University Village Uses Communiqué

Communiqué is providing a state-of-the-art communication service to University Village, a student living community located in Columbus, OH. University Village’s property management team can send texts, emails and push notifications directly to a resident’s smartphone via the University Village App, a mobile application developed and supported by Communiqué.

“The decision to adopt the App came from the desire to provide a modernized outlet of communication for residents to be involved in property wide social events, paying rent faster, putting in maintenance work order requests and communicating with the office faster,” says Shannon Lasko, Leasing & Marketing Manager at University Village. “It’s important to stay with the ‘times’ when you’re a business and this was a good way to do so since people are always on their cell phones.”


Homestead U, the management team behind University Village, chose Communiqué to provide an improved, streamlined communication service to its nationwide portfolio of apartment communities. Through the University Village App or the Communiqué desktop interface, University Village staff members can send important messages to residents via texts, emails or push notifications. This three-pronged approach to communication ensures each resident stays updated and informed with their community’s news and events.



The University Village App, available on both iOS and Android devices, is one of several branded mobile Apps Communiqué has developed for property management companies nationwide. The smartphone App features a custom-designed interface complete with University Village’s photo and brand. Residents can view community messages, events and news, as well as pay rent or request maintenance orders directly from their mobile devices. The App is maintained and supported by the Communiqué team.



Marty Hollingsworth, CEO of Communiqué, said he is happy to provide state-of-the-art communication services to the staff and students of University Village. “Homestead U manages dozens of student housing communities,” Hollingsworth said, “We are excited to provide our App and its communication services portfolio-wide to Homestead U.”
