“I have been living here for two years and it’s safe, affordable, and very friendly. I have a junior suite which means I get my own room and bathroom and I share a living area that includes a kitchen and couch with my roommate. I love that it’s so close to campus and close to anything else you could need. The staff is amazing, they are all really nice! I haven’t had any problems this year, and it’s a good space for me since I have my own room.I would recommend the Edge to anyone looking to stay close to campus for a good price and good amenities. “

Imagine bragging to your friends back home about the villa you’re now occupying. They’ll be thousands of miles away imaging you lounging in a hammock while cursing your name. That alone would make the Villas worthwhile, even without the dope reviews.

Our favorite Review

“I really enjoyed my time staying with Temple Villas. I have tried other leasing companies and Temple Villas were the only company that took care of maintenance on time. Also I have several packages sent every week and they were great with receiving them and letting me know when I got a package. They are also very fairly priced in the area and very nice to deal with.”
