Give your student the lifestyle they want – Give yourself peace of mind
For many young adults, a productive college career can be the foundation for lifelong success. There will be no greater contributor to your student’s academic success than the environment in which they live. At an American Campus community, we offer best-in-class accommodations in an environment conducive to academic achievement and well-being.
Bringing Student Housing to Life
Since 1993, American Campus has been the nation’s leading provider of academically oriented student housing communities. We have a unique understanding of, and an unrelenting commitment to students, parents and educational institutions. From our friendly, responsive staff to our educational recreational and social programs, our communities can serve as the foundation for your student’s academic success, personal growth and the establishment of lifelong friendships. It is these intangible aspects that make our properties an “American Campus Community”.
On-site Professional Management and Maintenance Staff
At American Campus, we're always on duty. Our communities are staffed 24/7 with an on-site professional staff. Each property’s staff is experienced and skilled in addressing all of your student’s needs. Our local general manager is supported by leasing, business, and maintenance personnel along with our student staff of community assistants. While many local properties have absentee landlords and substandard maintenance programs, at American Campus Communities our staff is proactive and responsive to any maintenance concerns your student may have. All work orders are processed within 24 hours while comfort and life safety work orders are given immediate attention.
Community/Resident Assistant Program
Your student is getting a good education, but do they have the skills that employers want?
According to a 2012 survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, hiring managers are seeking candidates with the following attributes and abilities: leadership, problem-solving, written and verbal communication, work ethic, and teamwork. We can help your student develop these critical skills as a Community Assistant (CA) or Resident Assistant (RA)!
Each CA and RA is as an integral member of the team and will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the operations of a student housing community that is managed by best-in-class publicly traded company. As a CA or RA, your student would have the opportunity to serve as a leader in one of our student housing communities as they help create an environment that is conducive to our residents’ academic success. We expect the CAs and RAs to get to know their residents and to plan programs that will help the residents learn and grow. Through the leasing process, CAs and RAs learn to communicate effectively with a wide variety of customers.
Is your student ready to start preparing for their future? Encourage them to apply for a CA or RA position at their property by submitting an application online at www.americancampus.com/careers.
Individual Lease Liability
By signing an individual lease for your student, you are only responsible for the rent of your student. You have no liability for the rent of the other apartment residents - one less thing for you to worry about. If a roommate transfers or graduates, you have nothing to worry about. You are not liable for the other roommates’ rent! This is a significant advantage over the joint and several leases used at rental houses and other apartment properties where each parent is liable for the rent of all residents in the unit. In those communities, when a roommate leaves school – you are liable for their rent. Not at an American Campus Community - just another way we give you peace of mind.
Educational, Recreational, and Social Programming
We provide a premier Residence Life program, which offers a variety of educational, recreational and social activities. By promoting students' scholastic achievement and social development, we facilitate personal growth and well being while reinforcing the mission of the university. Programs may include activities such as: Alcohol Awareness, Resume Building, Intramural Sports, community participation in campus wide competitions and many more.
Floor Plans, Amenities, and Affordability
We have a variety of spacious floor plans with private accommodations and all the luxuries and modern conveniences your student requires. In addition, our recreational and social amenities provide a productive outlet when your student needs a break from studying. Our communities are priced fairly offering you great value.
We offer roommate matching for those that would like to be placed with a roommate. Each student is asked to complete a personal profile card in order to better assist us in matching them with someone compatible with their interests, hobbies and academic studies.
No need for renting a U-Haul or borrowing a friend’s truck, nearly all of our communities provide stylish furniture INCLUDED in the rent, saving you additional money. All your student will need to bring are personal items (television, computer, stereo...) and decorations to create their own unique space.
Our communities are technology enabled, helping your student stay connected to their coursework, friends and you. We have the infrastructure to fit whatever technology tools are used by your student.
Live. Learn. Like. CONNECT!
As a Resident at one of our communities your student and their guarantor will have access to CONNECT-American Campus’ Resident Portal. It keeps your student connected to where they LIVE, where they LEARN, and to what they LIKE. You or your student can pay rent online via credit or debit card, set up monthly auto payments, update contact information, submit a maintenance request, and learn about upcoming events at the community. Plus, your student can create their own unique home page with the information, news feeds, and social media accounts that they want-all on one webpage!
Bottom Line – Peace of Mind for You!
