Regent knows that students are busy enough as it is, and that looking for housing can be a challenging and new experience. There are more factors than just convenience and affordability that come into play when trying to find the right off-campus living solution.


The Regent Team encourages parental involvement to ensure students are knowledgeable and comfortable in dealing with Regent and our leasing and management teams. We highly recommend that parents of students who are considering Regent, contact us and speak with our senior leasing staff.
