From The Reserve at Columbia, you can jump on one of the regular shuttle buses and be at the University of Missouri in 15 minutes. If you have a car, you can drive to Columbia College and Stephens College in under 10 minutes, so stop by Fretboard Coffee on your way for a quick pick-me-up before class.
When you’re not busy with school, make the most of the amenities and activities back at The Reserve at Columbia. On warm days, soak up the sun by the resort-style pool, followed by a dip in the hot tub. Enjoy an alfresco barbecue lunch on the outdoor grills, then challenge your neighbors to a game of basketball on the indoor court. When the weather gets cooler, head inside to the games room to master the Xbox, or burn off extra energy in the state-of-the art fitness center.
Whether you choose to share an apartment with friends or live alone, your student housing comes fully furnished with everything you need. Whip up a delicious meal on the stove, using the ingredients you purchased from the Downtown Columbia Farmers’ & Artisan Markets. After dinner, stretch out on the sofa and watch cable TV, or Skype loved ones back home. When it’s time to knuckle down and study, hit the books alongside your friends in the communal study lounge, or connect to the Wi-Fi at the spacious desk in your apartment. Knowing that you have access to an emergency maintenance team should a problem arise, you can focus all of your energy on your studies.
