Pre-Lease Program

Now Pre-Leasing for FALL 2024

Move In Specials Going On Right Now, Inquire Within

Hurry due to the Limited Number of Vacancies

Pre-Leasing is a way to secure an apartment that is over a two week to several months in advance time frame of moving in to your choice of apartments. This is an especially great program for students who leave for the summer and need a place when they return for school in the fall. Here is how our Pre-Leasing Program works:

  • The first step is to find an apartment style to your liking.
  • Then you will need to file an application. (link to apply online)
  • In order for us to reserve an apartment for you, we will need you to pay the deposit for the apartment. *Please refer to Deposits for deposit amounts*.
  • Deposits will guarantee you a comparable apartment you desire, just not a specific one. Please keep in mind that rental prices may vary due to the relevant condition of appliances, carpet, etc.
  • Once we have processed your application, a Leasing Agent will be in contact with you to inform you of the required term, if any.
  • When you have agreed to the terms, we will secure an apartment comparable to your specifications so that it will be available for you at the requested date. Since we are reserving an apartment, should you change your mind for any reason; the deposit will not be refunded.
  • Finally, when it is two weeks before your projected move in date, we will assign you to a specific apartment. Then, within that two week period we ask that you set up an appointment so that all Lease documents can be signed by all parties.
