Block Housing at Rambler 

What is block housing? 

Block housing simply means leasing a block (or grouping) of units within an apartment complex, usually next to each other or located on the same floor. Its purpose is to accommodate large groups wanting to live together or near each other.

For example, if you and a group of 15 others hope to live together, you could opt to lease a block at Rambler! You would be split up into different units, but have neighboring units, or units on the same floor.

Who leases blocks of housing?

Anyone can secure a housing block! We’ve seen various groups, including pledge classes, sorority sisters, fraternity brothers, sports teams, or individuals affiliated with the same orgs, choose this arrangement.

What are the benefits of block housing? 

1. Live with your best friends without sacrificing personal space

Block housing provides the opportunity to live in close proximity to your closest friends while maintaining personal space. You’ll enjoy your small group of roommates, with all your favorite people just a door away or nearby in the same building. Your individual bedroom and bathroom ensure personal comfort, and you’ll only share common living and kitchen areas with your roommates, not the entire group.

2. Variety of gathering spaces

Rambler’s block housing offers ideal communal areas for group gatherings, study sessions, or pre-game gatherings before events or football games! Additionally, you’ll have convenient access to all of Rambler’s amenities just steps away from your door. This setup eliminates concerns about going back and forth between various facilities like the pool or gym with your friends—you’ll all enjoy the same shared amenities!

3. Promote community

Block housing offers a unique advantage to Greek life members who aren’t living in their chapter’s house but still want a similar atmosphere. Whether you didn’t secure a spot in the house, favor a smaller roommate group, or if your house is undergoing construction, leasing a block at Rambler with your friends allows you to recreate the essence of Greek living while enjoying the advantages of a modern apartment!
