The Flats at Ridgeview is expected to open in Fall 2018

AUSTIN, TX (December 18, 2017) — Campus Advantage®, a leader in student housing, providing property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development services, today announced the addition of 252 beds to its growing portfolio of managed student housing properties, with the addition of a new property in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The Flats at Ridgeview taps into Campus Advantage’s successful history of third-party management capabilities and services, and brings the Company’s managed portfolio to 30,480 beds.

Currently being developed near Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine and New Mexico State University, The Flats at Ridgeview is a garden-style community that will consist of one- and two-bedroom apartments with a washer and dryer, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and ceramic tiled showers. Community amenities will include a pool, fitness center, four study rooms, a conference room, a clubhouse, and game room. The community was designed with professional students in mind and the amenity package is geared towards individuals looking to advance their academics and career.

Catalyst, an Austin-based agency specializing in integrated marketing for student and multifamily housing, will also manage the brand development which will reflect a career- and academic-focused community.

“We couldn’t be more excited to help introduce this new property to the students and future residents in Las Cruces,” said Katy Smerko, Vice President of Operations at Campus Advantage. “For us, student housing management is more than just providing a place to live. It’s providing an experience for each and every one of our residents. We pride ourselves in our dedication to maintaining and operating properties to the highest standard and I am confident that our property management expertise, as well as our exceptional operations team and training programs, will create an environment that exceeds residents’ expectations.”

Campus Advantage was sought after to manage The Flats at Ridgeview because of its extensive experience with leasing new developments and Catalyst’s successful brand creations and integrated marketing platform. Under the Company’s management, The Flats at Ridgeview will benefit from programs that deliver a resident-focused experience that inspires and equips residents to thrive in all areas of life. This includes Campus Advantage’s highly regarded Students First® program which is designed to ensure that residents who choose to live at Campus Advantage communities have more opportunities to achieve success both now and in the future.

The Flats at Ridgeview is scheduled to open in Fall 2018.
