Individual Leases

What is an individual lease?

An individual lease provides each resident with their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for only his/her rental installments and applicable utility and parking charges. By signing an individual lease, you are only taking responsibility for your rental installments and lease terms and will not be held liable for any delinquent amounts owed by your roommate(s).

Lease Term & Rental Installments

What is an installment?

The typical lease term is approximately 9.5 months of occupancy which coincides with the university’s academic calendar. The resident is charged a total rent amount for the contracted occupancy period. The lease agreement will reflect the total rent amount typically divided into 10 equal installments due August 1 - May 1.  These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated. 

When are the installments due?

Installments are due on the 1st of each month per the payment schedule outlined in the lease agreement.
