Top 10 Metro Manila Universities near Vista Residences Condo Properties

The COVID-19 has resulted in schools to shut, or shift to online class all across the country. Education has changed dramatically with the rise of e-learning and the sudden shift away from the classroom has made some people wonder whether the adoption of online learning will continue to persist post-pandemic.

However, as the government recommends reopening of schools in the coming months, university students are already preparing to go back to their campuses.

Incoming freshmen are also now choosing the school to spend their college days in. Most students choose to study in big schools that are capable of accommodating a huge population. For them, studying in a big school implies that there is more room for opportunities and growth. This is also one of the reasons why most students living in provinces consider to study in Metro Manila where a number of big colleges and universities are located and are sure to meet their educational needs.

However, these big colleges and universities are often far away, with the distance further widened by the daily traffic problem in the metro.

The most common solution to this is by renting or staying in a dormitory. However, with various condo developers specifically catering to university students and young professionals as well as the existence of flexible payment terms, buying and investing in a condo unit, has now been the most considerable option.

Vista Residences, the condominium arm of the country’s largest homebuilder, Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. has ready for occupancy and pre-selling condominium projects in Manila and Quezon City that are strategically located near premium universities and developed business districts.

If you are planning to invest in any of Vista Residences condo properties, you will surely enjoy ultimate convenience as it is walkable from universities and that your investment will appreciate over time due to condo rental opportunities.
