FAQ

  • Individual Leases

    What is an individual lease?

    An individual lease provides each resident with their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for only 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 & 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 each 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Can I print an application from the website?

    You can access the printable PDF version of the application by clicking the “APPLY ONLINE!” link at the top of each page then selecting "Apply by mail" at the top of the page.

  • Utilities

    What utilities are included in my rent?

    Water, sewer, trash, internet, cable and electricity (up to a monthly allowance) are included.

  • Roommate Matching & Requests

    Do you have a roommate matching service?

    Yes, you will be given a profile card when completing your lease contract that will inquire as to your study habits, social habits, and hobbies to help us match you with residents that have similar preferences in your floor plan.

    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.

  • On-Site Staffing

    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.
