Home to New Homes

With an enrollment of 10,000 students annually, Kutztown University is home for attendees from more than 20 states and nations. However, finding a home for these students can be challenging.  Finding a truly comfortable place to live can be a serious struggle.

Owner, Gregory Sarangoulis is seeking to change that with Advantage Point Student Apartments. Plans for three five-story buildings, are in the works and Sarangoulis hopes to start site work in spring 2014 with a 2015 fall opening. The complex will have 337 units with a potential 1,348 tenants in 1, 2, 3 or 4-person apartment layouts.
“There’s a need for new state-of-the-art apartments in Kutztown,” Sarangoulis explains. These new apartments will help the university with its enrollment plan and give students the housing amenities that are being offered at other top universities throughout the country.  
Advantage Point Student Apartments will go far beyond standard, providing students with a two-story, 17,000 sq. ft clubhouse with a resort-style swimming pool and hot tub to match. There will be several outdoor fire pits with grilling areas and the clubhouse will feature a complete fitness center with yoga and spin classes, free tanning, meeting rooms and study rooms. The clubhouse will also have a media center with a massive 180” screen TV that will serve as a host for movie nights and sporting events including College Gameday and NFL Sunday Ticket.
The apartments will come fully furnished with a 50-inch flat screen TV, granite countertops, dishwasher, washer and dryer in unit, high-speed internet including upgraded cable package and more. Plus, paying bills is made easy with one all-inclusive monthly payment that includes all of the services and amenities mentioned above. 
Local fund-raising events will also be a major part of the Advantage Point outlook involving its tenants. Sarangoulis, states that he is a big believer of the younger generator getting involved in local fundraising charity events. 
“We’re really trying to get the students to communicate and get involved with other students, to socialize,” Sarangoulis says. “We do lots of fundraising events, including blood drives, dinners for the homeless, sponsor 5K walks, Women in Crisis events and donations to the Red Cross to mention a few.  We like to get the students involved from that standpoint.”
Sarangoulis also owns complexes at Bloomsburg University, Lion’s Gate Apartments, and 525 Student Apartments in Reading, serving Alvernia, Albright, Penn State Berks Campus, as well as RACC students. 
When asked about what makes the Advantage Point Student Apartments stand out, Sarangoulis’ answer is simple, “location, location, location and amenities galore. It’s literally on campus, but off campus. That’s the Advantage Point.”
Sarangoulis notes that current interactions with the University are very positive, promising that the two will be great neighbors, even utilizing the same security operations. Sarangoulis feels that the addition of Advantage Point Student Apartments will help the college with its future enrollment growth and will give students a place to look forward to living after their freshman year. He also emphasizes that the apartments aim to give students the amenities they have become accustomed to and will help KU with student retention.
Advantage Point began another relationship, that with Haydenfilms Institute, when the HFI Agency worked on promotional videos for Lion’s Gate Apartments and 525 Student Apartments. Now, the two organizations are working together on other events, like the PSA Festival Showcase, proving that a community built upon organizations that cooperate and work together can produce great things.
“Hayden {Craddolph, HFI Founder and Executive Director} is an alumni of Kutztown University,” Sarangoulis says. “The University has acknowledged Hayden as an inspiration moving forward in the field of social media and film. I feel working together with this group is a positive decision moving forward.”
There have been a great number of inquiries by the local student population.  For more information and updates on Advantage Point Student Apartments, visit
