Yes, we strongly encourage students to select their own roommates. Come as a group or use our roommate matching system to find a perfect match. If you don’t have a roommate, don’t worry. Our leasing agents will help you find apartment mates. Our online leasing system allows you to complete a roommate matching questionnaire, search for compatible roommates, and indicate who you want to live with. You can even message potential roommates online to ask them the questions that are important to you!
Utilities are included. We pay for water, sewer, electric, heating, cooling, and gas. We even pay for high speed internet and HD TV (including cable TV in your bedroom).
Yes! Penn State will reimburse your financial aid payment directly to you. You can use your reimbursement to pay your Nittany Student Housing rent. Please Note – Penn State does not make a direct payment to us.
Before you occupy your unit, you can pay in person or by mail with cash, check or money order. We can also sent a PayPal invoice to you upon request. Once you move in, you will have the additional option to pay by e-check (direct withdraw from your bank account) or credit card.
Rent is due on your start date and the first of the month thereafter. You may pay the whole year or by semester as long as you stay ahead of the monthly installment that is due.
Tenants are required to pay a $250 security deposit fee and a $100 administrative/application fee 90 days before the start date of the lease or immediately upon signing the lease if within 90 days. The first rent installment is due on your lease start date and before you will be provided a key to your apartment.
You are required to have a parent or guardian co-sign your lease if you are under 18 years old. Contact our office and we will provide the appropriate lease documents.
A lease is legally binding when both you and Nittany Student Housing sign the document. You should be certain that you want to live with us before you sign your lease. A guarantee, deposit, or rent payment is not required to create your financial obligation. You should remove your name from the on campus housing waitlist if you have signed your Nittany Student Housing lease.
Most students do not meet the financial requirements to lease an apartment without a parent, grandparent, or other guardian supporting their financial obligation. We require the guarantee to be signed and submitted to our office before you can occupy your unit.
