    • No more than two occupants may occupy each bedroom.
    • An infant who is under two years of age at the time of submission of the Rental Application or any lease renewal will not be considered an occupant. Any child two years of age or older will be considered an occupant for determining the occupancy limit. If an infant less than two years of age at the time of the Rental Application or lease renewal reaches two years of age during the lease term, and at such time causes the residents to exceed the occupancy limit described above, then the residents will be required to transfer to another available apartment with an allowable number of bedrooms at the end of the lease term.
    • Each of our properties is subject to varying zoning requirements that limit occupancy to unrelated persons. Typically, these limitations are “no more than three” or “no more than four” unrelated persons, regardless of the number of bedrooms. Your Leasing Agent will inform you of any zoning restriction that is more restrictive than two persons per bedroom.

*Please note that some properties we manage do not accept undergraduate students, please confirm with the Leasing Department if you are not sure.


**In order for a unit to be placed on "hold" for 48 hours at the time of application submission, we need a reservation deposit, in addition to all items listed above. You then have 48 hours to sign a lease agreement once we notify you of your application approval. If your application is approved, but you fail to sign a lease agreement within 48 hours, we will retain your $250 deposit. If your application is denied, we will refund your deposit in full. Your reservation deposit converts to a security deposit on the day your lease is signed.**
