Most of us with college experience can think back to a time where dorm life was a real drag. From the cramped rooms to the thin walls, to the overall sterile design, college living wasn’t always pretty. But few experiences were as memorable. We recognized this, and sought to create a hip living environment that would provide a perfect balance of privacy and fun that Florida State University students are looking for. The result is Onyx: luxury student housing with a full-range of amenities, from an outdoor pool to a fitness center, just a short walk to campus. Off-campus student housing at FSU doesn’t get much better than this.
There are very few people who enjoy lugging a 50 pound futon up six flights on stairs on a 90 degree day in August. Thankfully, all of Onyx’s apartments come fully-furnished and feature high-end appliances, not to mention central air for those predictably humid days. And just in case you come dragging 6 or 7 suitcases along for the ride, our friendly management staff will be there to help with move-in day. With two residential lobbies – one leading to the pool deck courtyard and one leading to the serenity garden – and 24 hour access to our student representatives and maintenance staff, Onyx has got you covered. Available in studio, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom sizes for this fall.
Good question. We start by making the safety and comfort of our residents our top priority. The Onyx building features study lounges on every floor, conference rooms, a coffee bar, and solid bedroom doors to minimize noise. There is also an outdoor study area with Wi-Fi access so students can study while enjoying the sunshine. To ensure our residents feel secure, our building also features a state-of-the-art electronic safety system. Additionally, our on-site maintenance staff is committed to fulfilling every maintenance request within 24 hours of the initial work order. We know the foundation for success at FSU starts with a comfortable living environment. Let us take care of that for you.
As long as you’re here, why not join our team? Students looking for a job this fall should consider Onyx for part-time work as a Community Assistant. Each year we provide these opportunities to local college students looking for a fun place to work—Onyx is a rare experience and perfect for your resume.
Our application and lease process is simple and tailored to today’s savvy student and parent. The lease process may be done in the office or entirely online. Starting with the application, each resident must pass a background check. After signing a lease, a guarantor (usually a parent) of each student will need to sign the Guaranty Agreement, which is then attached to the completed lease. Our leases are by-the-bed, which means that all residents are individually responsible for his or her own payment. By designing the leasing process this way, we promote a safe and responsible community for residents and their guests. For students who are new to the area or don’t have roommates chosen, we can assist in matching roommates using our highly successful roommate matching questionnaire.
