What is Reflection?

It’s a top-quality Atlanta, Georgia apartment community designed especially with Georgia State University and Herzing University students in mind. Reflection features a variety of spacious, furnished apartments plus a full set of community features such as a rooftop pool and recreation deck, fitness center, individual and group study rooms, lounge spaces, and ground-floor retail. All just steps from campus.

Is Reflection part of Georgia State University?

No. Reflection is a privately owned and professionally managed community. Click here for more information about the management and ownership.

Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?

You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.

What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Reflection has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rate?

Each resident at Reflection pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • Wi-Fi Internet
  • In-unit laundry
  • Community amenities (pool, fitness center, gaming, etc.)

What size are the apartments?

The spacious accommodations at Reflection range from 1 through 4-bedroom apartments, with single occupancy bedrooms and a private bathroom for each bedroom.

Are the apartments furnished?

Yes, all apartments at Reflection include a furniture package with a full-size bed, mattress, nightstand, dresser, desk, and chair in each bedroom. In 1 through 4-bedroom apartments, the living area includes a sofa, end table, coffee table and TV, as well as a movable bar and barstools. Studio apartments have a sofa, coffee table, TV and side chair in the living area. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model apartment.

When do the contracts start and end?

The standard term is August 15, 2024 to July 31, 2025, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Limited alternate dates are available; please inquire with our staff. Click here for a sample agreement.

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?

Within 7 days after a Housing Agreement is signed, each resident is required to do one of two things: provide a qualifying guarantor (often a parent), or pre-pay the final 2 installments.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Reflection offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at Reflection?

Your living costs at Reflection can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at Reflection. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is Reflection open to non-students?

Reflection is designed and offered for students at Georgia State University, Herzing University and other local colleges. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Therefore, applications are accepted only from students at one of these local colleges or universities. Reflection is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes student residents/families with children. There is no extra cost for minor children in the care of adult residents, other than regular charges for each bedroom space selected by the resident. A minor occupying a bedroom space rented by a parent, guardian or person with legal custody is not considered a breach of the Housing Agreement or a violation of the rules. In order to match student roommates in shared apartments, we will request roommate consent for any non-student occupants.

What kind of safety and security are provided?

Reflection has 24-hour security guards, a front desk attendant, secure building entry and a monitored fire-sprinkler system, along with electronic locks plus individually locking bedroom doors. Management staff are also on-site and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?

Reflection is currently pet-friendly in select apartments with management approval, with restrictions on animals and breeds. The community will transition to a no-pets community in Fall 2025, except for renewing residents with previously approved pets. Reflection is smoke-free in all indoor and adjacent spaces. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.

Can I park my vehicle at Reflection?

Reflection offers limited garage parking, as well as reserved off-site spaces, for an additional charge.

What other transportation options will I have?

Reflection is just steps from the Georgia State University campus and from Herzing University. The MARTA Peachtree Center station (Red and Gold lines) is just two and a half blocks away. The Atlanta Streetcar stops just two blocks from Reflection, and there are also three bus stops within one block from the front door, serving over 20 bus routes all over the city.

Can I see a model apartment?

Yes. Please request an appointment for a personal tour, or just stop by to see us and we’ll be happy to show you the community.
