Be part of the birth of a college town with the exclusive retail opportunities at one of the busiest intersections in CT.

University Commons is a mixed-use residential and retail development consisting of three individually branded buildings: The Atwood, Park View, and The Forest. All the residential apartments are designed specifically for student housing. The Atwood initially opened in July of 2017 and is fully leased to 120 students. Park View is scheduled to open in June of 2020 and is fully leased to an additional 120 students prior to opening. The Forest will have housing for 150 students.

University Commons is reshaping the Allingtown section of West Haven. With its location less than 400 feet from the University of New Haven, University Commons is ideally located at the edge of campus and situated between both the VA Medical Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital. The 45,000 sq. ft of retail space offers both restaurant and retail tenants the ability to establish their business in a college campus environment with a tremendous captive market as well as a dense residential population from the surrounding area.

Each apartment at University Commons features studio, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom options, with all the comforts of home including stainless steel appliances, full-time security-controlled access, secure & lighted parking and a community common room with Wi-Fi. Rental furniture is also available, and there are bike-racks located on-site. Ideally located across from the city green which will feature a steady schedule of community public events. With so many great features, University Commons will support an eclectic group of residents and boast unmatched convenience, making these units the best housing option for the University of New Haven’s 7,000 plus students.

Surrounding demographics are extremely strong with 15,000 medical professionals within 2.5 miles at the VA Hospital and Yale New Haven Hospital, a population of 135,000 within a 3-mile radius, and 6 University Dormitories within 1 mile. In addition, there is a new CVS adjacent to University Commons, and within just 2 miles is the Yale Bowl, Yale Baseball Stadium, and Westville Music Bowl (formerly the Connecticut Tennis Center Stadium) which will feature live music performances with a capacity for 5,000 people. Within close proximity you’ll find the prestigious Hopkins School, Notre Dame High School as well as the Oronoque Forest Condominiums and Fieldstone Village, both high end senior living developments.

Convenient free parking is also available for all customers of the retail tenants at University Commons.
