Do my roommate and I pay the same rate?
Not necessarily. We do individual liability leasing which means that your lease agreement only applies to your individual bed space. 
How can I guarantee my current spot or apartment?
The only way to guarantee your spot at is to sign a lease agreement. While completing an application starts the process, it does not fully secure a space.

How do I sign my lease?
All leases are signed electronically online via the ResidentPortal. Your guarantor also has an account that they must use to sign their lease documents. You do not have to visit the office in order to sign your lease contract.

Who needs to sign the lease?
A lease contract is only valid if the primary lease holder (the resident) signs the documents. If there is a guarantor, the guarantor must also sign the lease. Ponderosa Village will then countersign after all parties sign all documents.

When will my new lease start?
All new leases start on August 15, 2019 and end on July 31, 2020. 

How do I know if I qualify?
Please contact the leasing office if you want to learn if you qualify to live at Ponderosa Village.


Renewing your Lease

What is a renewal lease?
If you are already a resident, you do not have to reapply. Instead, you will complete a renewal lease that will renew your contract for Fall 2019.

Am I guaranteed the same apartment when I renew my lease?
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee your spot. All leases are signed on a first-come, first-served basis which is why you should renew your lease as soon as possible. 

How do I renew my lease?
  1. Login to the ResidentPortal and find your renewal offer located in the red banner at the top of the page.
  2. Click "Review offer" and follow the prompts.
  3. Once you click "Complete Renewal", our leasing team will be notified that you have accepted your renewal offer and will generate your updated lease for signature.
  4. You will receive an email when your lease is available on the ResidentPortal. All parties (including any guarantors) are required to sign the lease document.
  5. Once you have signed your lease, you have officially secured your spot for next year!
