Is there AC? There is no central AC, but tenants are allowed to bring their own AC units over summer.


Do I get a key to my room? Yes, your privacy is important to us.

Are the rooms furnished? Because buying furniture for two and a half months isn’t practical, all rooms come with bed frames and mattresses. The frames and mattresses will be new for summer of 2020.

Can I live in a double if I don’t have a roommate? Yes. We will pair tenants who are looking for roommates with each other. Our policy is to only pair roommates of the same gender together.

What can I cook with? In order to encourage a clean kitchen, the house does not provide communal cookware.


What are the bathrooms like? The main bathroom on the second floor of the house has several sinks, toilets. There are two different communal shower banks for privacy. There is also an individual private half bath downstairs. For pictures of the bathrooms, check out photos

When do the bathrooms get cleaned? Bathrooms are cleaned once a week and restocked daily by our on-site manager.


Why is there an application fee? We want to provide a safe and secure environment, and the $35 application fee goes towards running a background check on all the tenants who stay with us over summer.

How can I make payments? Upon receiving your completed background check, and signing your lease, you will be able to pay via check or Zelle.

Is there a security deposit? Yes, there is a security deposit equivalent to one month's rent that is refunded at the end of summer minus damages. The deposit is due on the date you move in.
