Home Options

At University Commons you can choose from a variety of sizes and styles of villas, town homes, or apartment homes. The ninety-two residences consist of:

  • Twelve Villas
  • Twenty Townhomes
  • Sixty Apartment Homes

A description of each home style is provided below.




On the “lower road” these are 2-story homes with cathedral ceilings on the main level and 9′ or higher ceilings on the walk-out lower (2nd) level. Bedrooms range from 2-4 and baths range from 2.5 – 3.5 depending on how you use the space. A two car attached garage and a huge “basement” style storage area below the entry, kitchen and breakfast room are features we all appreciate. The main story has 1.5 baths and 1 or 2 bedrooms and fireplace. In the walk out lower level there are 1 or 2 bedrooms and a spacious full bath and family room. Some owners have added a second bath and/or a fireplace. 2676 SF


Across from the Villas on the “lower road”, these 1 bedroom plus study and 2 bath homes offer one story living but provide a back door (up a few stairs) that opens on the upper road adjacent to a Townhome II entrance. This means a covered, safe stair for accessing the mail room, meals and more at Houghton Hall. Lots of storage, formal dining room and kitchen that opens to a breakfast room and a “bonus” room. Attached 1 car garage. 1805 SF

On the upper road above the TownHome I’s, the patio for these homes is over the Townhome I’s garage. 2 bedrooms (one is a loft bedroom upstairs) with 2.5 baths. Bonus 116 SF storage closet upstairs. This is a great floorplan with a laundry room, breakfast room and family room off the kitchen. Formal dining and cathedral ceilings in living area and master bedroom. 2 car attached garage. The fireplace opens on both sides (family room and living room). 2453 SF


Multiple floor plans. All units here are in the “big building” with elevator access to garage parking, 10’x4’ individual storage spaces and all the activities in Houghton Hall. So easy to socialize and see your neighbors, take a class, listen to a recital, get your mail and more. The apartments vary in size from 2 bedroom 2 bath one story units to 3+ bedroom, 2+ bath 2 story units (top floor). Some have an “atrium” room, others have a terrace. Top (4th) floor homes offer cathedral ceilings. 1270 SF – 2531 SF.
