another step on their road to independence. At The Avenue on
College, our goal is to make that transition as easy as possible

Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility
At The Avenue on College, we offer individual by the bed leases.
This is different from a traditional apartment lease, with one
major benefit: you and your student are only ever responsible for
your rental installment.
As part of the lease agreement, The Avenue requires each student
to have a “Guarantor” (a person 25 or older who is a resident of
the U.S.) that will assume the financial responsibility of the
lease in the event the resident is unable to.
If a Guarantor is not available, student residents can take
advantage of our monthly guarantor waiver fee through the LEAP Easy
Program. For any non-student residents, they would need to apply
and be approved through the LEAP Easy Program and pay an annual fee
for their lease to be guaranteed.
Moving your son or daughter out on their own can be expensive.
At The Avenue on College, we support families with many
student-friendly amenities which are included in the overall rental
installment to help ease the financial burden.
There is no additional charge for: Internet, water, gas, cable
TV, flat-screen TV, fitness center, computer lab, study rooms,
printing, and monthly social events. Each resident will be
responsible for their electric bill. This means that students don’t
have to worry about a bunch of additional utility bills each
The Avenue on College is a social community with a vibrant
residential life program focused on social, physical, charitable,

such as free pizza Fridays, breakfast on the go, and other fun ways
to meet new friends and create lasting college memories.
