Occupancy standards are set by local ordinances and University policy and regulations.

Can I view an apartment if I am not currently in St. Louis?

Yes, as long as the apartment is vacant and available to show, we can schedule a Facetime or Skype tour, or show a local friend for you.

Can I apply without a student ID number?

You may apply before you receive your student ID number but you must provide either your student ID or University letter of acceptance prior to your move-in date.

How do I apply for the apartment I am interested in?

Applying for an apartment is easy! Once you decide on an apartment, call, email or visit the office. Applications are processed in the order of the date they are received. You should submit your application to reserve an apartment as early as possible. Once your application and holding fee have been submitted, the unit will no longer be marked available for others to rent on the site. Then, our leasing professionals will process the application and send you your lease packet for review and signature.

What is a Conventional Joint and Several Lease?

A  Conventional Joint and Several Lease agreement is when all residents over the age of 18 sign one lease. All residents are jointly and severally liable for all terms outlined in the lease agreement including the total rent due for the contract. Occupancy guidelines are to be followed.

What if I don’t have a roommate?

No problem! Through our partnership with WashU Apartment Referral Service, you have access to their roommate search service. You can also reach out to your department for resources in helping you find a roommate.

Is there an apartment waitlist?

No, all available apartments are posted online either for immediate selection, or for future dates. Apartments vary on availability.

Is the deposit refundable if I cancel?

You have 24 hours from the time you submit your holding fee to cancel your application and have 100% of your holding fee refunded. If you withdraw the application after 24-hours, a $100 retaining fee will be assessed for each day the apartment is reserved. If the apartment is held for the applicant for more than five days all monies deposited shall be forfeited.
