Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to have an individual lease?

Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester, you’re not responsible for their payment.

What is included in the rent?

The Post on Nord’s rent makes life easy. Your rent includes: utilities (water, sewer, trash pickup, electric with a Green Cap), premium cable package, wireless Internet, washer & dryer, access to all of The Post on Nord’s amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.

Do you have a roommate matching system?

Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information.

When is my rent due?

You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under the lease – one installment, two installments, or twelve installments.  If you choose to pay a single installment for the entire amount, that single installment is due August 1.  If you choose to pay in two semester installments, those installments are due August 1 and January 1.  If you choose to pay in twelve installments, the first installment is due on August 1 and the remaining eleven installments are due on the 1st of the next eleven months.  Please note that these are all installment payment options and not monthly rent.

How do I pay my rent?

Pay with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check. Pay with a credit card online through The Post on Nord's Resident Portal.

Are leases for families with children available?

Yes. The property’s policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of the property, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.

Student Benefits

Get Better Grades

Students who live with other students achieve higher grades than those who do not and are almost twice as likely to make the Dean’s list. This is true for all college students of all grade levels, not just freshmen.

Assure Graduating

Students who live with other students have been shown to have a much higher rate of graduation. The chance of graduating increases by approximately 25% for those who live at least two years or more with other students, not just their first year.

Forge Lasting Friendships

Students who live with other students develop last friendships with individuals who can help through the tough times, be there during the happy times and be witness to all the first-time experiences that college life brings.

Save Money

Students will have to spend money on extra out-of-pocket expenses like monthly utilities or furnishing an apartment.

Cut Out The Commute

The price of gas and parking make living next to campus an economical choice. Students also save time by avoiding traffic and the time it takes to park and then walk to class. In addition, it also helps to lower our carbon footprint, making living next to campus the greenest choice a student can make.

Access Campus and Student Sponsored Events

A short walk takes students to the campus facilities like the library and classrooms. This gives students easy access to dialogues, presentations, art shows and sporting events. There is a high degree of association between being involved in campus activities and staying in school.


In a conventional apartment complex or house, students may live next to anyone, good or bad. Post on Nord is a student oriented living community designed with the modern student’s needs in mind.

Stress-Free Move!

Moving into Post on Nord will be the easiest thing you have ever done.  With a fully furnished apartment, all appliances already present, and a fully loaded clubhouse/amenity package, all you need to bring is a suitcase and your toothbrush!  No more hassle of moving furniture, moving trucks, or appliance rentals.
