THE CONNECTION IS A LIVING-LEARNING ENVIRONMENT, MADE ESPECIALLY FOR STUDENTS!
We want your college student to be successful throughout their career at Sam Houston State University. They need a good foundation and support to gain this success. At The Connection, we want to help support their productivity by giving them a fully equipped computer lab and individual study rooms with dry erase walls for study groups. We want to keep them healthy with a state-of-the-art fitness center. We also want to help them relax by giving them a tanning salon, fully loaded game room with arcade games, and four resort style pools for lounging. The Connection meets every need that your student will have while in college so they can achieve what they came here for in an enjoyable atmosphere.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of The Connection for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why The Connection is your student’s best housing option!
On-site Professional Staff
The Connection has a full Community Assistant staff that lives on-site and is able to help your student 24-hours a day. The business office at The Connection has convenient hours so that your student can fill out maintenance requests, pick up packages, and get any other needs met anytime they come up. Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. The Connection offers 24 hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.
Affordable Floor Plans
The Connection has four spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have one bedrooms, two bedrooms, three bedrooms and four bedrooms. All floor plans have private bathrooms. Your students rent includes all utilities (water, sewer, and trash), expanded cable, high-speed Ethernet or WIFI(compatible), furniture, easy access to The Connection amenities, and so much more!
The Connection is a fully-furnished community, saving you money! Each student will have a full sized bed, large desk and chair, and five drawer dresser in their bedroom. All floor plans have a living area with custom leather sectionals, ottoman, end table (C1 & D1), entertainment center, and dining room table and chairs.
If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! We will have them fill out a Roommate Matching sheet so we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we will spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!
Resident Events to Keep Students Involved
While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At The Connection, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our Community Assistant staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from speed-dating to karaoke nights, from resume building classes to football tournaments. Annually, The Connection has a Resident Appreciation Week at the beginning of the fall semester, a tailgate before selected SHSU football games, a Casino Night at the beginning of the spring semester, and a Crawfish Festival during the middle of the spring semester for all SHSU students to enjoy. We will also keep our residents connected to programs and sporting events going on at Sam Houston State University so they don’t miss anything!
We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing The Connection at Huntsville as a Living-Learning environment!
