Do we need Renter’s insurance?

Our company requires that all residents have $100k liability coverage. For your convenience, we offer a plan to fulfill this requirement. The cost for this plan is $15 per person per month (through 2024).  You may waive this coverage if you already have liability insurance through another provider however, you must submit a copy of your policy for review so we can ensure it meets our property requirements.  Opting out of plan coverage and submission of an alternative policy must be done within our portal https://portal.confirminsurance.com/s/.
 
We also offer Personal Contents Coverage (PCON) for $5 per person per month (through 2024).  Though this is not mandatory, if you would like to waive this coverage you must opt out of the plan within our portal https://hra.confirminsurance.com/ppp-opt-out

What is an RV Index?

The RV Index is a risk score based on several factors. It is an innovative move in qualifying criteria used to screen and qualify applicants and guarantors.  By using this inclusive index, as opposed to our prior practice, we take a step toward future industry standards of fair practice. Depending on your property, an RV index of 40 or 50 will need to be achieved. Instead of just credit score and income, the index looks at several factors such as:
 
1. Payment history on all trade lines
2. Ratio of rent to income
3. Ratio of debt to income
4. Collections
5. Ratio of positive to negative credit lines

What is an individual lease?

​An individual lease provides each resident with their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for only his/her rental installments and applicable utility and parking charges. By signing an individual lease, you are only taking responsibility for your rental installments and lease terms and will not be held liable for any delinquent amounts owed by your roommate(s).

 

Lease Term and Rental Installments - What is an Installment?

​The typical lease term is approximately 11.5 months of occupancy which coincides with the university’s academic calendar. The resident is charged a total rent amount for the contracted occupancy period. The lease agreement will reflect the total rent amount typically divided into 12 equal installments due August 1 - July 1.  These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.        
 

What if I need roommates?

​We offer a roommate matching service. Every resident completes a detailed roommate profile questionnaire prior to moving in, which Venue at North Campus uses to match compatible residents based on their responses, including sleep habits, pets, lifestyle, schedule, etc.                            
 

What is the pet policy?

Yes, we allow pets. There is a $350 pet fee (non-refundable) upon lease signing and $50 per month charge. Please contact the office for more details.​
