Q: What does the term "lease by the bed" mean? And how is this better for my child?
A: Individual leasing provides the opportunity for our residents to live in an apartment environment with roommates without the stress of renting out the whole apartment. Individual leasing allows us to split the rent four ways, making each resident responsible for only their portion of the rent.
Q: What does the monthly rental rate include?
A: The rent includes the rental amount for the bedroom and
shared occupancy of the common areas, sewer, water, cable, and
internet. The rent also includes an electrical allowance for the
apartment (allowance varies by unit size). Water usage does not have a cap!
Q: What forms am I required to complete?
A: If you are the person that will be the guarantee on the lease then you will be required to fill out the Guarantor Application. This form will be subject to credit approval. There is a link on this website for you to access a printable version of this form. Proof of income for two consecutive months will need to be provided in order to process your application.
Q: What forms of payment does your community accept?
A: Payments are accepted in the office in the form of a
personal check, money order, or cashier’s check. Once rent is late on
the 5th of the month, a late fee will be applied (5% of total balance). Only certified
funds will be accepted in the office once rent is late. Online payment
options are available as well. Rent can be paid online at our Resident Portal.
Rent can be paid online with a bank draft when rent is on-time. Once rent is late the same late fees will be applied along with the option to pay with a credit card. Please keep in mind that credit cards are only accepted online when rent is late.
Q: Why do I pay a full months rent if my child moves in mid-August?
A: Like most student communities, we offer term leases. Our lease term for any new lease begins on move-in and ends July 31st. That lease term is worth one lump sum and then that lump sum is divided up into installments. We divide the total cost for the term into 12 equal installments which are to be paid on the 1st of every month. Therefore the first installment will be paid on the first of August in the form of cashierʼs check, or money order. Every other installment is due on the first of every month and can be paid using the payment methods stated above.
