Families enjoy a community feel in Storke Apartments. One to three story buildings are built around large lawn spaces and courtyards, creating a village effect. There are picnic tables and BBQs throughout the complex, and residents often socialize in shared spaces. Resident Assistants plan activities throughout the year and are available for after-hours assistance.
