It is true that our units are in high demand and it is smart to sign your lease early. We do, however, have units that come available at different times throughout the year. If you are looking for a unit that is open right now, we encourage you to check the listings on our website. We hope you will also contact our staff members for more information.
What do I do when I find unit I am interested in renting?
The first thing to do is to contact our leasing agents. We will make an appointment with you so that you can see the rental unit in person. We will answer your questions and provide you with information on the Athens Ohio apartment.
Do you allow subleasing?

What do I need to do if my rental will not be occupied during winter break?

Are pets allowed?
It depends on the unit you want to rent. Pets are welcome in some of our rentals, but are not allowed in others due to a variety of factors. Our property listings will tell you if pets are allowed, and you can also ask our leasing agents for more information
