A few things that set us apart…
CLOSE TO CAMPUS
Our properties are either located near campus or we offer complimentary shuttle service to and from campus. Some of our properties are also located directly on the the campus of city bus lines.
Unfortunately, crime has no address. No security system, courtesy patrol or electronic security device can guarantee complete protection against crime. We do have our own contract courtesy patrol to help monitor the community. However, we ask residents to contact the local police department if they see any suspicious activity. As always, you should contact 911 immediately for any emergency or criminal activity you might observe. We ask that you also let us know in the management office if you see any suspicious activity.
While we put forth our best effort for the well-being of our residents, at no time are we able to promise, warrant or guarantee the safety or security of any resident or personal property against the criminal actions of others. Every resident has the responsibility to take care to protect himself/herself and to maintain appropriate insurance to protect their belongings.
BECOMING A CO-SIGNER
If you apply for an apartment and you do not qualify to live here on your own, you will need to have a Co-Signer for the apartment. The Co-Signer would need to fill out the “Co-Signer Application” and “Co-Signer Agreement” (this form needs to be notarized OR signed in the Leasing Office) and submit these to the Leasing Office. Once the Co-Signer is approved, the Applicant would then be approved to live at a Homestead U property! Please contact the leasing offices for more details.
It is now required that you insure all of the contents of your apartment home at all of our communities. Homestead U is not responsible for the loss of contents due to fire, flood, theft, or other occurrence. Renter’s insurance is economical and a great way to set your mind at ease. We recommend a minimum of $100,000 coverage per apartment. There are many resources where you can purchase renter’s insurance; we recommend ePremium. Please CLICK HERE and select your property to get started.
Emergency maintenance is available at all of our properties. Residents will be given the proper contact phone number for their property. Requests are deemed an emergency at the discretion of the maintenance office. Your student can also submit routine maintenance requests online through our websites.
Our properties in Arizona and Texas offer individual leases. This means that you are only responsible for your student.
As an International Renter, once you’ve reserved an apartment at one of our communities, you will need to then submit the necessary paperwork to live here. You will need to fill out the Application and submit it along with a copy of your ID and Proof of Income. Passports work as copies of your ID, and we accept documents such as Offer Letters, I-20, and J-1 Forms as Proof of Income.
No roommates in mind… No problem! Our communities offer a great roommate matching program that will give each individual the opportunity to meet prospective roommates prior to moving in together. Every resident completes a resident profile sheet that will assist in roommate matching.
Our properties all host a large clubhouse filled with the latest and greatest amenities is available for the enjoyment of all residents. On-site management and maintenance is also available in the clubhouse on a daily basis to assist with the needs of your student.
RESIDENT EVENTS & SERVICES
Our staff strives to provide the highest level of service to each and every resident. Weekly and monthly social events are planned for the enjoyment of each resident. This gives our properties a sense of community spirit.
