University Area Renewal FAQs
Is There A Deadline To Renew My Lease?
There is not a deadline to renew your lease, but we encourage early renewal to ensure your apartment will be available to you. If someone pays a deposit for your specific apartment or your unit type, you will be given 48 hours to get back to us with your renewal decision – this could happen as early as October or as late as July. If you have not committed to renewing your lease by the end of the 48 hour period, a new lease will be signed and your opportunity to renew will be lost.
When Will Uptown Begin Showing My Apartment?
Pre-Leasing begins mid-October for the upcoming school year. Apartments are shown on a rotating basis depending on availability. Every unit is considered available until either a renewal lease or a new lease has been signed. Once your signed renewal lease is received at the office, your apartment will be taken out of the showing rotation. Make sure you’ve opted in receive texts from us to be notified of showings by text message!
Showings are scheduled seven days a week during the following time frames:
- Monday – Thursday: 9:00am – 7:00pm
- Friday: 9:00am – 5:00pm
- Saturday: 10:00am – 4:00pm
- Sunday: 12:00pm – 4:00pm
How Do I Make Sure I Don’t Lose My Parking Space For Next Year?
Just like your apartment, parking spaces are available until they are renewed. You can renew your parking space when you renew your lease, but there is no guarantee that we will still have parking available if you wait too long! Your parking payment will be due on the start date of your renewal lease.
I Want To Renew My Lease With A Different Roommate. What Do I Need To Do?
All you need to do is submit a Lessee Addition and Release Request through our website. Your new roommate will be invited to submit a rental application and pay the application fee, once approved they will pay their portion of the security deposit. Finally, you can all sign a renewal lease, and your existing roommate can be released.
