A Student Choice Apartment Community

The Best Option for Off-Campus Living

Choose Student Choice by Steve Brown Apartments and get the convenience of living minutes from your classes and all-inclusive (and exclusive) living.


Individual leasing allows you and your roommates to pay rent separately, so you don’t have to worry about roommates not paying their share. If you don’t have anyone to live with, ask for our roommate matching service!


All utilities, furniture, Internet with speeds up to 50Mbps, laundry, and all of the amenities The Highlander has to offer are included in a simple, low monthly Facilities Fee.


We offer 12-month leases beginning and ending in August, and we also offer a limited number of 5 month leases that begin in August and end in December, or begin in January and end in May.

My experience in Highlander Apartments has been really good. One of my friend was looking for an apartment in this area and I suggested that he get an apartment in Highlander. The place is really quiet!
