You are responsible to turn on the utilities to your apartment. You can find a list of utility providers and their phone numbers here.
Our apartments come furnished (starting Fall 2012). The bedrooms have twin size beds, dressers, and desks. Each bedroom has a closet or clothes rack for hanging up clothes. The living rooms come with couches and the kitchens have either a breakfast bar with barstools or a table and chairs. All rooms have overhead lighting.
Furniture you will want to bring with you – desk chair, end tables, coffee tables, lamps, TV (some of your apartments include them, please refer to your lease).
You are renting your house as a group, so as a group you are responsible for the total amount of the rent. So if one of your housemates doesn’t come back to school you have three options:
The Parent Guarantee form is like having a co-signer on the lease. Since you are a college student, you most likely don’t have much money. So if your financial aid doesn’t come through or for some other reason you are unable to pay the rent, we need to know they are backing you up.
If you are getting financial aid/loans and are going to use the proceeds from them to pay your rent, we will work with you.
When your rent is due, we ask that you send in a $500 down payment and a copy of your award letter showing us that your financial aid has been approved. Then you can pay us the balance of your rent once your loan funds.
The math just isn't in your favor (6+ billion against you and your roomies). You're pretty much out of luck. Play videogames until they get you.
Call the Tow Truck at 724-463-3851 and they will come and tow the cars that shouldn’t be there.
It’s at Buggeys Garage located at 500 Philadelphia St, Indiana, PA 15701. The phone number is 724-463-3851.
If you’re staying with us in the same apartment in the fall, congratulations! It’s free and you just keep your keys.
If you’re not coming back in the fall, please contact us to sign a summer lease. The rent is $425 per summer session.
Within 30 days of everyone moving out of your apartment, normally the end of May, beginning of June. However if people from your group are staying for summer classes, you won’t get it back until after they move out.
We allow people to start moving in on the Wednesday before classes begin in August. If you need to move in earlier than that, please contact us so that we can try to get ready for you. There is an early move in fee of $75 per week that you move prior to that Wednesday.
You receive a Welcome Packet that is mailed to your home address towards the end of July with all your move in information. But the short answer is to stop by our office located at 835 Grant St.
If it’s before 5pm, someone will be around to open it up for you. If its after 5pm, on weekends, or during holidays, call the emergency maintenance number and if someone is available they will come let you in.
