Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the rent?

The rent includes internet, cable with SEC channels, trash, sewer and water. We also provide electricity which is billed back to each resident so you can avoid the hassle of setting up an account and the headache of collecting money from your roommates.

Will my apartment come furnished?

Yes! And it’s not your typical dorm furniture. Your apartment will come sleekly styled with furnishings that are modern yet functional, and elegant with an industrial twist.

What’s an individual lease?

An Individual lease means you are only responsible for your portion of rent. Although you may have roommates that share the common areas of your apartment, you are not financially responsible for them and their names are not on your lease.

Do I need someone to co-sign my lease?

Only the person living in the unit needs to sign the lease; however, if you do not meet the qualifications within the application, you will need a guarantor to sign a Guaranty Form.

What’s a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who guarantees timely payment on the lease. In the case of student living, a guarantor is usually a parent or legal guardian. We require a guarantor only when the person living in the unit is unable to meet application qualifications.

Is there an application fee and/or security deposit?

There is a $50 application fee which covers a background check on the resident and credit check on the guarantor. We also require a one-time non-refundable redecoration fee for all new residents. Contact our leasing office to learn more about pricing and deposits.

Do you allow pets?

Pets are allowed at Uncommon Athens. Please contact the leasing office for details, restrictions, and associated costs.

Do you offer roommate matching?

Yes! If you don’t have roommates in mind (or enough to fill the units in the apartment of your choice) but want to reserve your spot to live at Uncommon before it’s too late, we’ve got you covered. We offer a roommate matching program that gives you the freedom and control to determine who you’ll live with.

What kind of security is at Uncommon?

Safety at Uncommon is our utmost concern, and we provide more security features than you may find anywhere else.  24 hour on-site staff, surveillance cameras in all common areas, and hi-tech electronic keycard access throughout.

But, I can have guests right?

Of course! Our smartphone app will allow you to validate approved guests with ease.

Is there parking?

Absolutely. Uncommon has underground, secure parking. Spaces are leased on a first come, first serve basis, so don’t wait to contact our leasing office for availability and pricing.

Can anyone access the amenities?
