CHF-Col. Hous. Isl. Camp., L.L.C. - Texas A&M U. Corp Christi Isl. Camp. Proj. -- Moody's downgrades CHF-Coll Hsg Isl Campus TX A&M Corpus Christi Stu Hsg Rev Ser 2017 A & B to Ba1; outlook revised to negative

Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the New Hope Cultural Education Facilities Finance Corporation's (TX) Student Housing Revenue Bonds (CHF-Collegiate Housing Island Campus, L.L.C. - Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Island Campus Project) Series 2017A and Taxable Series 2017B to Ba1 from Baa3. The rating reflects the expectation of pressured financial performance for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019 and we believe that at current occupancy and advertised rent levels coverage could get close to 1.0x debt service coverage. The rating also considers the project's strong affiliation with the Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi, a member institution of Texas A&M University System (Aaa stable) and strong management by American Campus Communities.
