Safety and security is a concern for me. Are there any USF apartments with alarm systems?

Walking Distance to USF

Safety and security should be high on any USF student's list when searching for a new apartment near campus. Alarm systems are a great way to help promote safety and security within your unit and the apartment community. While an alarm system can't guarantee your apartment will be protected, it sure can help. Consider one of the USF apartments below if you want an alarm system in your next home.

ON50 Apartments come standard with an alarm system. On top of having an alarm system, ON50 Apartments is also a gate community that has courtesy patrols. Other great community features at this USF apartment complex include: a computer lab, nature views, community BBQ grills, coffee bar, on-site car wash center, game room, club house, resort-style pool, basketball court, and hot tub. But USF students won't just be impressed by the community amenities at ON50 Apartments. The homes themselves at ON50 have their own long lists of great perks. Balconies, patios, vaulted ceilings, wood floors, private bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and much more await USF students who sign a lease at ON50.

Oaks at Stone Fountain is another USF apartment community that has alarm systems in all of there units. A security gate with controlled access compliments the alarm systems. Oaks at Stone Fountain offers USF students one, two, or three bedroom floor plans. Each one is reasonably priced and comes with plenty of space for each tenant. The apartment amenities at Oaks are the real draw for most USF students. Some of the highlights include: vaulted ceilings, crown molding, upgraded countertops, walk-in closet, private bathrooms, storage space, and a balcony or patio. One thing to note, however, is that they only offer joint leases for the entire unit. Therefore, all roommates must work together to pay the full rent each month, rather than individual leases for each tenant. Oaks at Stone Fountain is located very close to USF. The community is positioned south of East Fletcher Avenue between 19th and 20th streets.

Avalon Heights is my final pick for a great USF apartment community that includes alarm systems in all of their units. Avalon Heights is located across the street from USF, so getting to class every day is a breeze. Avalon Heights has an awesome resort-style pool, private kitchenettes and balconies in each room, and recently upgraded amenities. Community features at Avalon Heights include: a coffee bar, on-site car wash center, computer lab, business center, game room, club house, community grills, security gate with controlled access, courtesy patrols, hot tub, tanning bed, 24-hour fitness center, tennis court and a sand volleyball court.
