Application Process

Can I fill out an application online?

What will I need to apply?
You will need to have your Net ID and the graduate school/program you have been admitted to in order to apply.

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. 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).

What are the lease dates?
The Ridge offers 11.5 month leases from August 1st through July 21st.

Lease Term and Rental Installments

Can I setup recurring payments?
Yes! Save time in the future and never miss a rental installment by setting up recurring payments. You just need a few minutes and your checking account or card info to setup payments. Click here to login to the Resident Portal and get started.

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.

How can I make my rent payment?
We accept credit cards, debit cards and ACH payments online through our Resident Portal. We are unable to accept cash.

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.

Renters Insurance

Are there insurance requirements for signing a lease at the community?
No. The community does not require residents to obtain insurance but it is HIGHLY recommended. Coverage for your personal belongings is not included as part of your License Agreement. Renters insurance can provide coverage for loss or damage to your personal belongings (including fire, theft, or natural causes).

You can obtain renters’ insurance coverage via American Campus Communities’ preferred insurance partner LeaseTrack.

Roommate Matching and Requests

Am I allowed to request a specific unit?
You can list your preferences on your 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.

Can I request specific roommates?
Yes! You can search for and match with specific roommates in the RoomSync app. Change your mind? No problem! You can modify your matches if your preferences change up until the matching period close date.

Do you have a roommate matching service?
Yes! Our roommate matching program is powered by RoomSync–a roommate matching app. You will have the opportunity to create a personal profile, search, filter, chat and match with other residents who will be living in the community. You decide what matters most when narrowing down your search. Want a roommate with the same major? You got it! Prefer to live with someone who goes to bed early? No problem! Looking for a roommate who enjoys college football? No sweat! You control your search and matching criteria to find the perfect roommate.
