MOVE-IN: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

We know what you’re thinking. Can’t wait until move-in? We’re not so patient either. That’s why we created a list of only the most important need-to-knows for your upcoming move.

In the meantime, drop us a line if you have any questions or just want to chat. No ridiculously long phone menu when you call us – we promise.

Here’s to the start of a healthy (digital) relationship.

KEEP SCROLLING

MOVE-IN AND FIRST PAYMENT

We love that you already have move-in marked in your calendar for 9:00am on August 15, 2024. And to show our appreciation, we’ve compiled important information you’ll need to know. Sure, we’re asking you to read about late charges and paperwork, but it doesn’t make our gratitude less real.

When you arrive at University House for move-in, please check-in at the drive-thru check-in tent to pick up the keys to your new home.

If you want to avoid late charges (and who doesn’t?), you’ll want to make sure that your first installment is paid by August 1, 2024. Late charges will apply unless we have received the first installment payment within the five-day grace period (by August 6, 2024). Checks or money orders should be made payable to University House Midtown and can be mailed or brought directly to our office.

You can also pay online through the resident portal using a debit card, credit card or electronic checking transfer, or by automatic recurring charge to your debit card, credit card or bank account. You can save money on convenience fees by paying with a bank account as well.

GUARANTOR FORM OR PRE-PAYMENT

Class hasn’t even started yet and we’re already talking about paperwork. Lucky for you, this won’t be graded.

Nothing ruins move-in faster than missing paperwork (trust us). If you haven’t done so already, please submit your guarantor form. We’ll need to approve this before you’re able to move-in. Alternately, you will be required to prepay the final two installments in advance in order to move in, as described in your Housing Agreement.

UTILITIES

Please also note that there is a monthly administrative fee of up to $6.00 to maintain your electricity and water billing, as provided in your Housing Agreement. This amount will be billed with your regular installments. Our billing provider will e-mail statements for electricity and water billing directly to each resident, but all payments must be submitted to us using one of the payment methods outlined above.

RENTER’S LIABILITY INSURANCE

It’s probably not something you normally think about, but you are required to have at least $100,000 of liability protection by the time you move in, and throughout your stay with us. This doesn’t cost much, and is designed to protect you if you accidentally cause a fire or flood. As unlikely as that sounds, if something happens, you’ll be very glad to have it. How easy have we made it to take care of this requirement? You don’t have to do anything at all; we’ll automatically charge your account $15 per installment, waive the requirement to provide separate insurance, and buy our own insurance to cover the same risks. If you have your own liability insurance and don’t want to be charged for this, please upload your insurance certificate and we’ll let you know right away if it meets the requirements. We also recommend insuring your personal property—click here for an easy option for this optional coverage.

EXPRESS CHECK-IN

To show you how glad we are that you’re here, we have a special just-for-you perk: express check-in AKA the key to beating long lines on move-in day.

To get on the fast track for check-in, click here for the resident portal link and register online. From here, you’ll want to make sure you can answer yes to each of the questions below:

  • Did you make your first installment payment?
  • Did you enter your vehicle information (if applicable)?
  • Did you sign any pending documents?

If you answered yes to all of the above, you’re one step closer to your new views. Besides that, all you need to bring with you is a valid photo ID (and an appetite—we’ll have snacks waiting for you). Please click here to sign up for a move-in time on your desired move-in date. Contact us if you have any questions.

University House Midtown will have lanes blocked off on Spring Street on move-in day. Residents moving in will be given 20 minutes to unload their belongings. Please do not park in the parking garage unless you have reserved a garage space and picked up your parking pass.

Someone must stay with the vehicle at all times, so please make sure you have at least one person to unload and get in line while the other person stays with the car. Please attempt to minimize the number of vehicles, trailers and/or moving trucks you require to move-in. The area will be extremely congested on move-in day.

Please do not park on the grass or sidewalks, next to the buildings or on loading dock. Violators may be subject to ticket and towing at their expense.

There are four elevators at University House Midtown which will be managed by the management staff on move-in day. It is strongly recommended that you only move essential items and that additional furniture be brought only if necessary. University House Midtown will not be available to unload your car or carry your belongings. Please plan accordingly and bring any helpful moving equipment such as dollies, speed packs or carts as they will not be available.
