Prospective Resident FAQs
How do I apply?
It’s easy! Simply click here, select a floorplan and “Apply”
I am a student, do I need a co-signer?
Most students do apply with a co-signer but if you don’t have one, you may apply on your own. We will run a credit check, require proof of income, and will check your rental history (if applicable). Note: If applying with a cosigner, only the cosigner’s credit and income is checked, not yours.
How does my co-signer apply?
Begin your online application and on Step 4 (Additional Persons), enter your cosigner’s name and email address. An email will be sent to them asking them to complete their part of the application. Then, continue completing your application. We’ll get notified automatically once your cosigner has completed their part.
What if I am not a student?
No problem! You are welcome to fill out an online application. We will run a credit check, verify your income, and check your rental history.
When do I sign my lease?
Once your application is approved, we will email your lease to you and you can sign electronically.
How do I get placed with my chosen roommates?
The application asks for your roommate’s information. Once we have this info, the applications will be placed together.
What if I do not have a roommate?
Not to worry! We can help match you with a roommate if needed.
When can I move in?
Our available move-in dates occur from May through August. We will be in touch to confirm your exact move-in date.

What is included in my monthly rent?
Your rent includes cable, internet, and trash removal.
Electricity must be set up through Harrisonburg Electric Commission. JMU students can use UDAP (University Deposit Assistance Program) which allows electricity to be set up without a deposit. We handle the billing for water usage so you do not need to set this service up. Each month, we will email you a monthly water statement which can be paid with your rent.
