What Is University Edge All About
We take pride in helping residents achieve greatness in all areas of life.
The Resident Edge
At University Edge, we strive to provide our residents with not just a great place to call home and top-of-the-line amenities, but an enriching experience. Our staff dedicates themselves to offer opportunities for our Akron off-campus housing residents to learn and grow while becoming members of a greater community. Through resident events and excellent customer service, we enhance the resident experience by supporting our residents personally, academically, and socially.
We know that you have a lot to balance and want to help you in the things you need most – whether it’s a BBQ in our courtyard on a beautiful summer day, or reviewing a resume for your job search when graduation is near – our staff is intentional about the experience we provide.

Our Green Initiative
You asked we listened! Many of our student residents at our Akron student housing mentioned in a recent survey about how they are concerned about the environment and want to see more eco-friendly features in our off-campus student housing. An overwhelming 80% said they wanted recycling available at their student housing and 72% said they would actively participate in recycling initiatives. You care about the environment, and so do we!
Recycling at our University of Akron Apartment
Because of this survey, we now offer three huge recycling bins available in our downstairs area for all our residents to use. Making recycling paper, plastic, and aluminum easier in our off-campus student apartments. We also offer recycling bins in communal areas of our off-campus student housing including the clubhouse and computer area.
Paperless Leasing at our University of Akron Apartment
Another part of our new green initiative includes going completely paperless with our leases. A clear majority of our incoming leases are now completed entirely online. This helps us save on the amount of paper our office uses and helps the environment.
