Questions & Answers

Got questions? Hopefully this will help, but if there’s anything else you want to ask us about, call us at 619.286.3990.

Leasing & Individual Leases

Leasing online is easy. Simply complete the online application, or contact us to request a paper copy. Everything is on a first-come, first-serve 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 $40 and can be paid online through credit card. We cannot process your application or reserve your room until we receive this fee.

Campus Evolution 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 Campus Evolution Village’s approval standards. Certain rules and fees may also apply.

Campus Evolution Villages makes life easy for you by leasing by the bedroom. You are only responsible for the rent for your bedroom. All roommates in an apartment are equally responsible for their share of utilities and 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.

Roomate Matching & Requests

Finding people to share your apartment 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 Campus Evolution Villages. The 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 Campus Evolution 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 your guarantor is ok with it. Campus Evolution 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. 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 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, deposits and the first rent installment before move-in day. Your lease application contains a specific list of everything you need.

The application fee is $40 and there is a $75 Green Fee.  Everyone is required to have a guarantor, and deposits are dependent on credit rating.

Utilities & Parking

Internet, gas, water, sewer, and garbage are all included in your rent. An electric allowance of $30 per bed per month is included in your rent. There is an annual service fee of $60 for Conservice Utility Management which covers the cost of service for billing roommates for their portion of utility charges, making it easier for everyone.

Absolutely, and it’s fast and free. Every bedroom is directly linked to the internet with wired and wireless access, and we have a Computer Lounge.

We have a seven story gated parking garage equipped with both single and tandem parking options. Tandem spaces are $80 and single spaces are $55 per installment.

What's included?

Personal loss and damages are not covered under apartment lease agreements. We require you to purchase renter’s insurance, which is typically inexpensive. For your convenience and benefit, we can introduce you to the team at Multifamily Insurance Partners. MFIP is an independent insurance expert with over 15 years working exclusively with renters and can help you find a quality, customized policy that meets all of your lease requirements.  Click here for more info.

No, we are not pet friendly.

It’s fine to express yourself via custom paint colors, though you need to have the color approved by management and a fee will be charged at move-out to return your walls to their original color.

Private singles and shared Missions have standard Full size beds. Shared bedrooms in our Imperial and Montezuma floor-plans will include standard Twin size beds.

Mail is delivered by the US Postal Service to your mailbox. We do accept resident deliveries but do not sign for mail requiring it. Additionally, packages can be picked up in the clubhouse office during normal office and extended resident services hours. You will need to pick up your own packages and show ID when doing so.

We’re really excited about our furniture package. Our furnishing option includes: leather-like couch, leather-like sofa chair, 42″ TV, coffee table, end table, bar stools, full size bed frame and mattress (Imperial and Montezuma double ups include 2 twin beds instead), 2 under drawers, night stand, desk and desk chair.
