Leasing Information for Parents
Many of our residents are making their housing decisions with the help of their parents or guardians. Here is some helpful information about our properties and leasing options that we hope you will find useful in choosing off-campus housing.

All-Inclusive Individual Leases
Leasing at The Commons is easy, we offer all-inclusive rates and individual leases. Included in the rate is electric, water, sewer, trash, cable, and internet. Having an individual lease means that our residents are responsible for their bedroom and the common areas, not the entire apartment. Each bedroom is individually locked to assure that each resident has privacy. The Commons also offers the option of a nine-month or twelve-month lease.
