Corvias is a privately held company based in East Greenwich, R.I., which contracts with universities and the U.S. Army as a housing developer and owner. The company`s founder and CEO, John G. Picerne, was one of the representatives of housing companies who appeared on the issue at a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee hearing in December. « The Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) has not received any request or pressure from Corvias to reopen student housing, » she wrote in an email. « Unlike traditional campus residences, the student residence, next to ACOM, is a residential-style apartment, independent of the university and open year-round during campus closure. » « Given the focus in your letter on the security of credits and payments received by the partnership, WSU staff remain available to contact you with CCL-WSU, LLC lenders, » wrote Chief Housing Officer Michael. « We are confident that our lending community will accept that the in-depth, science-based mitigation strategies we use at WSU and in campus housing are in the best interest of its investments and are the best way to secure the current and future interests of the WSU Campus community alive on campus. » « While EGSC is part of a P3, it did not influence our decision in terms of capacity and operating restrictions, » she said in an email. « We choose to open at full capacity rather than limit capacity, because all of our housing units are private room units. The bathrooms are shared by only 2 students.
An additional social gradation from the state of capacity was deemed unnecessary. Five Corvias employees were listed in a 25-member subcommittee for the Wayne State Residential, Gastronomic and Campus Retail, which participated in the fall reopening projects. « At no time has Georgia State University been put under pressure to have its residences at full capacity this fall, » he said. « In the interest of health and safety, early this summer, the Georgian state developed a plan to reduce the number of housing dwellers, but the number of students opting for campus apartments made it unnecessary for us to implement our plan. Over the past two months, many students have terminated housing contracts. We continue to remove students from our waiting list, yet we are sure that because of wear and tear, we will open with much less density. « And while the dealer and lender accepted the risk of fluctuating demand for student housing, they did not accept the risk of unilateral action » by institutions that « would have a negative impact » on student housing benefit revenues, he added.
