Health & Safety Inspections are a common practice in student housing across the nation and serve as a way to assess if the living condition is ideal for student living. We only perform these one time a semester unless we have reasonable cause to enter an apartment otherwise.
Our Management Team has decades of combined experience assessing student communities in the United States. It is not our intention to violate rights of a resident and we do not look through drawers or personal items.
The Health & Safety Inspections are handled only by full time, professional management of the Regency & Villas Apartments and are never conducted by part-time staff or student staff.

💭 Why we perform Health & Safety Inspections ____________________________________________
As a student housing community, nearly all of our residents are on their own for the first time since leaving their parents home in which they lived for nearly 20 years. In addition to safety and cleanliness concerns, we need to ensure that basic maintenance and apartment care if being performed. Not only is this a learning opportunity for the student, it also provides cost savings to the property when we catch issues early as many students are not sure what they should be mentioning to us! Subsequently, this saves money to the resident once they move out as well!
