FSU has always been a popular school for a number of reasons including great weather, football team and lets not forget the various academic reasons. FSU received more than 48,000 applications from Freshman alone and they expect that number to surpass 50,000 before Fall classes start. These high numbers mean that there needs to be plenty of housing and that's where Onyx comes in.
Onyx is a luxury property that was built in 2015. Location is everything when it comes to your first year in college and Onyx is only a 7-8-minute walk to campus. Sitting on the corner of Macomb Street and College Ave it is downtown with a short walk to the Westcott fountain, local restaurants and bars, as well as right at the end of Sorority row. It is hands-down the best located property in Tallahassee! There is no comparison when you look at a dorm vs Onyx. Onyx offers students their own room, bathroom, a large kitchen, flat screen TVs, and amenities that would make their parents jealous. Onyx offers its residents a rooftop pool with a Jumbotron, a giant gym, game room, movie theater, a study lounge, and the list goes on and on. There is comparison in this market that once students see this property that they will fall in love.
Downtown Tallahassee offers a ton of things to do. There are amazing restaurants, bars, breweries as well as events all year long. Our favorite is Downtown Getdown because it revolves around FSU football. It brings the town together every Friday during the Fall with a big concert, food trucks, and other live events. This coming Fall will be the best one yet! This makes it a prime reason why we encourage people to live at Onyx. It allows you to be close to campus as well as close to everything Tallahassee has to offer.
