Who is eligible to live at The Village?

Anyone within the NEOMED community is eligible to live at The Village – students, faculty, and staff.

 

What does it mean when you say “independent living”?

Although The Village is on the NEOMED campus, it is not managed by NEOMED.  You are not living in a college “dorm” but rather in an apartment environment.  Each of our tenants has their own bedroom, bath and study area, is responsible for their own rent payments and apartment upkeep.

However, NEOMED does link to our security system so that there is smooth transition with your current badge/key that allows access to The Village.  Campus security will also monitor the parking lots and common areas.

 

What is the difference between a one bedroom apartment and a two bedroom apartment?

In a two bedroom apartment, each person has a private suite consisting of a bedroom, study area, walk-in closet and bathroom. This area is able to be locked off for your privacy. Common or shared, space is the kitchen, living room, and entryway.
