A Five-Star
Experience

Inspired by the elite hospitality experiences offered by top hotels, restaurants, and spas around the globe, Campus Life & Style has elevated expectations when it comes to serving our customers. Stemming from a one-of-a-kind partnership with the leading five-star hospitality and concierge service training company, CLS invested in developing a platform catering to students and parents. And as a result of that development, we spent three years training our teams under the Forbes Travel Guide before launching into our own in-house hospitality services.

Incredible expertise and deep-rooted knowledge of the highest level of service standards were applied to create a CLS hospitality training workshop for our communities, and an extensive monthly curriculum to keep these philosophies and expectations in the forefront of our teams’ minds.

Complementing our beautiful communities, this exceptional standard of service truly creates a student housing experience like none other.

The front office staff, especially Leeann, are so friendly and helpful! The Thompson hosts super fun events for their residents all throughout the year! The maintenance staff are also so so helpful and efficient. Truly wouldn’t recommend a better apartment complex!
