What is Tiger Estates?

Tiger Estates is a 72 private bedroom gated community looking to attract academically oriented students starting in the Fall of 2019. The entire community will consist of four 4-bedroom homes and fourteen 4-bedroom townhomes. The four bedroom homes will be on Spottswood Avenue while the remaining units will be located behind the street-facing properties.

Where is Tiger Estates located?

The property is located at 3875 Spottswood Avenue in Memphis, TN 38111. The property is across the street from the University of Memphis Alumni Association.

How much does it cost?

The base rate for a large room and private bathroom is $795 to $850 per month – internet and up to $50 of utility costs are included in the price of the rent. A $50 good student discount is available if the student was able to maintain a GPA > 3.2 during the previous semester of schooling (this does not include summer school). The security deposit will be $300. If you own a car, there will be an additional fee of $20 or $30 per month depending on your assigned parking spot location.

When will Tiger Estates be available to live in?

The first 16 units will be available by August 2019. The final 58 units are scheduled to be completed by October 2019. We endeavor to complete the entire community before school starts in August.

Will there be parking?

Please refer to the Rooms and Rates section for additional information.

Do I need to own a car to get to campus?

No. With the new addition of the pedestrian bridge (which is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2019) students can access the Southern or Northern part of the Memphis campus with a 5 – 20 minute walk.

When can I reserve a place to live?

We are currently accepting applications for the first four single family homes being built on site. If you would like to be put on a waiting list for the townhomes and be notified when leasing has officially begun, please fill out the “Contact Us” form included on the “Contact” page. All are welcome to apply.

If I do wish to live here, do I need to have three other housemates, or can I apply by myself?

You can apply by yourself or you can apply with 1 to 3 of your friends. If you do apply by yourself, you will be matched with other housemates based on a housemate matching service we use to align lifestyle preferences and values so that people can be matched with a like-minded community of housemates.

Living with housemates can be challenging, what is being done to provide a happy and healthy housemate environment?

With everything in life, there can be pros and cons to living with others. We have designed these units with some of these challenges in mind. For instance, all homes will be installed with a lockable cabinetry system in the kitchen so housemates can have their own private food storage area. Each room will have its own thermostat and corresponding temperature control. The bedrooms are extra large/spacious so that each student can have a private sanctuary of their own. Each tenant will have their own master bathroom. We place tenants that we believe will be a good match for one another based on lifestyle preferences and values. While these items won’t eliminate all challenges, they should help to mitigate them.

How do I apply?

To apply, please fill out the “Contact Us” section on this landing page. Our team of property management agents will be in touch with you as to when applications can be completed and submitted for review.

Are pets allowed?

Unfortunately no, pets are not allowed at this time.

Can I bring my own furniture?

While each home does come pre-furnished, there may be some space to add your own furniture to the living environment. You are allowed to add your own furniture, but please know that any damage caused by moving furniture will be taken out of the security deposit.
