Luxury College Dorms Offer Upscale Amenities

Campus Crest has a "full delivery model," Rollins explains, with its own general contractor, supply firm and asset management company.

"It's a more efficient way to get a product to the market," he said. "It saves time and increases quality."

Jeremy Ladnier, 21, lives at the Grove Mobile, which serves students from the University of South Alabama. Originally from Hurley, Miss., Ladnier said he enjoys the "friendly atmosphere" of the staff.

"Every night, someone is on-call out front or on the phone if something goes wrong," he said.

He pays $505 a month to share a three-bedroom unit with two friends.

He also enjoys that the property is brimming with college life. The volleyball and basketball courts and soccer fields in Ladnier's apartment building are standard in Campus Crescent housing. Ladnier just moved in a month ago and only has had time to enjoy the property's gym and tanning bed, however.

"They're the only ones I've gotten to so far," he said. "It was good."
