Types of Property
We only list furnished student-housing complexes. We focus on complexes because owners
usually put an emphasis on security, understanding who their cliental is. While nothing is
guaranteed, as a parent, you can feel as secure as possible knowing that a student-housing
complex generally offers more in the way of security, as opposed to an apartment building, or
single house. For example, most complexes offer Resident Assistants (R.A.’s), who monitor
multiple students as an additional layer of security
Resident Assistants are a feature only found in student housing complexes and are imperative in
helping students transition from leaving home to living on their own. Any issues, whether personal or secular, you'll feel a sense of calmness knowing that someone is there to answer
questions, even if it is a simple cooking question. You can see how many R.A’s there are per
student, allowing you can find a ratio that makes you most comfortable.
Another reason we only list student-housing complexes is that parents feel most comfortable
knowing that their child is living amongst others who are close in age, with similar anxieties,
such as upcoming midterms or difficult final exams. These types of issues seem surmountable
and secular goals achievable, knowing that others are having the same apprehensions.
Complexes also offer many services and amenities geared towards students, which help ease
their transition. As a parent, that gives you ease of mind. You will many listings with meal
plans, study rooms, theaters, and music rooms. These types of services make your child feel like
they have a home away from home. Use the advanced search options to find exactly which
services and amenities are most important to you and your child.
Student-housing complexes often offer social events to help your child meet other people and
refine their social skills. This feature helps develop your child’s confidence, while exposing
them to different cultures. Parents will afterwards see a noticeable change in maturity and well
roundedness that is often the result of these social programs.
