Maintenance Tips

Locked out after hours or have a maintenance emergency? Please call the office at 407-366-7474. You’ll be connected to our live answering service that will connect you to the Community Assistant or Maintenance staff member on call who will help you out. *All after-hour lockouts are $25.*

Reminders & Updates

We’d like to thank all our residents who renewed and came out to our renewal deadline party! If you didn’t renew by the deadline, there’s still time. Call or stop by the office to find out if your bed space is still available and for more information on renewal rates! You can also renew from home via your resident portal account.

Just a friendly reminder that your rent is due on the first of every month, and late fees begin on the fifth. On the fifth, the late fee is $35 and goes up by $5 every day after that. If you have any questions regarding your rent or your account, please contact the office, and we’ll be happy to help you out!

Join Us: Give Hope and Fight Cancer!

Stay up all night. Hang out with your friends. Raise money. Make a difference. Laugh. Cry. Dance. Walk. Meet new friends. Give hope. Fight cancer. Join Relay For Life!

In 2015, there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 cancer deaths in the U.S. As a resident at a Campus Advantage community, you have an opportunity to make an impact by being involved in Relay For Life, a life-changing experience dedicated to supporting education, prevention, and support for those affected by cancer. More than 60% of Campus Advantage residents indicated they were interested in being involved with Relay For Life in 2015, and as a national corporate partner with the American Cancer Society, we are excited to give you this opportunity to become a part of this movement!

To date, Campus Advantage communities have raised more than $100,000 for Relay For Life. Please support this great cause by joining your property team and participating in fundraising events you’ll see over the coming weeks and months. To make it even more fun, Campus Advantage is hosting a friendly competition between our communities around the country to see who can raise the most for Relay For Life by the end of August — the top property team will receive a reward!

If you have questions about how to join your property team or to help plan fundraising events, please contact the management team today. Help us give hope by being involved in Relay For Life this year!
