In our effort to create a more enjoyable living environment for the student renter, we now require all residents to carry an active renter's insurance or tenant liability policy during their lease term. Requiring basic liability coverage has become a common practice in apartment living to provide peace of mind and protection from the unforeseen events that sometimes occur. Our required tenant liability coverage works to protect the resident from liability exposure created while your student is away from home, including but not limited to negligent damage to the apartment unit, negligent damage to another resident's property or even injuries to guests while visiting. Or if you choose to enroll in a more robust renter's insurance policy, you may be able to protect belongings such as text books, phones, electronics and other valuables in the event of theft or destruction. As long as your chosen policy meets the minimum coverage outlined in your lease agreement, feel free to pick any provider you feel is the best fit for you. If you don't feel like searching for an insurance provider, we offer an easy way to enroll in the minimum liability only coverage as part of your rent payment. If you know you want additional coverage on your belongings but don't want to shop around, we have identified a national insurance provider specializing in student renter's insurance coverage. EPremium Insurance has agreed to provide a comprehensive policy to residents at our communities at a preferred group rate! You can enroll in less than 2 minutes at their website here: ePremium Insurance.
A lot has changed since mom and dad went to college, and certainly for the better! The individual lease is one of the latest changes! With this type of lease, you are only responsible for your student's rent. You're not liable for the roommates' rent at all! Unlike a traditional lease or a joint lease, if your roommate transfers or graduates, you have nothing to worry about. A lot of places here in Raleigh still offer the joint lease -- don't fall for it! It can become a major headache overnight!
All of our Raleigh Off-Campus properties offer FREE Roommate Matching Services to all of our residents. You (or your student) won't have to worry about finding a roommate online or flyering the entire campus. We'll do all of the work! All you have to do is fill out our comprehensive roommate matching form and our professionally trained Roommate Matching staff will find the best roommate for you!
All of our residents and their guarantors have access to their property's online resident portal, helping you and them keep up to date with their life here in Raleigh!

Typically not...but with us it can! We offer a program called LevelCredit; this program allows for on-time rent payments to reflect positively on your credit report. With the hustle and bustle of balancing classes and a healthy social life, we know that most college students don’t even think about building their credit history until after graduation when it’s time to start taking those big life steps. LevelCredit offers a way for busy students like you to get a head start!
When you enroll in the LevelCredit program, your on-time monthly rent payments will be reported to 2 major credit bureaus (on-time payments are anything within 30 days of the due date). If you’re already a current resident and want to enroll, you’re in luck! Up to 24 months of your previous on-time rent payments can be reported to help you build that score even more (small fee applies for this option). The enrollment process is very easy! You can directly enroll yourself using the link below for your specific property!
