Peak Performance

As a nationally recognized leader in student housing, we’ve made quite the name for ourselves in the past decade—and we’re just getting warmed up.

Peak Campus sets the standard for the development and management of coveted lifestyle communities.

 
 
 

Peak Mindsets

Five key mindsets create a compass for how we do business every day. They guide our company culture, growth, and quality of work.

 
 

People Matter Most

We are passionate about making people our top priority in everything we do. We treat our teams, residents, partners, and communities with the respect that they deserve and we value our relationships.

 
 
 
 

Create Moments

We take everyday experiences and make them exceptional. We empower our teams to create memorable moments with a personal touch.

 
 
 
 

Do the Right Thing

We will never compromise when it comes to our integrity. We do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.

 
 
 
 

Own It

We seize opportunities to do what needs to be done. We finish what we start and follow through on our promises, choosing more responsibility over less.

 
 
 
 

Evolve

We are in a passionate pursuit to be the best version of ourselves; as individuals and as an organization. We must learn and adapt to continue to succeed.

 
 

Made for people.

Our commitment to people is obvious when you look at the care and attention we pour into our communities and employees.

Peak Cares

At Peak, we always try to Do the Right Thing. One way we do that is by giving back through our philanthropic arm, Peak Cares.

The home office and our communities participate year-round in a variety of charitable efforts, including our national partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities where we cook meals for families and help support their holiday toy drive. We also support the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer awareness, Toys for Tots, and Clean Out for a Cause in addition to supporting local schools through reading programs and school supply drives. Our communities participate in local community support programs that put them in the running for our annual Spirit of Service award. 

Ultimately, we’d like to leave this world a little better than we found it.

Live Well

At Peak, we’re super proud to have won a Healthiest Company in America Award several years in a row! We consider it proof that our Live Well program, which helps employees achieve their healthy living goals, is indeed a success.

Our annual Biggest Loser and Move It to Win It programs bring our community teams and corporate support teams together for healthy competitions that promote healthy lifestyle habits while also fostering teamwork across the country.

On-site gym access and yoga classes for employees at our Atlanta headquarters, discounts at numerous gyms and specialty studios nationwide, as well as virtual workout options, are just a few of the resources the program provides.

People Development

Your onboarding experience begins before your first day and we strive to make a good impression on you from day one. We know the opportunity for development not only enhances a person’s confidence in their role but also their sense of worth within an organization. That’s why Peak offers numerous learning and development programs to our employees at every level of the business—from interns to executives. 

Interviewing with us? Be sure to ask about our Executive Coaching, LeaderSkills, FastTrack, Senior Recognition, and New Leader Development programs.

A company is only as good as its leaders. Fortunately, amazing leaders aren’t in short supply at Peak.
