Enjoy the Courtyard
The courtyard is a great place to catch some rays of sun or just relax. There are tables with umbrellas available for your enjoyment. Please remember to lower the umbrellas after use (especially on windy days). The bar-b-que is available for grilling but please keep the area clean and pick up after all courtyard meals.

No Beer Kegs
Beer kegs are strictly forbidden at the College Courtyard Apartments. Kegs are not allowed on the courtyard or in individual apartments.

Please be aware that if you bring a keg onto the property we will begin eviction proceedings immediately
Message from Phyllis
Please keep in mind that many of the residents of the College Courtyard Apartments are taking summer classes. These classes are very intense and the need for a quiet study environment is important. Please be considerate of your fellow residents who are “burning the midnight oil” and limit excess noise, loud music/TV and parties. I would also like to thank each of you for your cooperation and special effort in helping to keep the complex clean. We continually strive to keep the complex clean, quiet and safe for all of our residents. Have a great summer!!

increase the parking fees on campus. The University has parking fee increases
scheduled every year for the next five years. Fortunately, the residents of the
College Courtyard Apartments don’t have to worry about these increases. Our
residents enjoy free parking that is close to the campus. With our students,
instead of driving round and round looking for a parking space you can have
another 20 minutes of precious sleep. That’s a real bonus and another benefit
of living at the College Courtyard. University of

Need Storage For The Summer?

Garbage Tossing Is Not Sport

Watch the Gate
Please be very careful when driving through the garage gate. If the gate is going down, DO NOT try to slip under the gate. Once the gate begins to go down it will not stop if you press the button on the garage gate opener. It will only stop when it hits something and it could do considerable damage to both your car and the gate if this occurs. The gate is set to stay up an adequate amount of time for one car. You will be held responsible for any damage if the camera shows that you tried to slip through the gate inappropriately.
Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.
No Hover Boards
Until a safe hover board is manufactured, they are banned from the College Courtyard Apartments. These devices have proved to be dangerous——especially when being charged. Having a hover board in your apartment could lead to eviction.
Security is Important
Security at the College Courtyard Apartments is a priority. All of our entrances are under 24 hour video surveillance. Recently we installed additional gates and barriers to make the complex even more secure. At night the College Courtyard Apartments are very well lit and there are no dark corners. We encourage our residents to monitor carefully who is buzzed into the courtyard.
Please Don’t Drink and Drive
We want to remind all of our students not to drink and drive. Don’t ruin your life with a DUI or worse a fatal car accident by drinking and driving. Call a cab, get a designated driver who will not drink or walk home. The life you may be saving could be your own.
