No one knows your son or daughter more than you do. As a parent we know it matters where your student lives when away from home. At Echo 1055 we give your student the college experience they want and the academic environment to succeed whether in or out of the classroom. We get it-you didn’t live like this in college-but they will and they will love the positive environment, so they can experience their best college life!
24/7 On-Call Staff
With on-site professional management and maintenance, and on-call staff available 24/7, we're always here to address your student's needs. Reach out by phone, text us or submit an online work order with your secure portal and we will be right on it!
All our units are fully furnished to the tilt. Only thing you need to bring are the linens-(remember extra-long full-size beds at Echo 1055) and dishes. Of course, bring personal items and things of that nature to make it feel like home. You can do us and them a favor by giving them a crash course on using a dishwasher and how to do a load of laundry. All our units come with a full-size washer and dryer. That “Rebel Red” can turn “Rebel Pink” within a quick cycle.
Roommate Matching and Requests
Can students of the opposite gender share an apartment?
Yes, if all roommates give approval, and your guarantor is ok with it. Echo 1055 will not use roommate matching to match members of the opposite gender.
What happens if after I move in I don’t like the people in my apartment?
Should there be differences that simply cannot be worked out, residents are able to transfer, dependent on availability (a transfer fee applies, and the transfer fee will be required to pay the rental rate for the new bedroom).
How does free roommate matching work?
We make finding roommates easy. Just download and complete the roommate matching form. You can identify any friends you would like to room with or tell us your preferences in roommate; TV watching, noise level, study habits, music etc. and we’ll find you your next best friends. Alternately, if you do not wish to select your own roommates, we can place you in an apartment according to your choice of apartment size and your gender. When there is a vacant bedroom in an apartment, that room can be leased at any time at the discretion of Echo 1055. However, roommates placed by our management team will always meet the gender requirements of the current residents sharing that specific apartment.

Do I need to bring my own furniture?
Echo 1055 provides top quality furnishings throughout each suite and in your private bedroom.

We recommend that you contact your roommates prior to moving-in to coordinate common area furnishings/luxuries, such as; televisions, stereos, shower curtain hooks & shower curtains, bath mats, trash cans, plates, silverware, cups, pots & pans, etc. For your own personal space, you will need to bring your bath and grooming products as well as towels, linens, pillows, and whatever else makes you feel at home. Our Community Ambassadors are a great resource for planning your move – don’t hesitate to call them with questions or simply to feel reassured about what you’ve already packed.
