How does living in a student apartment complement the student experience?
Living in a student apartment prepares your student for the real world in so many
ways! Part of the college experience is developing critical life skills. Apartment
living promotes responsibility by presenting students with real world situations
in the context of an extremely pleasant and encouraging environment. Apartment residents
are in complete charge of the details of their lives, from scheduling, cooking,
cleaning, studying and paying bills. It is the right dose of reality for this
particular stage in your student’s progression toward total independence.
What is the advantage of an individual lease?
So many of us can recall a situation where our personal credit was spoiled because
a roommate was not motivated to pay his/her portion of the rent on time. With
individual leasing, we removed that threat and other unnecessary stress from the
rental equation. Your student is the only name on the lease and he/she is
responsible for payment of his or her bedroom only. “Paying rent”
is no longer a collective effort among all occupants of the apartment.
How does my student connect with roommates?
Everyone is looking for something different in a roommate situation. On one
hand, a group has decided to find an apartment where they can live together.
On the other, individuals are eager to make new friends from their new apartment
roommates. We can happily accommodate both scenarios. If your student
is looking for roommates, we offer a unique roommate matching service. We
aim to pair students with similar interests using our insightful roommate matching
questionnaire. The goal is always to blend similar lifestyles and create fulfilling
friendships among residents.
Is there a professional support staff on site?
Ambling Management Company has been in the business of property management for over
a decade. Our size and experience aptly equip us with the people, resources and
power to run our communities at the highest quality standard – day in and
day out. Within our on-site leasing office is a full-time staff whose job
is to facilitate the leasing process and also to manage resident relations.
Our maintenance personnel are a dependable and hands-on team dedicated to routine
property maintenance and emergency maintenance requests. Residents are encouraged
to issue any requests for maintenance assistance online, by phone, or in person
at the leasing office. We also employ students who live at each property and
serve as Community Assistants. Nicknamed “CAs”, they help with
leasing, resident events, and administrative tasks. They also serve as liaisons,
providing genuine, consistent and valuable feedback from the resident’s perspective.
Are there any additional features included in the rate?
Each of our unique student properties features its own set of amenities. Most
often, our apartments are available fully-furnished for your convenience.
Many communities are equipped with a swimming pool, fitness center, computer lab
and club house. Most of our students enjoy free parking and campus transit
while every resident of an Ambling-managed student community can expect a full calendar
of resident events including snack giveaways, social opportunities and academic
support initiatives. Each community has a website where students can monitor
events, pay rent or submit maintenance requests.
What should we expect for move-in day?
Move-in Day is always an exciting experience! Much of the hassle of college
moving has been eliminated over the years, especially for students who will be arriving
to fully-furnished apartments. Simply report to the leasing office during
your student’s allotted time period and receive a front door key and a bedroom
key. Unpacking is a cinch and there are minimal utilities to set in motion.
Your family will enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages in the leasing office.
Take a tour of the amenities and absolutely make yourself at home. We are
so glad to have you!
