FOR THE PARENTS

Living Off-Campus In Buffalo

 

There are a number of colleges and universities throughout the Buffalo area for students to choose from. Because of Collegiate Village's central location and shuttle system, CV is ideal for getting to and from campus efficiently. Our residents include students from the University of Buffalo (North and South Campus), Buffalo State, Medaille, Daemen, Villa Maria, D'Youville, Canisius , ECC & more. We pride ourselves on providing the best student housing experience in Buffalo.

 

Your Home Away From Home

 

Step into to a community that supports you in many of your living experiences. We have the facilities to keep you connected with your studies, your friends and your family. We offer you ways to relax and relieve stress. Did we mention our exclusive café restaurant on site with convenience store and additional quiet, study lofts?

 

Parents don’t forget to ask about our loadable Solar Café cards.  If you want to make sure your child has enough to eat, you can load their own card up with money and earn points towards FREE food.

 

Offering You Top Notch Facilities At CV

 

On-site 24 Hour Staff

 

Though our office hours end at 6:00pm, we are here 24/7 to help your student with anything they need. We have a Residence Life Community Assistant, Security and Maintenance on call anytime of the day. You can rest assured we’ll be here to address maintenance requests as soon as possible. A comfortable, safe living environment for our residents is our top priority.

 

Individual Leases

 

Here at Collegiate Village, you and your student are only responsible for your own account here. Assuming the rental responsibilities of roommates or other residents are not part of your liability, which is a huge advantage over most apartments and rental properties. Student dynamics can change at any time, we ensure that individual leases allows residents control over their own accounts and no one else’s.

 

Roommate Matching

 

We do offer roommate matching. If your son or daughter would like to live in an apartment with multiple rooms and does not have a roommate in mind, we can do the work for them!  We match residents with roommates based on social and study habits expressed on the roommate questionnaire form that every applicant is required to complete. If your student has a roommate in mind, we offer an additional incentive in the form of a rent credit as a part of our “Find Your Own Roommate” program.  Their potential roommate must complete the same application process and sign an individual lease agreement.  Rental Rates are based per person, per room.

 

What To Bring When You Move In

 

Below you’ll find general ideas on some items you may want to bring with you:

 

Kitchen: Pots/Pans, dishes, cutlery, food/snacks, dishwashing detergent, oven mitts, dish rags/sponges, cleaning supplies

 

Common Area/Living Room: Area rug, decorative items*, throw blankets, pillows, a television (if desired)

*To avoid holes and damaging the walls, we suggest using Command hooks and strips by 3M.

 

Bedroom: Blankets, sheets, pillows, a television (if desired)

 

Bathroom*: Shower curtain and rings, shower liner, bath mat and accessories, towels, washcloths, toilet paper, cleaning supplies
