Hyong Lee


Hyong is our housekeeper and is responsible for making sure your complex is kept clean. She will also be the one cleaning up after you leave, so don't make her work more than she already does and take good care of your apartments. Hyong can be reached by emailing

Area Coordinators

Each apartment complex has an Area Coordinator who is responsible for the well-being of each community.  There is one for Mountain View, one for Hallmark, one for Birch Street, and one for Faculty Court & University Studios.  These people are there to help you when you lock yourself out of your apartment, have an emergency, get sick and have no one to help, or have any other “minor” catastrophes. They also help us make sure that others are abiding by housing policies and that the community is safe.
