A guarantor or co-signer is the individual who will be responsible for paying your rent in the event that you are unable to.
This role is usually taken on by a parent or guardian, and it acts as a safety net to ensure that your rent is always covered since student life can be tumultuous, and stable, consistent income isn’t always guaranteed as a student.
Your guarantor or co-signer must be able to prove a minimum income of $40k/year. We may request a credit or background check be completed for the guarantor, and all guarantors will be called after signing to confirm their obligations and to receive information on the apartment.
Alternatively, students earning $40k/year themselves may proceed without a guarantor. If this is the case, we may request a credit check instead.
