Higher Education Finance is one of our core specialty advisory practices. First Tryon serves a diverse group of over 30 public and private higher education clients and we are proud to be the financial advisor to the University of North Carolina System and 14 of its constituent institutions. The projects we have helped to finance range from academic and research buildings to student and athletic facilities to technology and infrastructure improvements.

Our core capabilities include traditional university housing and general revenue bonds, certificates of participation, and project-based housing financing. Additionally, we continue to see increased support and momentum for P3 approaches. First Tryon has provided advice and analysis on several completed P3 projects for a number of different higher education clients. We have also been engaged to review disposition of college and university enterprises to the private sector.
