Any student will be accommodated at College Station and The Nittany. If you already have other students that you know you would like to live with, you will be placed with them, within the same apartment. If you are looking by yourself, you will be put on our “Roommate Needed List” and matched with other single tenants of the same gender using our Roommate Matching System. The roommate matching questionnaire is part of your initial application that you fill out prior to signing a lease to live at College Station or The Nittany. We use your answers to this questionnaire and compare them with other residents’ answers and match everyone accordingly.

College Station: There is an onsite manager who resides on the property and is available for emergencies 24 hours a day. We offer 3rd Party After Hours Security/Concierge services 7 days a week. There are also over 80 video cameras located around the facility covering all entrances, outdoor and parking areas as well as all interior common areas. The footage of these cameras is monitored regularly. All exterior doors lock every time they close, so Non-Residents are unable to enter without the assistance of a College Station resident. If these doors are “propped open” or held open, an alarm will sound after 30 seconds alerting staff and residents that the door is not closed properly. Also, our “Key Fob” lock system allows us to track activity and potential misuse of any area by their individual coding. These keys are not reproducible by the resident and can be taken offline immediately in the event that a resident’s key is ever stolen or misplaced.

We do require every tenant to carry renters insurance. Tenants may procure their own renter’s insurance policy and show College Town Communities management proof of that insurance and list College Town Communities as “Additional Insured” on that policy or tenants can work along with management to secure their Renter’s Insurance at move in by going with a third party insurance company at that time. This is done in our Leasing Office and often represents the most inexpensive costs for the most comprehensive coverages.
