The first rent payment is due any time until March 1. You will need to pay your first rent to receive your apartment keys. In other words, the deposit secures your room, and the first rent brings you the keys.

If you are a student, they require proof of study instead of proof of work. This full process can be completed online.

What is proof of guarantor?

It is proof that you have a guarantor agreeing to secure or 'guarantee' tenancy agreement/contract. A guarantor can be an individual (parent, spouse, relative, etc.) who promises to pay a tenant’s debt in the case the payment has not been transferred for a reason.

Why can’t I select the dates I want?

You can only select beginning and end of the month as a move-in date. If you have a specific move-in date in mind, you may contact by mail in case they can accommodate your inquiry.

What if my classes are canceled due to Covid-19?

Please see their cancellation policy, with a special Covid-19 update. Proof will be required for cancellation requests based on Covid-19. Additional fees might apply depending on how much notice is provided.

Will I lose my furniture deposit if my classes are canceled due to Covid-19?

Do I pay my rent month to month, or weekly?

What if I want to change my room type?

Room type changes are subject to availability and will involve an extra cleaning fee pending approval.
