What’s an individual lease?
An individual lease means you’re only responsible for your portion of the rent. Although you may have roommates with whom you share the common areas of your apartment, their names are not on your lease, and you are not financially accountable for them.

Do I have to pay a deposit?
There is a per person deposit fee. Please contact the office for details.

How long is the lease?
We offer 12-month leases.

Do you have a roommate matching service?
Yes. When you complete your lease contract, you’ll get a profile card with the option to provide your study habits, social habits and hobbies. If you haven’t already selected your roommate(s), we‘ll use this information, along with your floor plan preferences, to match you with a compatible resident or residents.

Can I pick my roommates?
Yes. You can list the roommate(s) you have chosen on your profile card when completing your lease. Roommate matches will not be honored unless all roommates list each other, and all requests are mutual.

Can I request a specific unit?
You can list your preferences on your profile card and housing application, and we’ll do our best to place you in a unit that fits those requests. All requests are met on a first-come, first-served basis and are taken in order based on the date we received your application.

How close is SQ5 to Georgia Tech?

How do I get in the parking garage?

What’s a guarantor?
We require applicants to provide someone to guarantee their housing contract.

When is a guarantor needed?
For all residents, a guarantor will be required to complete the guaranty agreement.

What paperwork requires a guarantor?
The guarantor will need to sign the guaranty agreement. If the resident is not of legal age to execute a contract, the guarantor will be required to sign both the lease and the guaranty agreement.

Can I be my own guarantor?
A resident can act as their own guarantor if they can show documentation that they have an income greater than three times the monthly rent installment, as outlined in the lease agreement.
