Frequently Asked Questions

General Leasing Questions

Am I required to have a meal plan?
All of our apartments have a full kitchen including stainless steel stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, and refrigerator. The university offers several different meal plans if you will be on campus all day. Check them out at
Can I pay my bill with a credit card? Is there an extra charge?
Absolutely! You can check your balance; pay your rent via our online system with VISA, MasterCard or Discover Card. You can also issue an e-check and submit a maintenance request on line! There is a convenience fee for using this service.
Can I request an apartment or roommate?
Yes, you may pick roommates and apartments. If you need a roommate, we offer a Roommate Matching program.
Can I use my financial aid to pay for my rent?
Yes, you may use financial aid to pay rent. Please note that financial aid usually is disbursed after the first payment is due so you may need to make a payment and then reimburse yourself when you receive your aid.
Do I need a guarantor?
No. If you do not have a guarantor, we will accept a security deposit equivalent to three (3) installments in lieu of a guarantor. This is a security deposit and the amount does not go towards any future rent payment.
How are rooms assigned?
Residents who already have preferred roommates can confirm their roommate match requests using RoomSync, our roommate matching platform. If they do not already have a roommate, residents will search for and choose their own roommate using RoomSync. Residents will be able to communicate with each other during and after the selection process. In the event that potential roommates discover that they are no longer compatible, they can request a different roommate and we will do our best to accommodate any change request. To provide sufficient time and the greatest opportunity for residents to find the perfect roommate, they should apply and sign a lease as early as possible.
How close to campus are you located?
Hornet Commons is on the south side of campus. We are a short walk to the stadium and the Well.
What types of leases are available?
We provide a 9 installment and a 12 installment lease option for our residents.
What utilities are included in my rent?
All utilities are included in your rent.
