We want your college student to be successful while they live in our Western Michigan University student housing. They need a good foundation and lots of support to achieve this success, and we support their productivity by them with a fully equipped on-site computer lab. When students live in our WMU housing, they can stay healthy with our state-of-the-art fitness center. Campus Court at Knollwood meets every need that your student will have while they’re college, so they can enjoy the college experience they came here for.
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 Campus Court at Knollwood for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why Campus Court at Knollwood is your student’s best housing option!

Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Campus Court at Knollwood offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.
Affordable Floor Plans
Campus Court at Knollwood has 17 spacious floor plan options so your student will easily be able to find one to suit his/her needs. We have studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom apartment homes. Each resident has their own bedroom and bathroom.
Fully Furnished or Unfurnished
Campus Court at Knollwood offers furnished and unfurnished apartments! In a furnished apartment, each student will have a full-sized bed, chest of drawers, night stand, desk and desk chair.

The kitchen comes fully equipped with energy efficient appliances: refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, glass-top stove and microwave. Each apartment also has a washer & dryer.
If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we 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 Campus Court at Knollwood, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from pizza parties to karaoke nights, from resume building classes to pool parties. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at Western Michigan University, as well as events happening around town, so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing Campus Court at Knollwood as a Living-Learning environment!
