Loaded with amenities and state-of-the-art technology, University House Central Florida was designed with Millennials in mind.
The 416-unit, five-story student housing property sits on 9.9 acres less than a mile from the campus of Central Florida University, one of the largest and fastest-growing universities in the nation. The community features a mix of one- to four-bedroom units housing 995 students across nine floor plans ranging from 475 to 1,521 square feet. The fully furnished apartments sport a fresh, urban interior design.
Outside, students have access to four courtyards designed to encourage interaction. Other amenities include a zero-entry, resort-style pool detailed with intricate paver designs; a first-class fitness center; outdoor volleyball and basketball courts; and a putting green. The clubhouse features a multimedia lounge and clubroom trimmed with high-end finishes, offering a luxurious study and research environment, as well as areas to relax and socialize.
In keeping with its hip target audience, the project offers wireless Internet, as well as wireless surround sound and flat-screen TVs in common areas. Due to its innovative design and premium amenities, the property achieved the milestone of being 100 percent preleased in early summer 2012. A waiting list remains.
