FAQs

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).

Lease Term and Rental Installments

How can I make my rent 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 here for your convenience. 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 divided into 2 equal installments due August 1 and December 1. These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.

When are the installments due?
Installments are due on August 1st and December 1st .

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.

Renters Insurance

Is insurance coverage for my belongings included as part of my Lease Agreement?
Coverage for your personal belongings is not included as part of your Lease Agreement. Renters insurance can provide coverage for loss or damage to your personal belongings (including fire, theft, or natural causes). Renters insurance is not required but highly recommended.

Resident Programming

What type of programming can I expect?
We provide a premier Residence Life program, which offers a variety of educational, recreational and social activities.  Programs may include activities such as: Alcohol Awareness, Resume Building, Intramural Sports, community participation in campus-wide competitions and many more.

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.
