Yes.  We are a pet-friendly housing facility.  We have a 2-pet limit, and each pet requires a one-time $500 pet fee.  In addition to the pet fee, we require a signed pet addendum form, pet photo and your most up to date pet vaccinations.

Do you allow roommates?

Yes.  We call these individuals authorized guests.  Authorized guests are any person that will be living with the student on a permanent basis or that will be staying 5 or more consecutive days with the student.  A background check is required for this individual and the charge for this background check is the responsibility of the student.  The background checks typically cost $30.
