Most maintenance requests are free of charge. We strive to complete work orders within 24 hours of receiving notification from the tenant. Tenants can easily submit a maintenance request using the online resident portal or by calling the leasing office during regular office hours. We will also have on-call emergency line, where residents can call after-hours for maintenance emergencies.

A SIMPLE PROCESS

Our application and lease process is simple and tailored to today’s savvy student and parent. The lease process may be done in the office or entirely online. Starting with the application, each resident must pass a background check. After signing a lease, a guarantor (usually a parent) of each student will need to sign the Guaranty Agreement, which is then attached to the completed lease. Our leases are by-the-bed, which means that all residents are individually responsible for his or her own payment. With this type of lease, you are only responsible for your student's rent. You're not liable for the roommates' rent at all! Unlike a traditional lease or a joint lease, if your roommate transfers or graduates, you have nothing to worry about.

Your student won't have to worry about finding a roommate online or searching the entire campus, we'll do the work for you and all you have to do is simply fill out a questionnaire!
