We hope you’ll use this guide to make the transition to your new home go smoothly so you may enjoy every aspect of your stay! Here, you will find some general information about move-in day and your new home. You may also receive additional documents & special directions at check in.
Unfortunately, crime is everywhere and no one can ensure your personal safety. For this reason, you, your roommates and visitors should always remain as aware as possible. Always keep in mind the following safety reminders:
rent is due on the 1st of each month
Late fees will be applied as per your lease contract. Remember, you will want to stay in good standing with your account balance because your credit rating and your guarantor’s credit rating will be in jeopardy if you do not. In addition, your school records could be jeopardized, too. It is always wise to come and talk with a professional sta member before you have a problem. Remember, we want you to succeed and we are here to help you!
We recommend paying in advance or by the semester, and this may be required at your Village.
complete a roommate agreement
You will find a Roommate Agreement form available to you online. Take the time to sit down with your new roommates and complete it. It provides an excellent opportunity for each of you to talk about your preferences and come to some agreements. If you ever encounter roommate problems, try to talk them out with that particular person. If you need further assistance, contact your RA and he or she will help with roommate intervention.
If you have an emergency after business hours (ex: water ooding your apartment), please call the Resident Assistant on duty (phone numbers available at your property). Explain the nature of the emergency to the RA on duty, and take steps to solve issues with them.
Pay close attention to all of the upcoming events your RAs have planned for you. Activities are designed with you in mind!
