The Perks of Community-Oriented Apartments
The staff at Pomona West Apartments believes apartments serve a unique purpose of community living, a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of the many perks of dwelling in a somewhat shared space. However, many off-campus housing does not approach apartment living in the same way, rather, other apartment complexes are more concerned with leasing units primarily to get as much profit as possible, without extending compassion or assistance to a wide variety of tenants. That’s not how the off-housing community near Chico, CA works. They pride themselves on creating community-oriented homes for students at Chico State and Butte College, investing in them as residents rather than tenants.
The following are some of the reasons apartment living feels like community, and why students shouldn’t settle for isolated apartment complexes that don’t value positive interaction.
- Comfort is a must
The residents at the off-campus housing community are encouraged to make their units as comfortable as possible, promoting individuality and the freedom to decorate their space to reflect their personalities. The comfort of community begins in a resident’s own apartment home, allowing them to feel safe and surrounded by other friendly individuals. Many students convey that they often feel safer in a gated off-housing community than in a stand-alone home.
- Closer neighbors and closer bonds
The staff of the premier housing community strives to create positive interactions between residents, so they can relish in a community rich in friendship and friendliness. It’s crucial to the students at Pomona that they foster a culture of authenticity and diversity. Living in an apartment can bring you a closer bond with your neighbors than living in a separate home because you share certain designated spaces, like the dog park, pool or basketball course.
Convenient activities are available to you at all times, making it easier to invite a neighbor to play disc golf or bike downtown. When off-campus housing facilities make an effort to foster community, residents are more likely to demonstrate conscientious behavior. Students who take pride in their community will stop to say hello to their neighbors.
- Engaging events and activities
Many off-campus housing communities that draw students in are the ones that sponsor community activities and programs to bring people together. They often provide fun amenities, like an area to get to know your neighbor’s dog at the park or a place to have a BBQ. The level of energy and engagement is crucial in determining rich community.
