My job/internship starts before May 10th, can I move in before that date?If you would like to move in before the 10th please indicate as such in your application email and we will attempt to accommodate you.

My job/internship only lasts until mid July- would I have to pay for the full summer’s worth of rent? We ask that tenants who miss a part of the summer session pay for most of the time they miss. This is because it’s very difficult to find people to move in to rooms for only 3-4 weeks at the end of summer. The minimum we rent out a room for is $1500 over summer if a tenant stays for less than two months.
