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 child.


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 convenience.


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.


All-Inclusive Living

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.


Residential Life

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.


Community Assistants

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 problem-solving.

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 hourly rate.


Pierce Education Properties

The Haven is owned by Pierce Education Properties, a San Diego-based owner, manager and developer of student housing and education-based real estate. Pierce owns and manages a national portfolio of approximately 12,500 beds of upscale, purpose-built, off-campus student apartment communities serving students and universities throughout the U.S.
