Summertime Is Here!
Planning on attending school at OSU Mansfield next year? Then stop in to renew your lease with us, and you’ll be entered to win FREE gas for a year — plus our grand prize of FREE rent for a full semester! We’ll be announcing the winner of the gas prize on the last Thursday of June, but we’ll also be giving away various smaller prizes leading up to the big reveal, so don’t miss your chance to score big — the earlier you sign, the more chances you have to win! Already renewed? Then you’re already entered! Keep an eye out for drawings each week.
And make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates on what we have going on!
Need something fixed? We can’t fix it if we don’t know it is broken! You can submit a service request in one of two ways: Call the office during regular office hours, or submit online through your resident portal at buckeyevillagemansfield.com/residents. Please keep in mind that our maintenance team has limited hours on weekends, so unless it’s an emergency, don’t be alarmed if your request isn’t handled until Monday.
Reminders & Updates
Rent is due on the 1st of each month! Luckily you have until the 3rd to pay your rent before late fees begin accruing on the 4th at 8 a.m. Payments can be dropped in the rent dropbox in front of the GM’s office after hours, as well. If you have any questions regarding the payment portal or about your account, please call or stop by the office and see Meredith or Melissa.
Have you left for the summer but are keeping your apartment? Be sure to turn your air conditioning to at least 75 degrees to keep the air moving in the apartment but not running constantly. This keeps your electric usage down. And if you are still here for the summer, be sure to run your air conditioning, as well.
Locked out of your apartment or have a maintenance emergency? Remember: There is always a Community Assistant on call! Just call (419) 565-6499, and you’ll be connected with the Community Assistant who’ll be able to assist you. (Reminder: Lockouts during office hours are $25, and $50 after office hours.)

- Visit a farmers market
- Check out a local sporting event
- Visit your Chamber of Commerce website to find out about local attractions

We’ll also be planning events and activities for you throughout the summer, and if you need ideas for other fun things to do in the area, please let us know. We have information on area resources and a local calendar of events on hand to give you plenty of options. Have a memorable and fun summer!
