Leasing & Individual Leases
Yes. Leasing online is easy. Simply complete the online application, or contact us to request a paper copy. Everything is on a first-come-first-served basis and our rooms lease up quickly. It is important for you to provide us payment of the application fees along with your application. The application fee is $25, and can be paid online with a credit card. We cannot process your application or reserve your room until we receive this fee.
Campus Evolution Villages makes life easy for you by leasing by the bedroom. You are only responsible for the rent for your bedroom. All roommates in an apartment are equally responsible for damages or missing furnishings in common areas. It is reassuring to know if a roommate does move out before their lease ends, you are not responsible for his or her rent.
Campus Evolution Villages does not offer a lease buy-out option, but we are sensitive to the special needs of our residents. At the manager’s discretion, residents may assign their lease to a new resident. You are responsible for finding your own replacement. Any replacement must meet Campus Evolution Village’s approval standards. Certain rules and fees may also apply.
Roomate Matching & Requests
Finding people to share your apartment is easy! Just complete the roommate matching form. Be sure to identify any friends you would like to room with and whether or not they are currently leasing from Campus Evolution Villages. The form includes information about your preferences in roommate; TV watching, noise level, study habits, music etc. If you do not wish to select your own roommates, we will place you in an apartment according to your choice of apartment size and your gender. When there is a vacant bedroom in an apartment, that room can be leased at any time at the discretion of Campus Evolution Villages. However, roommates placed by our management team will always meet the gender requirements of the current residents sharing that specific unit. All of our apartments are non-smoking.
Yes, if all roommates give approval, and your guarantor is ok with it. Campus Evolution Villages will not use roommate matching to match members of the opposite gender.
Should there be differences that simply cannot be worked out, residents are able to transfer, dependent on availability (a transfer fee applies and the transferee will be required to pay the rental rate for the new bedroom).
Lease Term & Rental Installments
The leases are just under a year. Rent can be paid in 12 equal installments or by semester.
Rent is due on the 1st and is late on the 3rd. For your convenience you can pay online, bring your payment by the office during normal office hours or use the secure 24-hour drop slot. For your safety, we do not accept cash. Please arrange to make payments by personal check, money order or bank cashier’s check. A convenience fee will be applied to all online credit card rent payments. There’s a $50 late charge as of the 4th of the month and an additional $5 for everyday the rent is late past the 4th.
Unfortunately, we do not accept partial payments. If we do not receive your full rent payment, as outlined in your lease, a late charge will be automatically assessed. We encourage you to avoid unnecessary charges.
There is a returned check charge (as outlined in your lease) for any checks not honored. You’ll need to bring in a cashier’s check or money order for the appropriate amount.
Typically, residents pay all fees, deposits and the first rent installment before move-in day. Your lease application contains a specific list of everything you need.
The application fee is $25 and there is a $75 one-time administrative fee. We do not currently charge a security deposit.
Utilities & Parking
Water, sewer, cable, internet, and trash remove are included in the rent. Each apartment has its own electric meter; electricity is to be placed into a residents name for the lease term. The bill will be paid directly to Duke Energy.
