All-inclusive rent means you pay one bill that covers your
rent, as well as most of your utilities. At The Avenue on College,
the internet, cable, water, trash, and sewer are included in each
rental installment. You're only responsible for your electric bill.
Let The Avenue take care of the rest!
Is there transportation to campus?

the campus bus route. We're so close, in fact, that many residents
ride their bike or walk to class!
How long are your leases? Are short-term leases available?
We offer 12-installment leases which run from 08/15/2019 to
07/31/2020. We do not currently offer short-term leases; however,
if you're unable to stay through the end of your lease agreement

the remainder of your lease.
What is a Guarantor? Is there additional paperwork
A guarantor (also referred to as a Co-Signer) is someone

Your guarantor will simply need to fill out a one-page form
which we will notarize in our office.
Do I have to pay a security deposit?
Good news! We no longer charge a security deposit.
What is Roommate Matching?
The Avenue offers a program called Roommate Matching for anyone

location preference, and many other details.

share of the rent. You can rest easy at The Avenue!
