All You Need to Know About

Individual Leasing - this means your student is only responsible for his or her portion of the rental amount unlike signing a conventional or joint and several leases.

Community/Resident Assistant Program - we offer events for students to mirror the on campus lifestyle but give the freedom of off campus living.

Roommate Matching - we match roommates up to students with similar needs and lifestyle. Each resident completes a roommate matching profile to determine the residents best suited to room together.

Fully Furnished - all of our apartments are fully furnished to make your transition to apartment living as seamless as possible. There is enough space in our apartments to add personal items to make it feel like home.

Security Services - dedicated onsite security provides courtesy services, noise complaints, and emergency response. Our building has controlled access entry and is equipped with a state of the art camera system.

Renter's Insurance - Renter's insurance provides coverage for your student’s personal belongings, whether they are at home, car or with your student while on vacation. In addition, renter's insurance provides liability coverage in case someone is injured in the apartment or if your student accidentally causes injury to someone. In an effort to ensure a safe living environment we require all residents to carry an active renter’s insurance policy. For convenience purposes you can enroll at www.residentinsure.com and take advantage of the group rate or feel free to bring in documentation of your own policy prior to move in.

Give Back

We May Be the Perfect Match!


Over the last 26 years, the foundation has awarded more than 5.2 million dollars in scholarships. The Michaels Organization awarded nine scholarships in 2016 to deserving recipients. “Giving back is embedded in our corporate culture, and there is no better way to give back than with the gift of education,” says John J. O’Donnell, President of The Michaels Organization. “We are pleased to now offer this opportunity to our newest students; those living in our state-of-the-art, purpose-built student housing communities.”

All residents enrolled in accredited colleges, universities or vocational training programs are eligible to apply. Students may reapply every year of their education.
