Welcome to Wassmer Properties 2015

Established in January 1979,  this year marks Wassmer Properties 35th anniversary for providing affordable academic housing in the safest neighborhoods surrounding the University of Kentucky for students, graduate students, staff and faculty of the University of Kentucky and BCTC.

With a property to fit any student's budget, Wassmer Properties continues to provide alternatives to the spiraling cost of University of Kentucky on-campus housing, both in the on-campus dormitories and the UK apartment complexes.

The demand for private student housing around the University of Kentucky has resulted in the development of apartment complexes in areas prone to property and violent crimes. Wassmer Properties apartment buildings and townhomes are all located in Lexington?s safest neighborhoods.

Wassmer Properties apartment buildings are all located within four blocks of the University of Kentucky's main campus. Many of our apartment buildings are closer to your classes than even the UK dormitories. Our apartments are certainly closer than the remote Commonwealth Stadium student parking lot that is both inconvenient and expensive ($265.00 for a K Permit) which is where you will have to park should you rent an apartment that is further away from UK than walking distance.

TOP TEN REASONS

Why You Should Lease From Wassmer Properties
  • 1
    Location

    Wassmer Properties owns over two dozen apartment buildings that are all located within four blocks of the University of Kentucky main campus.  90% of our apartments are situated off Euclid Ave and Woodland Ave near the UK Student Center/W.T. Young Main Library/Digital Village and the Fine Arts Center. 

  • 2
    Location

    Several of our apartment buildings share a common border with the University of Kentucky. Our apartment buildings are literallyUK's next door neighbor. You can walk to campus in less than two minutes not the 15-20 minutes it takes (each way) from the recently constructed student apartment complexes on AnglianaAve or Red Mile Road or Broadway. 

  • 3
    Location

    Walk ability is a key factor in why Wassmer Properties is 100% full every year. Even the UK website says that none of the newer UK student complexes on Broadway or Angliana are less than 5 minute walk. Students remember you will be doing this walk to and from campus at least twice a day spending 15 minutes plus each way so for over one hour you could be out in the heat/rain/snow/cold.

    UK DORMITORY COST COMPARISON

    The UK 2015-2016 dormitory rates are already posted on the University of Kentucky website:

    • $4,021.00 per semester or $1,005.25 per month in Champions Court I or II, Haggin Hall, Woodland Glen I, II, III, IV or V
    • $2,643.00 per semester or $660.75 per month in Blanding or Kirwan I, II, III, IV or Tower.

    Every single one of the Wassmer Properties apartments is LE$$ than the UK 2015-2016 dormitory rates (the rates quoted above do not include the dining plan or parking permit). In fact for our lower rental prices you get a full kitchen, living room, private bath, dishwasher, and your own bedroom with parking right outside your door.

    PARKING/PERMITS/TOWING/TICKETS

    In 2014-2015 the cost of a K parking sticker was $265.00 to park at Commonwealth Stadium. If you are a resident of Champions Court you have to take the campus bus to get to your car which is over two miles away. All Wassmer Properties apartments include an on site parking lot and a 12 month (August to July) parking permit is included with the monthly rent. Also remember the stories of the unpaid parking tickets and trying to register for classes next semester. Your friend/roommate "forgot" to tell you they got a parking ticket when they borrowed your car to get to class/library one night. Don't put yourself through that hassle again.

    This Old House

    Many, many students think renting an old house near campus would be so much fun. Most of the time this turns out not to be true. The old houses that surround UK are not insulated very well (landlords don't pay the utilities) and most have single-pane windows. The student ends up paying to heat and cool the great outdoors. The plumbing in the old houses is mostly worn out and it is possible to wait 10 minutes for the toilet to fill or your shower pressure is just enough to get your head wet. Also, by having a house there are always people over to visit and your grades are bound to suffer.

  • 7
    Safety

    The University of Kentucky Police Headquarters is located on the corner off Rose Street and Euclid Ave. A total of eight of our apartment buildings are less than one block from the UK Police Headquarters. All of our buildings are on the SAFE SIDE of the UK campus. None of our buildings are near the sketchy area off Broadway and off Red Mile Road. In fact there is a new casino being built on Red Mile Road that will only increase the problems in that area.

    $15m new Kroger Store on Euclid Ave

    In January 2015 the newest Kroger Super store opens on Euclid Ave. This new Kroger is 3 times the size of the old Kroger and will have the freshest produce, meats etc in Central Kentucky. Right next to the new Kroger is the Chevy Chase shopping area with banks, drug stores, dry cleaners, Starbucks, etc. All of this is walking distance to all of Wassmer Properties apartments. If you choose to live off South Broadway or Angliana Ave or Red Mile Road you are not located near ANY grocery stores, drug stores, or banks. Everything you need will force you to make a trip in your car.

    Don't let the bed bugs bite

    Wassmer Properties apartments are unfurnished and we do that for a reason. Our apartments all include stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and some with washer/dryers BUT we never include used sofas, used chairs, used beds, used mattresses, etc. The bed bug outbreak is all too real and we do not feel that this is a very safe option for students. Wassmer Properties cleans all of their units between residents with steam heat on our hardwood floors and steam clean (not chemical/dry carpet cleaning) all our carpets. Heat over 140 degrees is known to kill bed bugs.

    No roommate matching here

    There are horror stories all over campus of "the weird roommate" that students were matched with. There are stories of the roommate who have "borrowed" the other roommate's car keys and wrecked the car. Or the roommates that were matched and then "the weird roommate" borrowed your $150.00 text book (you were matched since you have the same major) and then "left" the your text book at the library. Or "the weird roommate" who didn't steal your credit card but took a cell phone photo of it and then used your credit card number to go shopping on the Internet right before they headed home at the end of school in May. We at Wassmer Properties think that the actual students themselves are the best judge of who is and is not a good roommate and we let all our residents bring in roommates of their own choosing.

    Bonus

    Most of Wassmer Properties apartments are efficiencies, studios apartments, one bedroom or two bedroom apartments. Live alone or with just one roommate. Living with three other roommates gets old fast. Get away from the messy party animal roommate and his/her friends or weird habits. Control you space and your student life . Study when you need to study, sleep when you need to sleep. Have 100% control of your environment and your surroundings.

There are statistics out there that over 60% of the UK students have some form of student loan debt. Now it is time to make a list of your UK priorities. Do you really need to take borrowed student loan money and spend it at an apartment complex with a swimming pool, rec room, gym, tennis courts? Not only are you spending borrowed money for facilities you may or may not need or ever use but you have to pay the money back over the next 5- 10 years with interest! Don't mortgage your future. Everyone has wants and needs. Rent only what you need.

Do the math. Add up the cost of campus dormitories and UK campus apartment complexes UK Campus Housing, mandatory meal plan, parking and compare. You’ll find that private housing is an attractive option — and we don’t kick you out for semester breaks at Christmas and Spring break.
