As off-campus apartments are becoming increasingly popular for college students, so is the concern that students living there are becoming isolated. However, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Research has shown that living off-campus actually has little to no negative impact on students’ academics, graduation, participation in clubs and sports or personal growth. Many are actually interacting more with their peers due to amenities provided by apartment complexes. Madison, Creekside & Brookside Court Apartments in Shippensburg, PA do just that.

Studies have found that apartment developers can combat student isolation by providing their residents with opportunities to get together outside of their apartment. Madison, Creekside & Brookside actively do this by providing spaces and activities for their residents to get together.

The complex has a large pavilion area and plenty of grass space where residents can get together. They also have many days where they get students into the office, such as recent “Cocoas and cookies in the office” and “Taco Tuesday.” They notify residents about these days through their mobile app, which is powered by Purple Deck. The residents will get a push notification sent directly to their phone, so they are reminded to stop in the office before or after their classes.
