Virtual Tours

Virtual tours are intended to give you an approximate view of our property, not exact details of a specific unit. Your own unit may vary in flooring type, kitchen and bathroom materials (counters, cabinets, appliance/fixture types), and the layout may be flipped or slightly varied depending on the location within the building and the building style. Each University Apartments unit has its own unique character and it is not possible for us to provide more specific details about individual units, but hopefully these virtual tours help give you a better perspective about what you might expect upon arrival. While your individual unit may be slightly different and the view from your windows will be unique, we can guarantee your apartment will be clean and ready for your arrival home at move-in.
