What College Students Look For In Student Housing While Attending GVSU

Whether you’re a first- or fourth-year college student, what’s important to you when it comes to student housing? One thing students put high on their list of priorities is safety. This seems to be something that students are concerned about and want details about.

 Privacy can also be a big issue for students who take their grades and study time seriously. If your roommates are more concerned with the nightlife and having friends over, and you’re serious about your studies, then your grades may start to drop due to the lack of a quiet study area, especially if you have to share a room. Poorly constructed housing can also contribute to difficulty concentrating if sound easily transfers through walls.

Also on the list of priorities is adequate storage space and room to move around in. Shelving, closet space, drawers, and a desk come high on the list as well, and almost no student complains about having a window to allow sunlight to brighten up their room! Meadows Crossing has all of those components in every room.

Of course, cost of education is high on the list, especially since a college degree is a costly investment in and of itself. Since GVSU offers 200+ areas of study and is still a reasonably priced college, it attracts the interest of prospective college students not only from Michigan, but from across the U.S. as well.

Any students planning to attend GVSU and seeking off-campus housing owe it to themselves to take a look at Meadows Crossing Townhomes. Not only are our townhomes very reasonably priced, but they are conveniently located at the entrance to GVSU’s Allendale Campus and offer many extras in the ways of convenience and comfort. The units are very modern and fully furnished, too! 

Every bedroom is designed for one person, has its own private bath, and is keyed individually for privacy. You will find a generous closet area in each bedroom, a double-bed, night stand, chest, and desk. The beds are slightly raised in order to provide additional storage space. On the main floor, the kitchen area has a snack bar and is open to the spacious living room. You’ll also find a half bath on the main floor of almost every unit. With eight floor plans and two-and four-bedroom units to choose from, the options appeal to everyone. 

A few of the amenities of the complex include a tanning room, pool, spa, fitness center, and clubhouse where you can watch one of the flat-screen TVs or play a variety of games. 

Between GVSU and Meadows Crossing, you’ve got the best of two worlds–a great education and a great place to live!
