Life at Summerfield Square


In the 2013-2014 Corvias Campus Living – Summerfield Square Resident Survey, residents rated their overall satisfaction as 6.54 out of a Likert scale of 1 to 7.

At Summerfield Square, we help accommodate your life inside  and outside the classroom. We offer desks in each bedroom and spacious community study spaces. You can always find pictures of organs and vessels on the boards in our Flex Room from study groups. When it’s time to wind down we offer a state-of-the-art fitness center and large flat screen TV in the clubhouse common room. Come on Saturday and watch the big game with us! We offer at least two resident events every month along with community service projects to help give back to Dothan. There are also numerous student-led activities that happen at Summerfield  Square, including book clubs, mommy-and-me play groups and karaoke.

Resident Testimonials

What I enjoy most about Summerfield is how the staff understands our time commitments as students. They are willing to work around our schedules for problems, and if there was ever a problem to happen in the apartment I can say with full conviction that Nathan and Brittney will be on top of it as soon as humanly possible. The staff is top notch and they have become good friends as they are always making sure I’m on top of my studies and that things are well in my life.

Summerfield Square caters to many of my needs as a medical student. The apartment is not only beautiful and spacious,  but it is also fully equipped with a washer/dryer and dishwasher, which is very convenient. The clubhouse offers many amenities, and the staff goes above and beyond to help and accommodate their tenants. Even so, the best thing about living at Summerfield Square is having the ability to walk to school. With our hectic schedule, not having to commute really saves time and frustration.

Christine Dascalu

Summerfield is extremely unique because they actively support and understand the unique needs of medical students. Their office staff is consistently working with students to provide events that work with students’ schedules, and their maintenance staff is quick to respond to any issues. The convenience of being close to school and friends, along with the privacy of a quiet and safe apartment, makes living at Summerfield an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
