CHAMPAIGN, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2012) - Living on campus, such as in dorms or university apartments, is an essential part of the college experience to many university students. However, many find that after a year or two, it is time to move away from campus and transition into adulthood as they complete their final college years. A recent report from Illinois State Magazine showcases the history of the school's residential options, expanding a variety of buildings and services as student enrollment grew. Bankier Apartments applauds Illinois State University for responding to the needs of students, but adds that many students may seek alternatives depending on their lifestyle needs during college.
Many tenants of Bankier Apartments are students who attend another leading Illinois university, the University of Illinois. The complex notes that with proper funding, many schools are able to expand housing to allow students to be closer to home. ISU explains its growth, "From the days of placing students in the homes of citizens during the late 1800s, through the construction boom of residence halls during the 1960s, to renovations in recent years -- housing has always been a priority at Illinois State." Like many other universities, the school has developed housing specifically for groups of students, such as those who are married or entering as freshmen.
Bankier Apartments responds that despite the variety of options that on-campus housing can provide, there are also factors that they do not address. In a recent press statement, Bankier Apartments notes, "Many students may choose to live off campus simply for a need to experience life independently. Since many schools allow students to pay for on-campus housing through arranged tuition, these students may not be able to grasp lessons in responsibility -- such as paying rent and utilities -- that are essential to life after college."
The apartment complex recognizes that on-campus housing provides convenience; they are close to classes, libraries and other students who can offer a supportive environment. However, Bankier Apartments explains that living on campus can be isolating for students who want to experience life outside of college as they attend classes. In addition, living on campus may prove uncomfortable for older students who may not fit in with the majority of younger students that live in those units. Bankier Apartments provides convenient and affordable living as the complex has locations near the University of Illinois.
Bankier Apartments provides renters with a diverse catalogue of floorplans at a variety of sizes and prices. As such, Bankier Apartments is able to cater to the needs of University of Illinois students, who turn to this complex when looking for alternatives to on-campus dorm rooms. Bankier Apartments provides the privacy and lifestyle that dorm living cannot, and as such is a popular choice among students looking for their own apartment.
