Move In/Move Out

My job/internship starts before May 13th, can I move in before that date?If you would like to move in before the 13th please indicate as such in your application email and we will attempt to accommodate you.

My job/internship only lasts until the end of 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 some of the time they miss. For example, if you rented a room for only the first two months of our summer period, we ask that you pay 2.5 months of rent. 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.
