What is an individual lease?

An individual lease is a per-bed lease. You sign a lease for a bed in the apartment and share common areas with roommates. This allows you to live with roommates without having to worry about whether they’re going to pay on time.

What is the underage leasing process?

If you are under the age of 19, the State of Alabama requires your parent / guardian to complete the lease in their name. Please read the instructions below explaining the process needed to complete your lease agreement.

Instructions For Parents & Legal Guardians

In order to submit an application for applicants under the age of 19, the applicant’s parent or legal guardian must complete the following:

  • Submit an application by clicking “APPLY NOW” in the top right-hand corner and complete the steps with your name and your information — on step 3, choose from the drop-down box “ I want to qualify on my own” and check the box that you do not wish to invite a guarantor.
  • Continue to enter your birthday and SSN information
  • Have the underage applicant complete the “Roommate Questionnaire” portion.
  • After submitting the application, select “Review & Sign.”
  • Sign and initial each page of the attached housing contract as applicable.
  • Please let our office know your students name so we can add them onto the account.

Please be aware that accommodations are limited and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis upon signing the housing contract — the application does not ensure a space is reserved. If you have questions regarding the leasing process, please feel free to contact our leasing office, and we will be more than happy to assist you.

What is the process to match roommates?

If you’re looking for a roommate, fill out our roommate-matching questionnaire online when you sign your lease. We will use that information to match you and your future roommate. If you already have a roommate selected, we can help sort out the details with that, too!

Do you have an on-site laundry facility?

Each apartment has a full-size washer and dryer.

Do you have a maintenance staff?

Yes, we have maintenance available during office hours, as well as 24-hour emergency maintenance service.

Do I have to be a student to live here?

No, you do not.

Is there a security deposit?

Yes, contact our office for specific pricing and income requirements.

How do I pay rent?

You’re welcome to pay by check or money order at the leasing office during business hours, or you can pay online!

When is rent due?
