A Social Community

For many students, making friends is a highlight of the college experience. In our community, you have ample opportunities to meet new people. Our townhomes are mini-communities in themselves, where residents can hang out and create memories in the living areas they share. We also offer roommate-matching services, which pair up students with similar interests. The amenities we offer also foster social interactions, while the fact that our residents are all members of the U Of I family means you always have something in common with your neighbors.

      The Benefits Of Modern Living

      Where you live during college can affect your life in several ways, including how you perform in the classroom. That's why the idea of modern living appeals to so many students. When you have a comfortable, furnished home to return to after the school day, you're able to relax and live a more complete and fulfilling lifestyle. And with access to community amenities, you always have a quiet place to study, a gym in which to work out, and a pool area to swim, grill, and play games with friends.
