Moving off campus is a rite of passage for most students – another step on their road to independence. At The Lodge Apartments, our goal is to make that transition as easy as possible for you and your child.
Professional Management and
The Lodge Apartments offers professional on-site management and 24-hour, on-site maintenance. Our staff lives and works on site, and annually participates in extensive customer service training to make your student’s living experience a memorable one. Our local executive director is supported by skilled and experienced teams focused on resident services, maintenance and residential life. Students who need assistance can meet with team members in the office, or fill out work request forms online for added convenience.
Individual Leases & Financial
At The Lodge Apartments, we offer individual leases by the bedroom (not the unit). This is different from a joint and several lease, and has a major benefit: You and your child are only responsible for your rent. You are never responsible for paying a roommate’s rent, even if they graduate or transfer. As part of the lease agreement, The Lodge requires each student to have a “Guarantor,” or a person 25 or older who is a resident of the U.S. that will vouch for the financial responsibility of the lease. If a Guarantor is not available, a “Prepaid Approval” is an alternative and requires 1 1/2 months of prepaid rent used for the final 1 1/2 lease installments.
Moving your child out on their own can be expensive. At The Lodge, we support families with many student-friendly amenities that are free and included in the overall rent to help ease the financial burden. There is no additional charge for:
Safety & Security
The safety and security of residents is our number one priority at The Lodge. That’s why we offer a gated community with resident-only building access. In addition, we have locks on all building doors, apartment doors, bedroom doors, and windows. There are security cameras throughout the community, and security is enhanced after hours with courtesy officers and community assistants who are on call and live on site.
The Lodge is a social community with a vibrant residential life program focused on social, physical, charitable and educational activities (and many free food events, too!). Residents are active participants in a variety of monthly resident events hosted by our team of dedicated community assistants and managers. The Lodge also regularly offers popular social events such as volleyball tournaments, breakfast on the go, and other fun ways to meet new friends and create lasting college memories.
Every year, many students
hope for the opportunity to become one of The
Lodge Community Assistants, or CA. CA's are assigned to groups
of residents, and offer peer guidance and support during a
student’s transition to off-campus housing. CA's contact residents
weekly, and assist them with everything from how to use appliances
to roommate problem solving. The Lodge hires approximately 8 CAs a
year, who are paid with on-site living accommodations. The CA
position provides students with valuable resume-building experience
through their work as a community leader, problem solver, event
planner, sales associate, and friend.
