Consider the McManus Advantage

All utilities included

Gas, electric, water, and heating costs are all taken care of. McManus residents are not responsible for any deposits or additional bills, with the exception usage-based charges for optional land-line phone service. Many off-campus apartments require residents to pay the full price of utilities, which can range from $100 per month to $200 per month in the winter.

Cable television and Internet included

Each room has a high-speed ethernet connection and in-room wireless Internet access, as well as basic cable service. At an off-campus apartment, cable and Internet bills would easily add another $50 to $200 in monthly expenses. We also offer free printing to the ground floor computer lab.

On-site maintenance staff included

On-site maintenance staff is available to fix small problems, such as burned-out light bulbs and flipped circuits/blown fuses, almost immediately. The University’s Facilities Management Department handles slightly larger issues, such as clogged drains or electrical problems, within a day or two. At off-campus apartments, however, residents may have to wait several days for plumbing and/or electrical problems to be fixed by a contractor.

Helpful front desk staff included

McManus front desk staff members sort mail, collect and distribute packages, issue keys, and assist residents with problems such as lockouts. McManus residents who are locked out of their rooms can be let in right away, whereas residents of off-campus buildings may have to wait several hours for a locksmith and pay a fee for the service.
