A Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,

The impact of the COVID-19 virus has been significant. This is undoubtedly the most challenging time we’ve seen for Universities, students and families of students across the nation. In response to these new challenges, Blanton Common management and staff are continually evaluating the health and safety needs, technical needs and management preparedness for the benefit of all students that make Blanton Common their home so they can rest assured they have chosen the right place to live.

Our goal at Blanton Common is to continue to provide students with a great place to live out their college experience, and ensuring we are on top of current health safety needs. What sets us apart from other student living communities? Each resident has their own private bedroom with in-suite bathroom allowing for maximum privacy and separation from roommates. While located near all public transportation options, Blanton Common offers free parking giving students the opportunity to remain in control of their transportation without the added expense of monthly parking fees. Blanton Common has a free shuttle to take you to and from campus. In addition, the leasing office has 2 private business centers and a computer lab for those who wish to have the added benefit of a separate study space.

We have upgraded to Boingo wireless internet service, at no extra cost, which provides more than enough bandwidth to accommodate the increased need for teleconferencing and online courses.

Lastly, during these challenging times, it is important to know that Blanton Common is professionally managed by highly experienced, long tenured, local management company. JMG Realty, Inc., an Institute for Real Estate Management® Accredited Management Organization®, one of only 560 firms nationwide to hold this elite designation, manages a portfolio of approximately 25,000 units located throughout the Southwest, Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast. JMG Realty, Inc. is comprised of 600 on-site professionals as well as 60 corporate and divisional employees and has a long history of managing purpose-built student housing communities in major markets throughout the country. We have managed Blanton Common since July of 2019 and our student housing team includes veterans in property management as well as former on-site marketing consultants that have risen through the ranks. We are highly committed and strive to provide the best possible experience for all our student residents, as well as their parents, for however long you call Blanton Common home.
