Item 8.01.    Other Events.

The paragraph entitled "Recent Legislation Modifying Several of the Rules Applicable to REITs-Reduction in Built-in Gains Period" of Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K of American Campus Communities, Inc. and American Campus Communities Operating Partnership LP filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 10, 2016, as amended by that certain Current Report on Form 8-K of American Campus Communities, Inc. and American Campus Communities Operating Partnership LP filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 5, 2016, is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

"Reduction in Built-in Gains Period. The PATH Act reduced, for taxable years beginning in 2015 and later, the recognition period or “built-in gains” period (i.e., the period during which gains from the sale or disposition of property acquired by a REIT from a C corporation in a tax-free merger or other carryover basis transaction is subject to C corporation tax) from 10 years to 5 years.

On June 7, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department issued temporary regulations that extended the recognition period or “built-in gains” period described in the discussion above from 5 years to 10 years for any property with built-in gain that was acquired on or after August 8, 2016.

On January 18, 2017, the Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department issued final regulations that reduced the recognition period or “built-in gains” period described in the discussion above from 10 years back to 5 years for any property with built-in gain that is acquired by us on or after February 17, 2017. The final regulations also allow us to apply the five-year recognition period or “built-in gain” period for any property with built-in gain that was acquired by us on or after August 8, 2016, and on or before February 17, 2017."
