Questions & Answers about University Corner Townhouses


What is leasing "by the bedroom"? 

Each housemate in a townhouse is only responsible for the rent on his/her master bedroom/bathroom suite. So, if one person moves out, the remaining housemates are not responsible for the departing housemate's rent.


How much is the Security Deposit?

University Corner does not collect a security deposit. We do charge a one-time only, non-refundable, move-in fee. This move-in fee covers costs associated with preparing the room for your move-in. 


Can I use my student award refund to pay my rent?

If you will be relying ONLY on your student refund to pay your rent please keep in mind you still must pay your move-in fee and 1st month rent before you move in. You must also pay your rent on the 1st of every month.

DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE if you pay 6 months rent or 12 month rent in advance.


What is included in my rent? 

The rent includes your master bedroom/bathroom suite and the use of your townhouse common areas. This  includes the living room, dining area, outdoor patio and kitchen. Your rent also includes wireless Internet, parking and a monthly utilities credit of $200 per townhouse.  (Certain restrictions apply, Internet access is subject to provider availability; cable tv is not included.)

What is a "pro-rated" first month's rent?

With a pro-rated first month's rent, you are only billed for the number of days you actually lived in the rental property. This means that your first month's rent is less than a full month's rent, based on the date you moved in.


What if I need to break my lease or don't return for the spring or summer semesters?

University Corner does not offer any type of lease cancelation or buy-out. Lease are typically for twelve months; however, with written permission, we will allow a replacement resident for the remainder of your lease term. It is your responsibility to find a replacement resident who MUST complete a lease application AND meets our leasing standards. 


What happens if I don't like my housemates? 

Should there be differences that simply cannot be worked out, residents may be able to transfer rooms, depending on availability (a room change fee may apply and the person moving will be required to pay the rental rate for the new master bedroom/bathroom suite).


Do you allow pets? 

No pets of any kind are allowed at any time.


What type of security is offered? 

Ensuring your safety is a cooperative effort. Each townhouse has a security system. We also provide locking devices on all doors and windows, each bedroom door has its own individual lock. However, you must take an active role in securing your home, property, and most importantly yourself, at all times.


Is there insurance in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease cover my belongings? 

Residents or guest's personal property and vehicles are not insured under the lease agreement. We strongly recommend that residents purchase insurance against loss or damage. Renter's insurance can be secured online through our resident portal.
