A Five-Star

Inspired by the elite hospitality experiences offered by top hotels, restaurants, and spas around the globe, Campus Life & Style has elevated expectations when it comes to serving our customers. Stemming from a one-of-a-kind partnership with the leading five-star hospitality and concierge service training company, CLS invested in developing a platform catering to students and parents. And as a result of that development, we spent three years training our teams under the Forbes Travel Guide before launching into our own in-house hospitality services.

Incredible expertise and deep-rooted knowledge of the highest level of service standards were applied to create a CLS hospitality training workshop for our communities, and an extensive monthly curriculum to keep these philosophies and expectations in the forefront of our teams’ minds.

Complementing our beautiful communities, this exceptional standard of service truly creates a student housing experience like none other.

What Folks Are Saying

One word: AMAZING! I absolutely loved living here. The apartments are about a mile walk to campus and there's a shuttle provided too! Bedrooms are spacious and the living rooms are great. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

The Crimson is one of the the most beautiful apartment complexes in Tuscaloosa! The staff is genuinely awesome!!

I LOVE THE CRIMSON SO MUCH. The front office staff is so nice and cool. They are always ready to help you with whatever you need. They also plan a lot of fun events for the apartment complex. It is clear that they go above and beyond for the residents. This is by far the best off campus housing.
