EARLY ARRIVAL AND FALL FAQS

What does The Village Apartments’ revitalization project entail?

We are excited to share that beginning May 11, 2020, we will be replacing the siding and windows, renovating kitchens, replacing apartment doors and hardware, and replacing the stairwells in all 11 community buildings. Our goal is to enhance the overall resident experience at The Village, and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation while we make necessary improvements.

Can residents stay in their rooms during construction?

Construction will be extensive and it’s important contractors can access apartments and complete the job in a timely and efficient manner. For residents’ safety and comfort during construction, we have made arrangements for them to relocate to a USH residence hall located on North Campus. Residents will not be permitted to return to their apartment. We recognize this is an inconvenience, but look forward to the exciting changes that will take place at The Village.

What’s the next step in the relocation process?

Upon moving into the Village Apartments in August, residents were provided with an option to relocate into a single room, double room, or choose to move out on May 10, 2020. Residents moving out on May 10, 2020 will receive check out instructions. Residents choosing to relocate to a North Campus residence hall will receive a specific date and time for their relocation to occur.

How does this affect residents that are graduating and have final exams?

All final exams will be complete by Friday, May 8, 2020. If a resident is graduating on Saturday, May 9 or Sunday May 10, 2020, they will have until Monday, May 11, 2020 to either move out of their apartment or relocate to one of our North Campus residence halls.

How does leasing work with a USH community?

Residents will be notified of their North Campus assignment in April 2020. Housing assignments will be sent to the email address on file for both the resident and guarantor.

What if residents aren’t interested in relocating to North Campus?

If residents do not wish to relocate to North Campus, they have the option to vacate their apartments by Sunday, May 10, 2020 at 10:00am. They will not receive a rental reimbursement from USH and their lease agreements will expire effective May 10, 2020 at 10:00am.

Will residents receive rent reimbursement?

Despite operating on a longer, 11-month lease term, rent at The Village is billed on a semester basis for fall and spring, just as all other on-campus housing. The Village residents pay a similar cost split between two semester payments but receive an added value having been permitted to stay in their assignment into the summer months. To make up for the lost time at The Village due to construction, we are offering to relocate residents to North Campus where their existing lease agreement length will remain in full force and effect with no additional charge.
