Moving off-campus is a rite of passage for most students–
another step on their road to independence. At The Haven, our goal
is to make that transition as easy as possible for you and your
Professional Management and Maintenance
The Haven offers professional on-site management and 24-hour
emergency maintenance. Our staff lives and works on site and
annually participates in extensive customer service training to
make your student’s living experience a memorable one. Our local
executive director is supported by skilled and experienced teams
focused on resident services, maintenance, and residential life.
Residents who need assistance can meet with team members in the
office or fill out work request forms online for added
Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility
At The Haven, we offer individual leases by the bedroom (not the
unit). This is different from a joint and several lease, and has a
major benefit: You and your child are only responsible for your
rent. You are never responsible for paying a roommate’s rent, even
if they graduate or transfer.
As part of the lease agreement, The Haven requires each student
to have a “Guarantor,” (a person 25 or older who is a resident of
the U.S. that will vouch for the financial responsibility of the
lease). If a Guarantor is not available, a “Prepaid Approval” is an
alternative and requires 2 installments of prepaid rent used for
the final 2 lease installments.
Moving your child out on their own can be expensive. At The
Haven, we support families with many student-friendly amenities
that are free and included in the overall rent to help ease the
financial burden. There is no additional charge for Internet,
water, cable TV, furniture, full-size washer/dryer, fitness center,
computer lab, study rooms, printing, tanning, shuttle to campus,
and monthly social events.
Safety & Security
The safety and security of residents is our number one priority
at The Haven. That’s why we offer secured windows, keyed apartment
doors, bedroom doors, after-hour security patrol and community
assistants who are on call and live on site.
The Haven is a social community with a vibrant residential life
program focused on social, physical, charitable and educational
activities– and many free food events, too! Residents are active
participants in a variety of monthly events hosted by our team of
dedicated community assistants and managers.
Charitable activities have included toy and food drives.
Educational activities could include everything from skin cancer
awareness to tutoring support. And The Haven regularly offers
popular social events such as Pinterest parties, watch parties,
breakfast-on-the-go, and other fun ways to meet new friends and
create lasting college memories.
Every year, many students vie for the opportunity to become a
Haven Community Assistant (CA). CAs are assigned to groups of
residents and offer peer guidance and support during a student’s
transition to off-campus housing. CAs contact residents weekly, and
assist them with everything from how to use appliances to roommate
The CA position provides students with valuable resume-building
experience through their work as a community leader, problem
solver, event planner, sales associate and friend.
The Haven hires approximately 10 CAs a year, who are paid at an
