Student Housing Communities

The first five options in our list of housing referrals are Student Housing Communities. These are very different than the common apartment, and can be a great transition for students who don’t have much experience out on their own. Whether you choose Stadium View, University Village, University Commons, GrandMarc, or Pavilion on Berry, you will find that Student Housing offers several things that a typical apartment doesn’t.

Student Housing Communities feature:

  • Roommate matching. If you want to have a roommate, living at a student housing community is the best way to get matched with roommates. You can have one, two, or three roommates, depending on the number of bedrooms in the apartment.
  • Individual leases. While giving you the option of living with other students, you are still able to sign a lease that is solely between you and the management company. This means that you pay a consistent amount per month for your room in the apartment, and you are not affected if a roommate fails to pay rent.
  • Furnished apartments. First time moving away from home? No furniture? No worries! Most student housing communities are fully furnished, so you only have to worry about moving personal items such as electronics, linens and decorative items.
  • All-inclusive rent. For the most part, your monthly rent pays for everything with the exception of parking. No need to worry about extra costs for heat, electricity, high-speed internet or cable TV!
  • Amenities. Student housing offers several great amenities such as fitness centers, computer labs, community rooms, washer and dryer in your apartment unit and air conditioning, as well as many others. Check out the lists of specific amenities for each community on its referral page.

Note for International Students: Student housing communities may require additional information and/or initial payments in order for you to secure a lease. Contact individual leasing offices for their specific requirements.

What is the cost compared to living in a dorm?

Student housing is competitive and often times more affordable than living in a residence hall at a major college or university. Check out how our referrals compare to these examples!

Stadium View

Stadium View is the largest student housing community in the area, and can accommodate the non-traditional start dates of IPR students. While most student housing communities have a move in
date in late August prior to the traditional fall college semester, Stadium View offers students individual move-in dates prior to all IPR start dates. This avoids having to find a sublease and provides a flexible option for IPR students..

The community offers roommate matching on individual leases, which means while you share an apartment with other students, you are in no way held accountable for the rent payments of your roommates. If they fail to pay, your rate and lease terms do not change. Prices are listed for each individual lease.

Located in the Stadium Village area of the U of M campus, there are many amenities and points of interest close at hand.

Cosigner information for Stadium View:

Any non-international student under 18 years old needs a cosigner.International students are not required to have a cosigner but are required to pay a deposit equal to one month’s rent.

University Commons has 2 and 4 bedroom apartments, with both individual and shared bedroom options. You can check out their floor plans and specific pricing on their website.

Subleasing Information for University Commons:

This community offers individual leases, which means while you share an apartment with other students, you are in no way held accountable for the rent payments of your roommates. If they fail to pay, your rate and lease terms do not change.

The University Commons is structured to a traditional University schedule, with 12 month leases that begin in August. Since IPR has start dates 4 times per year it is unlikely that signing a 12 month lease in August will work out. However, subleasing is a viable option. Students who have signed leases sometimes find that they want to study abroad, move in with friends, or do any number of things that would require them to get out of their lease. That’s where you come in! You can take over whatever time is left on their lease, then have the option of signing on for another year or moving out when the term ends. Subleases can (and do) come up any time of the year, which can allow you to move in close to your start date.

University Commons is very involved with its subleasing options. Check out the website or contact the rental office for up-to-date sub-lease availabilities!
