If you are new to our Meadows Crossing housing community, welcome! We are glad to have you here. This is a great place to live, full of friendly GVSU students. For students who are new to living in off-campus housing, you may find a few challenges ahead. In this blog we will talk about what […]
Fire safety is something that everyone needs to become familiar with, especially people who live in apartments, dorms, and other multi-use buildings. The consequences of careless actions can affect many people. The purpose of this blog is to help our residents become more aware of fire hazards and simple fire safety precautions that can be […]
One of the advantages of living in off-campus housing at Meadows Crossing is that all of our residents have their own bedrooms and bathrooms. Our townhouses provide much more privacy, which helps improve roommate relations. Often our residents apply to live here already knowing the people they want to live with, but sometimes we have […]
Meadows Crossing is very proud of the outstanding facilities and amenities that we offer our residents, but we are also proud of the customer care that we give to them.
