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.


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 owned 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 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

    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.

  • Application Process

    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.

  • 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 application was received.

  • Pet Policy

    Does your community allow pets?

    Yes, we do allow dogs and cats. Restrictions apply.

    Do I have to pay a pet deposit or additional pet fees?

    Yes, there is a $150 pet deposit, $150 non-refundable pet fee, and a monthly pet rent of $20 per month.

    What pet restrictions apply?

    We allow dogs and cats under 35lbs at Villas on Sycamore. No aggressive breeds are allowed which includes but is not limited to Pit Bulls, Chows, etc. All pets must be current on vaccination and rabies shots at all times. No more than 1 pet per unit and all pets must be approved in writing by the Landlord and all roommates of the unit. Each resident in the unit must agree to living with a pet. Residents with pets will not be roommate matched and must select their own roommates to fill their entire unit.
