We know you have choices, but there are solid reasons to choose University Place Apartments. Those reasons can be summed up in 3 words…

Location. Value. Convenience.

The Best…Location!

Have you heard the saying about the three most important factors in real estate? It’s location, location, and yes, LOCATION!

You cannot beat our location! We are right across the street from the University of Missouri campus at the corner of College and University Avenues. You will actually be closer to many of your classes than if you lived in the dorms.

Unfortunately, if you live at UPA instead of the dorms you will have to give up some things. Will you miss the common bathroom down the hall? That “spacious” open feeling for most dorm rooms? How about the delicious cafeteria food?… Didn’t think so.

University Place is within walking distance of any location on campus including the hospitals and stadium. It is only a short 5 block walk to the shops, restaurants, bars and businesses of Downtown Columbia. Also, we are located right on the Columbia City bus route so it’s easy to get anywhere in town even without your own car.

The Best…Value!

We don’t need to shout about what a great value University Place Apartments are… others are doing it for us. The University of Missouri Student News named us “Overall Best Value” in an independent evaluation of all student-housing options in Columbia.

Our rental rates include:

  • Furnished 2 or 3 bedroom apartment
  • FREE utilities including central air conditioning, heat, lights, water & sewer
  • FREE high-speed Internet service
  • FREE Cable TV with over 70 channels
  • FREE 24 hour Fitness Facility

These costs can average $150 to $300 per month at other apartments. When you take all costs you’ll need to pay at other apartments, combined with the convenience of our location saving you both time and gas, we think you’ll come to the same conclusion the University Student New came to:

University Place Apartments are the Best Overall Value in Columbia!!


The Most…Convenient!

Wouldn’t it be nice to move in somewhere, unpack your bags and watch a movie on Cable that night? Or jump onto Facebook to let everyone know you arrived safe and sound?

At University Place, when you open your door you’re settled in!

Our “all-inclusive” arrangement means NO-HASSLES! First-time renters and international residents can skip all the time-consuming and aggravating steps to try to get service from an internet provider, activate your cable TV, switch over and turn on the gas and electric utilities, and have the water and sewer bills put into your name.

Everything is turned on and ready to go before you even step in the door!

Everything is paid for in your monthly rent. No separate bills to divide up between the roommates. Worse, no worrying about whether your forgetful roommate paid the electric bill when it was their month.

We make it easy! All you need to do is stop by the office and drop off one check each month!

If you prefer, you can pay your rent online using a credit card or set-up an automatic charge each month on your credit card and then forget about it. (There is a small service charge for credit card payments.)
