  • Individual Leases

    What is an individual lease?

    An individual lease provides each resident with their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for his/her rental installments and applicable utility and parking charges. By signing an individual lease, you are only taking responsibility for your rental installments and lease terms and will not be held liable for any delinquent amounts owed by your roommate(s).

  • On-Site Staffing

    Is there on-site professional management and maintenance staff?

    We're always on duty. Our community is staffed 24/7 with an on-site professional staff. Our property's staff is experienced and skilled in addressing all of your needs. Our local general manager is supported by leasing, business, and maintenance personnel along with our student staff of community assistants.

    Is after hours staffing and maintenance available?

    Yes, after hours Community Assistants will live on site and after hours maintenance will be available in the case of a maintenance emergency.

  • Lease Term & Rental Installments

    What is an installment?

    The typical lease term is approximately 11.5 months of occupancy which coincides with the university's academic calendar. The resident is charged a total rent amount for the contracted occupancy period. The lease agreement will reflect the total rent amount typically divided into 12 equal installments due August 1 - July 1. These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.

    When are the installments due?

    Installments are due on the 1st of every month per the payment schedule outlined in the lease agreement.

    How can I make a payment?

    We accept checks, money orders and cashier’s checks in our office made payable to the community name. As an alternative payment option we also accept credit card, debit cards and ACH payments online at https://connect.studenthousing.com for your convenience. We are unable to accept cash.

    Do you send me a bill every month?

    No, bills are not sent to residents each month, but you may see payment reminders posted around the property.

  • Guarantor

    What is a guarantor?

    To mitigate the risk of delinquent or defaulting residents, we require applicants to provide someone to guarantee their housing contract.

    When is a guarantor required?

    All residents require a guarantor to complete the guaranty agreement.

    Can I be my own guarantor?

    A resident can act as their own guarantor if they can show documentation as outlined in the lease agreement that they have income greater than three times the rental installment.

    What paperwork is required with a guarantor?

    The guarantor will need to sign the guaranty agreement. If the resident is not of legal age to execute a contract, the guarantor will be required to sign both the lease and guaranty agreement.

  • Roommate Matching & Requests

    Can I live with my friends?

    You may request roommates by listing them on the on the Resident Profile Form, which is sent in your licensing packet. Whenever possible, a mutual roommate request will be honored. Requests must come from both students in writing and we suggest submitting your applications and deposits together. We only offer same-gender room assignments.

    What is Roommate matching and how does it work?

    Roommate matching is the process by which roommates are matched together using roommate profiles. You can utilize our roommate matching service to find one or more roommates, or you can bring all of your own roommates.

    Can I request specific roommates?

    Yes, you can list the roommates you have chosen on your profile card when completing your lease. It is important that all roommates list each other and that all requests are mutual.

    Am I allowed to request a specific unit?

    You can list your preferences on your profile card and housing application and we will do our best to place you in the unit that fits those requests. All requests are served on a first-come, first-served basis and are taken in order based on the date your lease was received.
