Our Green Initiative

Students mentioned in a recent survey  that 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. You care about the environment, and so do we! We offer three huge mixed- use 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 in communal areas of our off-campus student housing including the clubhouse and computer lab.

Another part of our 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.

See our green initiative in action when you come to tour our University of Akron Apartments. Schedule a visit and see for yourself why the University of Akron students choose to call University Edge their home. Schedule a tour today!
