Can I pay my bill with a credit card? Is there an extra charge?

You can view your balance, submit electronic checks, or pay with a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover from any computer. Simply select the "Resident Login" link at the top of this website. This will direct you to our resident rent pay portal. There is a small convenience charge for this service.

How are rooms assigned?

Residents who already have preferred roommates can confirm their roommate match requests while submitting their application. If they do not already have a roommate, residents will be matched up based on the roommate matching card that they fill out while applying. Residents will be able to communicate with each other during and after the selection process. In the event that potential roommates discover that they are no longer compatible, they can request a different roommate and we will do our best to accommodate any change request. To provide sufficient time and the greatest opportunity for residents to find the perfect roommate, they should apply and sign a lease as early as possible.

How are roommates matched?

If you already have a roommate in mind, you are able to request them on your application. Otherwise, you will be asked a series of roommate matching questions while filling out your application. You will be matched up based on these answers and preferences.
