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 $35, and can be paid online with a credit card. We cannot process your application or reserve your room until we receive this fee.
Clemson Villages makes life easy for you by leasing by the bedroom. Each bedroom suite in an apartment has a separate lease agreement. You are only responsible for the rent for your bedroom. All roommates 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.
Clemson 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 Clemson Villages approval standards. Certain rules and fees may also apply.
Roomate Matching & Requests
Finding roomates 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 Clemson Villages. The roommate matching 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 Clemson 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 all roommates sign our Co-Ed agreement form. Clemson 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 after 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, and a daily $5 charge until the rent is paid.
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 and the first rent installment before move-in day. Your lease application contains a specific list of everything you need.
The application fee is $35 and there is a $75 administration charge. We do not currently charge a security deposit.
