The University of Miami is in a housing supply crisis, with an unprecedented wait list of nearly 1,600. Merrick Manor, located down the street from the Coral Gables campus, is alleviating the stress for some UM students by offering luxurious and safe condominiums for purchase – with a special new incentive.
Merrick Manor is giving a 1% list price discount to UM students (with verification of active student status required). Brokers representing students are entitled to a 5% commission.
A recent Miami Herald article detailed how dire the university’s housing deficit truly is. It has reached the point where South Florida-based students are no longer qualified to live on campus, forcing many to miss out on the full college experience. One such student, Julia Tsagaroulis, told the Herald about her brutal commute from Pembroke Pines to Coral Gables for classes.
Tsagaroulis “leaned on caffeine and phone calls to avoid falling asleep at the wheel,” the Herald reported.
Merrick Manor is already a big hit with UM families, as students get to enjoy the perks and convenience of condo living and easily get to and from campus in just minutes.
Located at 301 Altara Avenue, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor’s pet-friendly amenities and lifestyle truly cannot be beat. Merrick Manor is just steps away from the world-class Shops at Merrick Park and has a Zillow Walk Score of 77, making it “very walkable.”
