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 monthly installment?
The Lyndon’s rent makes life easy. Your rent includes: premium cable, wireless internet, washer & dryer, access to all of The Lyndon’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 are my installments due?
Installments are always due the 1st of the month. You can pay up front (due August 1), in semester installments (due August 1 and January 1), or in twelve equal installments (due August 1 and on the first of the month for the next 11 consecutive months).
How do I pay my installments?
There are several ways to pay your installments: Pay with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check. Pay with a credit card online through The Lyndon’s Resident Portal. (Service fee may apply.*) Have your financial institution automatically deduct from your bank account each month to send in payment or pay with check online using your resident portal free of charge!
Is there insurance coverage?
The Lyndon offers a resident insurance program that provides coverage for your belongings at a very minimal fee. You can add this program to your rent for added convenience or provide your own independent insurance coverage. Contact The Lyndon office for details.
What if I need to break my lease or don't return for the spring semester?
