When you are making a housing decision with your son or daughter, we recommend that you carefully examine the fire safety systems available in each housing option. University Ridge is a fully sprinklered community, which provides University Ridge parents with extra peace of mind. University Ridge also has other important safety features:
- Hardwired smoke detectors in each apartment
- Access to University Ridge buildings is electronically controlled
- Access to each bedroom is controlled by a deadbolt lock
- University police patrol University Ridge regularly
- University Ridge staff perform several nightly walks through each building
University Ridge offers a great balance of privacy and social interaction. All bedrooms are single occupancy rooms within larger apartments and each apartment has semi-private bathrooms. This allows University Ridge residents to enjoy a private living space as well as the opportunity to create lasting friendships with their apartment mates.
A full sized kitchen provides great flexibility in meal options to University Ridge residents, allowing them to choose between a Full Meal Plan, an affordable Block Meal Plan, or buying their own groceries. University Ridge is also extremely convenient for parents. Our available summer storage options mean that your son or daughter does not need to move all his or her belongings out each spring and back in each fall.
Finally, University Ridge Apartments has great amenities, such as a cardio fitness center, dishwashers, air conditioning, wired and wireless internet access, and washer/dryers in each apartment, making it a great place for East Stroudsburg University students to call home.
