Can I pay with student loans and scholarships?
Yes! Monthly rent can be paid with Financial Aid. Upon housing contract signing, you will need to speak with the leasing office to let them know of your intent. Once you receive confirmation from the school of your pending Financial Aid, the leasing office will be able to guide you through the required paperwork.
Can I choose my roommate, bedroom, and/or apartment?
Yes! If you have a specific roommate, bedroom, and/or apartment in mind, communicate that with the leasing office so that they are able to address your request. Keep in mind that this is dependent upon availability and space at the time of your request. You are encouraged to reach out sooner than later to guarantee the fulfillment of any preferences.
If my roommate leaves, do I have to pay their rent?
No! All beds are leased on an individual basis. You are only responsible for your individual lease agreement.
What if I don’t have a roommate in mind?
No problem! While we do not offer roommate matching services, you will be asked a few questions of preference to place you in a well-suited unit of your same gender. We also have individually keyed bedroom doors in each apartment for privacy and security.
