Moving off campus is a rite of passage for most students – another step on their road to independence. At The Village at Chandler Crossings in East Lansing, 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 Village at Chandler Crossings offers both professional on-site management and 24-hour on-site maintenance.

Our local executive director is supported by skilled and experienced teams focused on resident services, maintenance, and residential life. Your child can seek assistance at any time by meeting in person with the office team members or by filling out a quick and easy work request online.


Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility

At our Michigan State University apartments, we offer individual leases by the bedroom, not the unit. You and your child are only responsible for paying your rent, even if your roommate graduates or transfers.

As a part of the lease agreement, The Village at Chandler Crossings 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, a “prepaid approval” is an alternative, which requires one and a half installments of prepaid rent, applied to the last 1 1/2 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 student-friendly amenities that are free and included in the overall rent. There is no additional cost for:

  • Campus Shuttle
  • Furniture
  • Washer/Dryer
  • Internet
  • Water
  • Cable TV
  • Fitness Center
  • Computer Lab with Free Printing
  • Study Rooms
  • Tanning
  • Monthly Social Events

Safety & Security

The safety and security of residents is our number one priority at The Village at Chandler Crossings. 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. Our residents are active participants in a variety of monthly resident events hosted by our dedicated team of community assistants and managers. Charitable activities we take part in include Relay for Life, toy/food drives, and community clean ups.

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 such as volleyball tournaments and breakfast on-the-go.


Community Assistants

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

The Village at Chandler Crossings hires approximately 10 CA's a year, who are 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.
