School has officially begun, and you are just starting to get into the swing of things. But then you realize that on top of all the other activities you have going on, you have to add house hunting to your to-do list.
Some students say that midterms and finals are the most stressful part of the year, but others will claim that finding an apartment ranks abfove all else on the stress-o-meter. Keep your stress levels low, and read our list of the top 10 landlords for Slippery Rock off-campus housing.
Coming in hot at the top of our list is The Heights at Slippery Rock—we’re sure this doesn’t come as a surprise to most people based on the extensive list of amenities and friendly staff. Who has time to go to class, walk to the gym, go to the tanning salon, and then go home and do their homework? Not many people. Lucky for you, The Heights is not only close to campus, but it also has a fitness center and unlimited tanning located on the property!
There are always those days when you just don’t feel like walking to class. Well, you don’t have to if you live here; there’s a shuttle right to campus for those of us that can’t seem to get that pep in our step. With 24-hour emergency maintenance, there’s no need to worry about having to deal with an overflowing toilet all night. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what one resident had to say:
“The Heights is an amazing place to live and visit at all times of the year. There are constant events going on to suit every resident’s desires that are managed by a hard working staff. From personal experience, a staff member named Nicole went above and beyond in order to make sure my time at the heights was well spent. Great price, great community, and great service!”
While having tons of amenities is a great thing, nothing beats having an incredible staff that takes care of their residents, and that’s what makes the Ivy so great. On top of having a great staff, the apartments here are spacious and allow residents to relax and stretch out after sitting in confining desks all day.
Having personal space is something everyone is looking for after being stuck in a tiny dorm with another person for the better part of a year. If you’re looking for a friendly face and some room to stretch your legs, the Ivy Apartments might be the place for you.
There’s nothing better when you’re a college student than having both classes and errands within walking distance of where you live. Pennsylvania winters can be brutal, so the fact that you don’t have to leave your apartment complex to go to the gym or go tanning makes winter a little more bearable. And having your apartment building within a short walk from campus keeps the risk of getting to class looking the abominable snowman a little lower. An amazing staff tops the list of things that make the Campus Side Apartments so great. One student said:
“Living at Campus Side has been a great experience. The office staff and maintenance go above and beyond the call of duty. The prices are reasonable, and it’s close to campus and all the major apartment complexes’. I would recommend it to any college student!”
While it may be a cliche to say that all college students are broke, unfortunately, it’s almost always true. But a lack of funds for a fancy apartment near campus doesn’t mean you have to lower your standards. That’s what is so great about the Slippery Rock Apartments; they are affordable for students, but they are still a quality place to live.
Parents always worry about the type of place their children are going to live in, especially if it’s on the affordable side. But if you live in the Slippery Rock Apartments, your parents will have nothing to worry about; the building is safe and secure. To top it off, the staff is friendly and willing to help you every step of the way. According to one resident, “they really care about their tenants.”
The apartment complexes from Paradigm Property Group are not only within walking distance from the Slippery Rock campus, but they also have several other amenities that make them popular among the students and young professionals alike. Whether you want something more upscale, like the Stonecrest Apartments, or something more cozy with all new furnishings, like the South Rock Apartments, Paradigm Properties has what you are looking for!
If you want it all when it comes to amenities, University Village is the place for you. The resort-style pool, 24-hour fitness center, and coffee bar are just some of the great amenities that come with living here. It’s a great fit for students because the units come furnished, so you don’t have to worry about how you and your roommates are going to decide who brings what furniture. Roommates are great and all, but a pet is even better, and University village lets you bring your pet with you!
One student said, “It has been a great experience living here so far! The people in the office are very helpful when I have any questions, and they are very nice and friendly. I am also very glad I can have my dog here, that is probably the best part!”
If you are an older student, or just someone who wants a quiet and peaceful place to live, Stoneworth Apartments is the place for you. They pride themselves on being the quietest and most trouble-free apartment complex in all of Slippery Rock. Each unit can either come furnished for added convenience or unfurnished for those who want to add their own style to their apartment. Free internet, cable, and parking round out the list of what makes this apartment one of the best in the Slippery Rock area.
If lots of amenities are something that draws you into an apartment complex, then The Grove is where you want to be. With everything from a pool and tanning bed to a coffee bar and game room, there are endless things to do here. Each person will have their own bedroom, walk-in closet, and private bathroom, which is perfect for times when you just can’t handle your roommates anymore and need some privacy. The controlled access gate allows residents to always feel safe inside their apartments.
Laundry has got to be one of the worst chores, especially when you have to leave your apartment to do it. Well, not at the Grove. Each unit has their own washer and dryer, so you can do your laundry and never have to put your shoes on. One student exclaimed, “The Grove is an awesome experience for college students looking for a safe, fun and overall great place to live. There is so much to do in the clubhouse, pool, basketball courts and even fire pits! Thanks so much Grove for the amazing experience!”
What makes the South Rock Apartments so great is that they have two locations for their residents, depending on the environment you want to live in. If you want to be close to campus, they have a location right on Keister across from the University. If you want something a little more rural and quiet, there is another location over on South Rock Drive.
The South Rock Apartments feature an expansive clubhouse, complete with a game room, fitness center, tanning booths, a big screen TV and much more. The two and four bedroom unit layouts allow you to have multiple roommates, or just one, depending on what you feel will work best for you. All in all, the South Rock apartments have everything a college student would ever need or want and more!
Spagnolo Properties is the company to go to if you’re not sure if you want to live in an apartment or a house because they have plenty of both. Many of their properties are within walking distance or just a short drive from Slippery Rock University, which is perfect for college students who need something close to class. They offer everything from one to five bedroom houses, so you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to the number of roommates you want to have. A house close to campus with your best buds; does it get better than that? We don’t think so!
