Find great apartments near campus with Best for Parents
We’re excited to announce the launch of Best for Parents, a tool we’ve created to help you determine which student housing options meet the standards you — as a parent — are looking for.
While apartments marketing to college students often tout the features that students are seeking out (pool, hot tub, etc.), we know that parents have important and relevant questions that can go unanswered.
Best for Parents certification takes into account the aspects of housing that matter most to you, such as safety, convenience, student-friendly features, and professional, accessible management and maintenance.
We ask apartments 20 common parent questions, and rate them according to their answers. Housing that earns the Best for Parents label will have a Best for Parents logo on their UniversityParent listing, a plaque and/or window decal at their place of business, and, most importantly, their answers to the parent questions are available on our site for parents to read.
The Best for Parents certification allows you to make well-informed suggestions regarding your student’s housing. You can feel good about a certified Best for Parents apartment, knowing that along with the perks that your student wants, it has the safety and management measures in place that will give you peace of mind.
With over 10 years of experience connecting parents with universities and university communities and an A+ rating from the BBB, UniversityParent is the trusted resource for college parents as well as an invaluable tool for universities and advertisers.
