Fenway Triangle Trilogy Apartments: One Semester In

With second semester in full swing, The Hub decided to follow up on what off-campus life is like at the Fenway Triangle Trilogy Apartments. During the spring semester of 2015, Emmanuel entered into a housing agreement with Trilogy for 13 two-bedroom apartments for the 2015-2016 school year, along with keeping it’s housing agreement at CityView.

A typical Trilogy apartment leased through Emmanuel includes two twin bed shared bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and living room. Each apartment is furnished with dorm furniture, a couch, a kitchen table and chair set, and complete with a free in unit washer and dryer. Cable and Wi-Fi is supported by Emmanuel as well. Residents may also enjoy the fitness center and billiards room.

Morgan Brown ’16 is one of the two Community Assistants at Trilogy. As a community assistant, Brown acts as a liaison between Trilogy residents and EC ResLife. Brown has said  the bulk of work she has encountered so far this semester is submitting work orders and making sure the orders are taken care of as promptly as possible.

“The atmosphere here is a lot different than a dorm building. There’s a lot of families living here so it’s usually much quieter and laid back. Even though these apartments are through Emmanuel, there’s still a sense of independence, which is really nice,” says Brown.

This year can be seen as a trial run for EC and Trilogy, though Emmanuel hopes to acquire more apartments in Trilogy for the 2016-2017 school year.

Brown says most of the issues encountered so far have stemmed from paperwork that is required for all EC residents to fill out during move-ins.

“With all of the last minute unit additions over the summer, there was a lot of confusion and un-organization when it came to move in’s here. I think that’ll be an easy improvement for next year,” says Brown.

Brown does praise Trilogy for the convenience of having her own washer and dryer in her apartment, which she shares with three other girls.

“The location is also really convenient since it’s close to campus, and Target, and pretty much everything,” says Brown.

Senior Anndie Vigneau ’16 echos Brown’s sentiments.

“I love location and the Fenway area. Trilogy feels more homey than a dorm,” says Vigneau.

When asked if she felt living at Trilogy is getting her ready for post-grad life, Brown said she feels it’s helping her learn how to live on her own. “Like I still don’t know what a mortgage is, but I do know how to cook stir-fry, which is a start. I would say it’s a good transitional living situation,” says Brown.
