"Great Location, with lots of great amenities!"

Off-campus Housing, Tailored to You

Whether you want the convenience of living minutes away from your classes or work, the privacy of close to campus apartments, or the amenities of an all-inclusive community, The Varsity is the right choice for you.

Resident Focused Environment

We operate with needs of college students and professionals in mind. That's why we offer individual leasing options, flexible lease terms, online rent payments, roommate matching and resident employment opportunities.

Individual Leasing Options

Between work, classes, and social activities, you've got a lot on your plate. But with our individual leases, you'll have one less thing to worry about. Individual leasing allows you and your roommates to pay rent separately, so you don't have to worry about roommates not paying their share.

Flexible Lease Terms

We offer individual 12-installment leases, beginning in August and ending in August. So whether you're a professional with job commitments, a freshman starting in the fall or a senior graduating in the spring, our lease terms will fit your needs.

Online Rent Payments

To make paying rent as convenient for you as possible, we support online payments. Residents may quickly and securely pay rent anywhere at anytime. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards as well as electronic checks.

Roommate Matching

If you don't have anyone to live with, our roommate matching service helps ensure you find the right roommates.
