Lumen is a great place to make friends in Birmingham. (Jacob Blankenship / Bham Now)

As a college student in Birmingham, you learn to stand on your own two feet, meet new people, and connect with your community.

One way to do this is to live in a place that is not only close to campus, but also helps you socialize with other students and the city.

Enter Lumen Apartments: off-campus student housing for UAB students with FREE RENT FOR ONE YEAR.

1. The UAB campus is within walking distance

I don’t know about you, but a long commute to school would make it way too easy for me to skip class. Living close by is the best way to be on time and stay focused.

Lumen is only six blocks from the UAB campus. For students who don’t want to live in the dorm but still want to be within walking distance to their classes, this is the perfect location.

When I was in college, I thought everyone else already had a solid group of friends. That’s not usually the case. Many students are alone and looking for new friends.

The good news is that this is not true and many students are looking for new friends and roommates.

What I love about Lumen is the ability to match rooms. It’s a great and easy way to get together with a fellow student and potentially form a great friendship. They also offer weekly resident events so tenants can meet and get to know each other.

Here’s a look at a few things that are just steps from Lumen’s front door:

This popular park is not only beautiful, but also ideal for leisurely strolls or days in the park with friends.

The Red Cat Coffee House is right across the street and offers a great selection of food, pastries and drinks. The quiet atmosphere also makes it a good place to study.
