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! Our roommate matching program is powered by RoomSync–a roommate matching app. Your student 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'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.


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.

What is my next step after applying for housing?
Call our office to make your $650 Rental Prepayment to obtain a lease OR submit a Housing Deferment application to see if you qualify.


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.

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

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 a payment?
We accept credit cards, debit cards and ACH payments online through our Resident Portal. We are unable to accept cash.

What are the qualifications to live in Prairie View Housing?

  • First Year Experience - <  29 credit hours (University College)
  • Second Year Experience - 30 to 44 credit hours (University Village)
  • Junior, Seniors, and Grads - 45+ (University Square 2.8 GPA/University View II 2.8 GPA, University View I NO GPA)

What is an installment?
The typical lease term is approximately 9.5 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 installments due September 1 - January 1. These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.

What is Housing Deferment?
Housing Deferment is an application where you can upload your Award Letter for review to see if you have enough aid to qualify for approval. If approved, you will not be responsible for paying a $650 Rental Prepayment before obtaining a lease because it is understood that you have enough aid to cover your housing charge

When are the installments due?
Installments are due on the 1st of September and January per the payment schedule outlined in the lease agreement. 

Where can I go to find my lease?
If you were sent a lease agreement but cannot seem to find it, please make sure you are looking in the correct email address. This will be the email address that was provided on your housing application. If you still cannot find it, try checking your junk or spam folder. When these options have been exhausted, reach out to our leasing department for further assistance and they will be glad to send you a reminder for your lease.

Insurance Requirements

Are there insurance requirements for signing a lease at the community?
Renters insurance is not required but highly recommended. 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). 

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

Roommate Matching & 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
