Why MSC?

The college learning experience doesn’t stop in the classroom. It is also a time to learn independence. We try to make that learning experience easy.

  • Our maintenance team – If something breaks in their apartment, you won’t have to spend an hour on the phone with them. Just call our award-winning maintenance team. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
  • Rent payment is easy – You can pay online, or you can setup automatic, recurring payments so that you don’t have to remember every month.
  • We make the moving process smooth – Moving your student in and out can be a real headache. When move-in day arrives, your keys to a clean, fresh apartment will be ready. On move-out day simply pack up and drop off the keys. We’ll handle the cleaning!

My apartment is submetered. Do I need to set up my utilities?

Management Services Corporation will set up your water, sewer, and gas service through a third party company called National Water and Power (follow the links in our Mover’s Guide).
