I am a student. Will my financial aid cover Hopson Flats housing charges?
It depends on the type of financial aid you have. We suggest you contact your college’s financial aid specialist to get specifics.
Can I live with my friends?
Definitely. Should you have flatmates already lined up, entire flat leases are available. Hopson Flats offers 2-, 3- and 4-person units. You and your flatmates can also contract a unit by bedroom, rather than per flat unit. This means that you’re only responsible for paying for yourself—not your flatmates. Even if one of your flatmates moves out, you’ll never have to pay housing charges for anyone but yourself.
What if I need a flatmate?
We’ll be happy to direct you toward resources where you can find other people to share your flat.
Can I bring my pet?
Yes, pets are welcome! You must be in a full unit lease. Pets are not allowed in roommate placement and individual lease apartments. You can have up to two small pets for an additional $250 fee and an additional $35 per pet per month charge. No aggressive breed dogs allowed. Pets are subject to approval.
What is the term of my lease?
Leases run for 12 months. 10-month leases are also available for an additional $50/month for individual leases, or $100/month for entire flat leases.
What if I don’t stay in town during the summer?
You’re allowed to sub-lease your flat, if needed.
Where do I park?
Parking is available in the city lot located behind the building. Access to the lot is available on a monthly basis. Please contact us for details. There’s also street parking available in the area.
I’m a current resident, and I want more of my friends to move in. Do you offer any referral bonuses?
Yes—refer your friends and receive $50 off your rent payment. Just be sure your friends add your name to their application!
