Company Updates

  • At Peak Campus, our primary core value, People Matter Most, is the drive behind our motivation to give back and make a difference in our communities.

    Peak Cares, our philanthropy program, was born out of our passion and drive to make a change nationwide. Our annual "Days of Service" will take place the week of May 20th in the communities we serve. Our teams will be volunteering with local organizations, and one property will be selected for our "Spirit of Service" award. The winning property will receive $5,000 to donate to their charity of choice.

    During the month of May, we will also hold our annual campaign for The Ronald McDonald House Charities. Our national partnership with RMHC has led to countless breakfasts and dinners served, year-round donations, and a sponsored room that covers all utilities, linens, cleaning and annual repairs from paint to carpet tiles.

    Days of Service 2019

  • Last Monday members of the Peak team had the opportunity to meet with Horst Schulze, former President and COO of the Ritz Carlton hotel group.

    At @PeakCampus one of our mindsets is "Be the Best" and that applies at every level in our organization. It's incredible to work for a company that strives to "Be the Best" but is also ambitious yet humble in its quest to "Learn from the best".

    Horst's best business advice ever received: All you have to do at work is be a little better than everyone else. Be a little friendlier to your boss. Be five minutes early, stay five minutes late.

Thank you, each of you, for your candid reviews of Peak Campus on  I am grateful to those of you with positive things to say.  I strive daily to make Peak an employer of choice and foster a culture where people matter most.  As I have said time and time again, we wouldn’t be where we are today without each associate around the country owning it, being the best, doing the right thing and providing industry leading customer service.  I am honored to work alongside each of you every day. 

I also value the feedback from those of you who came to this site to get an unpleasant experience off of your chest and those of you who provided constructive feedback for our Company.  As I truly believe we are a “people business” and as humbling as it is to see negative feedback, we want you to know we heard you and we will continue to be an organization where “good just isn’t Peak enough”.  We will continue to be an organization that invests in its people, provides world class training, and strives to make every associate’s experience at Peak world class.

If you are here and desire a career path in student housing then I encourage you to strongly consider an opportunity at Peak.  As a national Company with an industry leading reputation, we look forward to the Company’s continued success.  Should you join our Company, I am confident that where you are in your career today will only be the start of greater things to come. 

Thanks for reading. 

All the best,

Bob Clark, CEO

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Peak Campus (Columbia, SC) in September 2017.


    The interview process was awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with all of the different people throughout it. I absolutely loved finding out about the company's culture and how much it related to the person I am in general.
