To be matched with a roommate, all residents need to do is fill out a roommate profile during their application process to be matched with one or more roommates. Upon receiving your profile, we will carefully consider factors such as your habits, preferences, lifestyle, and shared characteristics to pair you with a compatible roommate. For additional information on our roommate-matching process, contact us today!

Here at Collegiate Communities, we offer individual housing contracts, which means residents sign their own rental agreements instead of signing a joint contract with their roommates. This means your student is only responsible for their monthly installments, providing residents peace of mind knowing they are not liable if their roommate misses a payment or transfers schools!

Residents may bring whatever furniture they wish! We provide bedroom furniture, which includes a full twin-size bed set and dresser, but residents can choose not to receive this. Apartment residents will need to provide their own furniture in common areas, while house residents are expected to provide and use their own furniture.
