Frequently Asked Questions

How does room selection work?

Rooms are assigned on a first come, first served basis depending on your room type. They cannot guarantee views, floor numbers, closeness to elevators, etc.; however, if you have any special requests, please let us know and They will do our best to accommodate. If you reserved your room directly with your school/company, they will handle all pairing and room allocation.

What is included with the room? Amenities? What does they provide and what do I need to bring?

The room rate includes all utilities (water sewer gas, electric, trash, high-speed wifi, , AC/heat), a fully furnished room (twin bed, desk, dresser or closet, desk with chair), and communal study and kitchen areas. 

What are the dates I can make a reservation / sign a lease?

Residents may book by semester, quarter, 3, 6, 9 and 12 month intervals.

What are the eligibility requirements of booking?

To be eligible to rent a room in the residencies, the applicant must be able to certify either (a) that they are currently enrolled as a student and are taking one or more courses, or (b) if the applicant is not taking classes during the semester, the applicant both (i) is registered to take classes in the following semester, and (ii) is working at an internship that provides beneficial learning.

What happens at the end of the lease term?

Properties is a rent-controlled community. After the initial lease term, the rental agreement will remain in effect on a month-to-month basis. To terminate the agreement, a thirty (30) day notice must be given by the lease holders and the apartment must be vacated. 

How long is the lease term?

Unless otherwise stated, our leases are for twelve (12) months.

How are they going to pay rent?

Everyone on the lease will be able to pay online via our resident portal. Upon move in, leaseholders will receive his or her login information and instructions on how to access the resident portal.

How long does the approval process take?

After submitting your application, which should take about five minutes, you will hear back from us within 2-4 business days during normal business hours.

What documents will you need from me?

If you are an employed US citizen, they will need a copy of your current government-issued ID, your signed letter of employment, thirty days (4 weeks) worth of recent pay stubs, and your two most recent bank statements. If you're an international student, well need your current government-issued ID or passport, Form I-20, and some qualifying documents from your Responsible Party.

Am I liable as a guarantor after my son or daughter leaves but their roommates stay behind?

Yes! The personal guaranty remains in effect until ALL residents vacate and the apartment is surrendered empty and free of everyone. This means that you could be held financially liable for persons that you did not intend to personally guaranty when you signed the guarantor agreement.

Will my daughter/son and I get a separate lease from the others in our group?

No, there is one lease for each home. All applicants will sign the same lease and have joint and several liability. they treat student leases the same as they do any lease.

What are the minimum Guarantor requirements that Parkmerced would typically accept?

If you have a FICO score, the minimum score is 630, and if employed, the minimum total annual income accepted is 3 times the monthly rent. Your income can also include liquid assets. Please contact your leasing agent for more details.

The person I am guaranteeing for does not have credit. Do you still need to screen them?

To be fair, firm, and consistent they run the same screening on everyone the age of 18+ who applies to live here. If you are going to be an occupant or guarantor of one of our homes, they will run a screening that may include credit and rental background.

I’m an international traveler, expat, or foreign student. Can I still be approved?

Yes, prospective renters with no US credit score are eligible for lease coverage.  If you are an international student, you'll most likely need a Responsible Party to apply. A Responsible Party is a well-qualified associated guarantor that makes 3 times the monthly rent in total annual income. This individual does not need to be in the US, and their income and liquid assets do not need to be in US dollars.

I am going to be a Guarantor for one of the applicants; will I have to pay the USD 43.50 fee as well?

Yes, they run a screening on every applicant, both guarantors and occupants. These are separate screenings for each person.

What should I bring to my new apartment?

While the furniture and appliances are included, below is a guide to help you with the personal belongings that you will need to provide: COMMON AREA : Electronics and corresponding cords/adapters, dcor, trash can, trash bags, pots and pans, plates, cups, eating/serving utensils, coffee maker.
