  • Lease Term and 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 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 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 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.

  • 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 is a guarantor?

    To mitigate the risk of delinquent or defaulting residents, we require applicants to provide someone to guarantee their housing contract.

    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.

  • Roommate Matching and Requests

    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.

    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.

  • Pet Policy

    Does your community allow pets?

    Yes, we allow pets at this community.
