Summer’s finally here! With school being officially done, there’s no better way to spend your time than by the pool. We have some awesome poolside events coming up that we hope you’ll join us for. Don’t forget that all of our events are completely free, and if there’s an event you would like us to put on, let us know and we can make it happen! #HAGS

Maintenance Tips

Service Requests: We would like to give our maintenance crew a huge shoutout as they work very hard to get service requests completed in a 48-hour timeframe! Please make sure that you put in work orders for your apartment ASAP when you have identified a potential problem. You can submit service requests via your online portal, over the phone, or in the office. Our Community Assistants will gladly help with any issues you may be having.

After-Hours Requests: If it is after hours, please call the on-call number at (775) 770-4887, and the technician or Community Assistant that is on call will determine whether the work order is an emergency or not.

Reminders & Updates

We hope that you all have a few days off to soak up the sun this summer! We want our whole community to be able to enjoy our pool and spa during the warm months. With that said, glass is not allowed in the pool area! If you have glass in the pool area, you will be asked to remove it. Please also keep in mind that our guest policy is still in effect in the pool enclosure.

If you are planning a trip over the summer, be sure to lock your doors when you leave! Also, take all your personal belongings from your car into your room. We hope that you all have safe flights and drives as you depart for your vacations!

If you have any roommate issues or concerns, please contact the front office and talk with our Resident Director about what is going on. We are here to help you and your roommates have a great living experience here at The Highlands.

Summer Like a Local

Whether you’re going home or staying put for the summer, take advantage of all our community has to offer! Summers can be a great chance to enjoy the area in some new and different ways. With the hectic pace of school, many students miss out on opportunities to get involved and have fun in their local community during the academic year — it’s time to change that! From festivals to parks and local attractions, below are some ways you can summer like a local. As a bonus, most of them are either free or very affordable!

  • Do something touristy
  • Visit a farmers market
  • Check out a local sporting event
  • Visit your Chamber of Commerce website to find out about local attractions
  • Find a calendar of nearby fairs and festivals
  • Enjoy Fourth of July festivities and fireworks
  • Hike or bike a nearby trail
  • Volunteer with a local organization
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to an outdoor movie or concert
  • Run or walk a local 5K

We’ll also be planning events and activities for you throughout the summer, and if you need ideas for other fun things to do in the area, please let us know. We have information on area resources and a local calendar of events on hand to give you plenty of options. Have a memorable and fun summer!
