For Parents

We know you have a million things to worry about when your loved one is off at college, but their living environment shouldn't be one of them! Since 1993, American Campus has been the nation's leading provider of academically oriented student communities. In our unrelenting commitment to students, we give your student the college experience they want and the academic environment they need to succeed - not just in school, but also in life. Whether their academic pursuits are in-person or online this Fall, we are here for them.

We’ve teamed up with RB, the makers of Lysol, to create Be safe. Be smart. Do your part.™ – our community disinfection and resident responsibility program to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 


With on-site professional management and maintenance, and on-call staff available 24/7, we're always on duty to address your student's needs.


No roommate? No problem! Your student can simply complete our personal profile card and we'll match them with someone who expressed similar interests, hobbies and study habits.


You're only responsible for your student's rent — never someone else's! If a roommate transfers or graduates, you have no financial worries.


No moving truck needed! Nearly all ACC properties offer fully furnished units at no extra fee. And, our communities are technology enabled, helping your student stay connected to their coursework, friends and you.

  • 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

    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 credit cards, debit cards and ACH payments online through our Resident Portal. 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.

    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.

  • Guarantor

    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.

    When is a guarantor required?

    All residents require a guarantor to complete the guaranty agreement.

  • Application Process

    Can I fill out an application online?

    You can access the online application by clicking the “Apply Online” link at the top of every page.

  • Roommate Matching and Requests

    Can I request specific roommates?

    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. 

    Do you have a roommate matching service?

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
