“One of our core values is to give back to our communities and now, more than ever, is the time to do that,” said Derrick Milam, COO of Vie Management.

Vie Management, a student housing real estate investment company that promotes healthy lifestyles and takes a hospitality approach to guest services, is giving back to the Tuscaloosa community by donating all application fees from its local community, Vie at University Downs, during May to local hospitals in support of fighting COVID-19. Vie Management has agreed to also match all application fees up to $1000 for the donation.

“One of our core values is to give back to our communities and now, more than ever, is the time to do that,” said Derrick Milam, COO of Vie Management. “Our first responders and medical professionals are leading the charge and we want to support them in their fight. We are all in this together and we’re grateful to be able to donate all application fees during the month of May to local hospitals.”

Located at 120 15th St. E., Vie at University Downs is a luxury student housing community located within walking distance of the University of Alabama. The community focuses on building an environment that fosters residents, also known as guests, to live their best lives, while offering them the experience of living in a resort-like environment.

The community recently completed a million dollar renovation including upgrading the 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center, deluxe yoga studio, two resort-style pools, two-story clubhouse, panoramic terrace, and co-working and creative lounge.

“With our latest changes to Vie at University Downs, we’re confident that our guests will be able to grow academically, professionally and personally,” added Milam.

The 430-bed community also recently renovated its spacious floor plans including one, two and three-bedroom options. The renovations included brand new matte steel appliances and faux hardwood floors. Residents have the option between fully furnished apartments with new modern furniture or an unfurnished space. Conveniently located, along with a University of Alabama Crimson Ride shuttle stop, Vie at University Downs is the perfect combination of live, work, play and study.
