I'm a member of a sorority or fraternity. Can we all sign up and get our townhomes in the same building? Are there rooms where we can have meetings?

Yes. That is very possible. It would be best if you and your friends all came to the office together to select where you would like to live. If necessary, we can come to your meeting and get you signed up together. However, since time is limited, it would be best for you to stop by the office. To ensure that you are living as close together as possible, this should be done as soon as possible. There are facilities at the community building where you may hold your meetings. You would need to make advance arrangements with the on-site management to ensure availability of facilities.

What utilities do I pay in addition to my monthly rent?

Tenants will pay for their electric, gas, and water & sewer. This does not include any specials or offers that may be available at the time of signing.

What if I can't find other roommates?

No problem. If you are ready to sign a lease with us and you do not have roommates to live with, we will put you in touch with other individuals who are looking for roommates. Also, consider using our online roommate finder.

Are there any other fees or expenses?

 Each person renting at Meadows Crossing will also need to pay a $75 application fee and a $220 community fee.

Can I live with the people I choose, or will Meadows Crossing assign my roommates? Do we have to sign up at the same time?

It is preferred that you determine who your roommates will be. If you have not selected any roommates, we will help find roommates for you. Also, consider using our online roommate finder.

Is there a security deposit?

Yes. The security deposit is $350.00 per person.

What if I leave school early? What happens to my townhome?

In the event you leave school early for any reason, you and your guarantor will be held responsible for the remainder of the term of the lease or until your lease responsibility is assigned to someone else.
