Cincinnati, OH – June 1, 2020 – With Xavier University announcing plans for students to return to campus in the fall, University Station stands ready to provide the area’s only housing option in which every bedroom has a private bathroom—even in three-, four- and five-bedroom layouts. The luxury apartment complex, located just steps from campus, quickly adapted to a new cleaning regimen in compliance with CDC guidelines while remaining open during the spring semester. Heightened standards will continue as the university reopens.
“Privacy is always an important factor for residents, but even more so now considering increased awareness of social distancing and hygiene best practices,” said Johnna Mullikin of Uptown Rental Properties, residential property manager of University Station. “It brings some peace of mind to know students will have their own secure bedroom and bathroom while remaining close to campus classes and activities.”
In terms of shared amenities—such as the pool, fitness center, movie theater and study rooms—the property manager, Uptown Rentals, has prioritized enhanced cleaning practices. “Use of the amenities is scheduled by appointment to respect occupancy and social distancing protocols, and to allow for thorough cleaning of all equipment and high contact surfaces, every two hours”, said Mullikin.
Personal virtual tours are available for those interested in renting for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, and leases are done per bedroom (so each person in the unit has a separate lease). Every fully furnished apartment includes free WiFi and a washer/dryer, and several units have balconies.
While the availability of one- and two-bedroom units is extremely tight, three- and four-bedroom units remain up for rent. If a lessee doesn’t have roommates lined up, University Station can pair students together for co-living.
“We understand the impact COVID-19 has had on the ability of students and their families to plan for the upcoming school year, and finding last-minute housing is one of those challenges,” Mullikin said. “We are here to provide Xavier students with a secure and clean residence.”
