Renewal Frequently Asked Questions
You've settled into your new "home away from home", and it's time to start thinking about your plans for next year. We enjoy having you and hope that you choose to renew your lease and stay with us! We have put together answers for some common questions to help you with the process. If you need further clarification, please contact us at the office and we will be happy to help!
- It seems early to renew, I moved in not too long ago.
- Renewing now will provide the most benefit to you. By signing early, you will secure your space for next year and take advantage of the best pricing available.
- What information do I need to put on my application for renewal?
You can submit the application for your requested floor plan, and select any date. We will coordinate the dates, prices and room availability based on your Renewal Intent Form that is due as well. You will need to complete the online application and submit the $25 payment. When you do your online application, you don't need to worry about the dates of your license. We'll electronically adjust them to match with your license, and send you a digital license to sign - it's that simple!
- Do I need to submit a new application and pay the fee for renewal?
- Yes. All residents that are renewing are required to pay the $25 application fee. But as a returning resident, you do not have to pay another $200 Community Fee! Note that a Renewal Intent Form without payment is an incomplete application and will not be considered for renewal until payment is in. If that applicant is interested in transferring, they will not be added to the wait list until both payment and the Renewal Intent Form are submitted.
- Can I renew for less than a year?
- Unfortunately, short-term renewals are not available. We only offer full term renewals (1 full year). In order to receive a license through December, you'll need to submit your application, Renewal Intent Form and a letter from your school or department verifying that you are enrolled in the program or will be continuing a work assignment. Please note, we can only accept a limited number of these extensions. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- If I don't want to renew, do I need to notify the office?
- Starting mid-February, all apartments become available to all applicants. Once that date hits, if you have not notified us of your intent to renew or have not completed the process, incoming residents have the right to reserve your space. If you change your mind after the February deadline, you're welcome to email us about your plans so we can try to work through renewal and licensing with you, but we can't guarantee anything.
- If I renew, do I have to move out and then move back in?
- When you renew and choose to stay in your current spot no moving is required!
- If I renew AND I have a guarantor, will my guarantor have to sign again?
- No. Your guarantor doesn't have to do anything extra!
