The service fee of $200 (one-time fee charged after move-in) is due along with signed lease agreement.

How are roommates matched?

We match rooms based off of preferences that are put on the application. After you complete the leasing process you will be emailed 1 to 2 weeks before move-in with your room number and roommate information. If you already have a roommate in mind, you can put their name directly on the application and you can be matched that way as well.
