Enclave West. Premiere Student Housing for Southern Illinois University Edwardsville SIUE

SIUE Luxury Student Living

You are in a tiny dorm room. You are trying to study, but your roommate is blasting music. You even have to share a bathroom with people you don’t know and who don’t clean up after themselves. You stop, close your eyes, and dream of being in a beautiful living space where you can escape the craziness of dorm life. There is an option available that will make that dream come true. Axis Edwardsville opens the door to Luxury Student Living that will let you experience the ultimate college living environment.

At Axis Edwardsville, you can leave the stress of living in a dorm behind and just focus on relaxing and living the good life. Instead of having a roommate not of your choice, ask your best friend(s) to join you in moving into a two or four bedroom apartment or use the Axis roommate matching service to find the right person or people that you are compatible with to share an apartment. Your new home will be furnished for you and awaiting your arrival.

Experience amenities that will make you feel like you are on vacation every day. Begin your day with yoga or pilates or use the 24-hour fitness center. After class, it’s time to focus on studying and homework. Make use of the 24-hour study pods to have a quiet nook to get down to business. In your spare time and on weekends, use the tanning bed, play volleyball or swim, hang out in the clubhouse or grill out with your friends. All of this luxury, but only steps away from SIUE.

If spacious living and high level amenities are what you are seeking, contact us and allow our staff to set up a tour to see the luxury apartments that you are destined to live in.
