You will be shown the convenience fee when making the payment and have to agree to the extra fee before the payment is processed.

Can I request a specific apartment/roommates?

We will do the best to accommodate specific apartment requests, but it can never be guaranteed. If you are signing for a 2 or 4 bedroom, you would need to request your roommates upon completion of your roommate matching card (during the application process) and we will do our best to ensure you are with that person.

How close to campus are you?

We are across the street from Florida International University.

How are roommates matched?

We have partnered with RoomSync to provide a modern matching platform where residents choose their own roommates. After you complete the leasing process you will be emailed a link to join our RoomSync network. You will then log in to RoomSync using Facebook, create a matching profile, and begin your search to find your new best friend - or roommate for starters. If you already have a roommate in mind, you can confirm your roommate request within RoomSync.

How are the rooms assigned?

Residents who already have preferred roommates can confirm their roommate match requests using RoomSync, our roommate matching platform. If they do not already have a roommate, residents will search for and choose their own roommate using RoomSync. Residents will be able to communicate with each other during and after the selection process. In the event that potential roommates discover that they are no longer compatible, they can request a different roommate and we will do our best to accommodate any change request. To provide sufficient time and the greatest opportunity for residents to find the perfect roommate, they should apply and sign a lease as early as possible.

If I'm over 21, do I need a guarantor?

Yes. All leases are required to have a guarantor. If an approved guarantor cannot be obtained, EdR Management, Inc. will accept a security deposit of two (2) installments.

To live on site a parking pass is required from FIU. Parking will be at the university parking decks across the street at FIU.

Unfortunately, there is no way to cancel your lease. The lease agreement is legally binding. You can go through the lease assignment process as outlined in the lease agreement. There is a $200 fee associated with this process. We encourage you to contact our Leasing and Marketing Manager if you feel you need assistance or more information on this process.
