Apartment Selection

Preparing for your Appointment

  1. Review the Vacancy List about 10 minutes before your appointment and make a list of 5-10 apartments you and your group might be interested in. NOTE: Special Attribute denotes a space that requires the signing of an addendum stating your understanding that you might not be able to renew for the following leasing year
  2. Refer to the Open Leasing Resource page for details about installment payments, layouts, sample leases and apartment attributes
  3. Review the Group Leader/Individual Selection Steps Below

To view the slides from the February 21 webinar, please visit:   https://go.umd.edu/SCCCTYApartmentSelection 

These include information about:

  • An overview of the process
  • Group formation steps, screenshots, and reminders
  • Apartment selection steps, screenshots, and reminders

 

After apartment spaces are selected for your group, and leases are signed in the StarRez portal, $25 and $300 payments will be due. Links will be distributed for property-specific payments on or about March 4 and be due by March 11.

Payments are due by from students new to the selected property only. Payment portals will not be available until March 4.

Appointment Requirements

Being assigned a leasing appointment time does not mean that you are guaranteed a space in Commons or Courtyards. A leasing appointment offers you the opportunity to attend a leasing meeting to see what apartment spaces are available at that time. Leasing appointment times are based on Priority Groups. As students with better (i.e. lower) Priority Groups attend their leasing appointments and sign leases for particular spaces with their eligible pull-ins, the number and types of available apartment spaces will be reduced. Remember, submitting a leasing application and accepting a leasing appointment time also does not obligate you to sign a lease. However, if you choose to accept an apartment space during your leasing appointment you will be required to sign a lease for that space.

 

Following your apartment selection, you will need to provide:

  1. $300 (Lease Reservation Payment)
  2. $25 (Application Fee)
  3. Signed and initialed lease (including SSN) and completed and signed confirmation page
  4. Completed SCC Guarantor Form or CTY Guarantor Form
  5. All Lease and Guarantor forms will be distributed via DocuSign. The portal for payment submissions will be provided in the same DocuSign email.

You will only turn in payments if you actually choose a space and sign a lease. No money is due if you do not select a space.  

A payment link for the property you select will be sent on or about March 4.
