Moving off campus is a rite of passage for most students - another step on their road to independence. At The Junction at Iron Horse, our goal is to make that transition as easy as possible for you and your child by providing outstanding student housing.


Professional Management and Maintenance
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Junction offers professional on-site management and 24-hour emergency maintenance. Our staff lives and works on site and annually participates in extensive customer service training to make your student's living experience a memorable one. Out local executive director is supported by skilled and experienced teams focused on resident services, maintenance and residential life. Residents who need assistance can meet with team members in the office or fill out work request forms online for added convenience.

Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At our University of Arizona apartments, we offer individual leases by the bedroom (not the unit). This is different from a traditional lease, with one major benefit: Your child is never responsible for paying a roommate's rent, even if they graduate or transfer.

As a part of the lease agreement, The Junction at Iron Horse requires each student to have a Guarantor (a person 25 years of age or older who is a resident of the U.S. that will vouch for the financial responsibility of the lease). If a Guarantor is not available, your student can provide a "Prepaid Approval," one and a half installments of prepaid rent, applied to the final 1.5 lease installments.

All-Inclusive Living

-------------------------------------
Moving your child out on their own can be expensive. We try to ease that financial burden with our all-inclusive living. We support families with many free amenities that encourage your student to thrive. There is no additional cost for:
  • Furniture
  • Full-Size Washer & Dryer
  • Internet with Wifi
  • Cable TV
  • Fitness Center
  • Computer Center with Free Printing
  • Study Rooms
  • Tanning Beds
  • Monthly Social Events
  • Water/Sewer/Trash

Safety & Security
----------------------------
The safety and security of residents is our number one priority at The Junction at Iron Horse. We offer secured windows, keyed apartment and bedroom doors, courtesy officers and community assistants who are on-call and live on-site.

Residential Life
-------------------------
We are proud to have a community with a vibrant residential life program focused on social, physical, charitable, and educational activities, and many free food events, too! Our residents are active participants in a variety of monthly resident events hosted by our dedicated team of community assistants and managers.

Some of our educational activities include everything from skin cancer awareness to tutoring support. Our residents meet new friends and create long-lasting memories during our popular social events, including volleyball tournaments and breakfast on-the-go.


Community Assistants
------------------------------------

Every year, many students hope for the opportunity to become a Junction Community Assistant (CA). CAs are assigned to groups of residents and offer peer guidance and support during a student's transition to off-campus housing. CAs contact residents weekly, and assist them with everything from how to use appliances to roommate problem-solving.

The Junction hires approximately 3 CAs a year, paid at an hourly rate. The CA position provides students with valuable resume-building experience through their work as a community leader, problem-solver, event planner, sales associate, and friend.
