When you rent an apartment with University Edge, you will live in your own private quarters. As this may sound like a no brainer, there is more than meets the eye. Private living means you won’t have to share your amenities with the floor or any section of the building. Each apartment includes its own kitchen and bathroom; no shared appliances, no shared bathrooms. You won’t have to take your food to a common kitchen to do your cooking; you can enjoy the tranquility of creating your own culinary art in privacy.
Additionally, each unit includes its own 30 gallon hot water tank, so you won’t have to race against your neighbors in the morning to get a warm shower. Each unit has its own breaker box (located in the bedroom closet of all units), so you won’t have to make a special call if the power goes out during a storm. Simply flip your breakers back into the on position–don’t worry, if you are unsure how to access your breaker box, we will show you at the time of your move-in.
Private living is living best in our opinion. You will never be charged for someone else’s electricity use, and you have control over everything in your apartment!
Nevertheless, there maybe one thing nearly as enjoyable as private living: customization. You can customize many items in your apartment when you lease with University Edge. You will be able to choose your own room, rather than having your room assigned to you (like other firms). During tours, we show you model apartments–just to give you an idea of how you can arrange your furniture and show just how much you can fit in your unit. However, during tours, we can also show you the exact unit you would be leasing if you were to sign. This is always a good thing to ask on tours; if you would like to read more tips about touring apartments, check out my article called How to Become a Better Buyer. You will have the ability to choose what floor you’d like to live on as well as the unit’s location on the floor (as long as the apartment hasn’t already been leased).
You also have the opportunity to add brand new amenities to your apartment for a small monthly fee. As this mostly applies to our standard units, you are free to add something new to a renovated apartment as well–although our renovated apartments do include new appliances.
Our standard units have yet to renovated, and have older appliances included with the apartment. These older appliances are in working and proper condition, and if there were to be any complication, our maintenance team will replace any malfunctioning appliance as soon as possible. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a standard apartment, but you would like new appliance or amenities, you can add the following new items in your apartment:
- New Refrigerator, +$20/mo
- New Air Conditioner (studio apartments), +$15/mo
- New Air Conditioner (suites, 1bdrm, 2bdrm), +$25/mo
- New Oven & Range, +$20/mo
- New Mattress, +$10/mo
