FAQs

Where am I on the Wait List? 

We are not able to provide exact numbers to students on the waiting list. We give priority to different groups of students and since we are adjusting the waitlist to reflect this priority, an exact position on the wait list is not something we can provide.

When will you contact me about an apartment?

We ask for a 30 day Intent to Vacate notice from our current residents.  We do not know much more than 30 days in advance what apartments we will have available to assign. Apartment assignments are generally made approximately 30 days in advance. Please review the estimated wait list times on this page.  

Will you have an apartment for me on my desired date of occupancy?

Apartment availability is not guaranteed. Please refer to the estimated wait times on this page.  Single students wanting an apartment in August may have a longer wait since housing available for single students is limited and many students want to move in just before Fall Semester begins.  

Student Apartments accepts applications and offers apartment assignments out year round as apartments become available.  We do not lease by the semester or year.
