Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester, you’re not responsible for their payment.

Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the spring figuring out the best match for you based on that information.
Rent is always due the 1st of the month. You can pay up front (due June 1), in semester installments (due June 1, August 1, and January 1), or in twelve installments (due June 1 and on the first of the month for the next 11 consecutive months).
