At The Cottages of Columbia, you’re just a six-minute drive from classes at The University of Missouri, Columbia, so keep a car in the onsite parking and enjoy a speedy commute. Alternatively, boost your fitness with a 21-minute bike ride onto campus, or jump on the resident shuttle instead.
Start your day with a workout in the 24-hour fitness center, which is equipped with strength equipment, cardio machines and free weights. If you prefer to exercise outdoors, swim a few laps of the swimming pool, or get some friends together for a game on the sand volleyball court.
When you get back home, head to your private bathroom to freshen up, then take a few minutes to catch up with your roommates. You’ll share your place with up to three others if you choose to live in a Lodge or Manor, or you can share a duplex or cottage or with one or two friends respectively.
If you don’t need to study, head outside and fire up the barbecue grills, or pop to the coffee bar to swap stories about your day. Alternatively, stay at home and watch cable TV, or connect to the internet and Skype friends and family back home.
When hunger strikes, you’ll find everything you need to cook up all your favourite food in the fully-equipped kitchen. There’s also a washer/dryer in every unit, so you’ll find it easy to keep on top of your laundry.
All-inclusive utility packages take the stress out of managing your student budget, and security is a priority: there’s gated access and a courtesy patrol officer.
