No advantage of that bike over a more conventional bike. If those urethane tires were worth anything, they'd already be widely available.
I think its clear that the point is weather resistance and low, or no maintenance. College kids' bikes sit outside, uncovered in all weather, rusting...and they do not get maintained. Conventional bikes are certainly not meant for that.
As for the tires, they are probably not as appropriate for your type of cycling at speeds higher than campus type riding.
The downside to me for college kid appeal: Dorky looking, heavy, and pricey.
I hope they sell/lease, because that was probably a very good and fun mechanical engineering/business cooperative project.
