Frequently Asked Questions

General Leasing Questions

Can additional furniture be brought into the apartment?
You can add to the furniture in your apartment, but you can not take any of our furniture out of the apartment.
Can I pay my bill with a credit card? Is there an extra charge?
You can make payments online with any major credit card.  There are transaction fees that apply with the use of a credit card and it is a percentage based off the amount of the transaction.  You will be shown the convenience fee when making the payment and have to agree to the extra fee before the payment is processed.

Can I request an apartment or roommates?
You can request an apartment and roommate(s). We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but please understand there are NO GUARANTEES.
Can I use my financial aid?
You should review any documentation concerning grants, loans or scholarships with your parents and Lock Haven University's financial aid office. Click here to view important information regarding loans, scholarships and financial aid for the 2018-2019 academic year. Most loans that would cover on-campus housing should cover Evergreen Commons. It is entirely up to you to do the research. However, the first installment must be paid before you move in.  You may not wait to pay that installment until your aid comes in.  We will require a copy of your loan verification with your second installment in order to waive 1 late fee. You are not able to be more than 1 month behind. Once your loan refund is given to you, it is your responsibility to pay the rent that is due.  
Can sophomores live at Evergreen Commons?

Absolutely!  LHU has a two year on campus requirement.  We have been approved by LHU for sophomores and older to live here.

Yes. All leases are required to have a guarantor. If an approved guarantor cannot be obtained, EdR Management, Inc. will accept a security deposit of two (2) installments.  This security deposit will be refunded at the end of the lease term provided there are no outstanding balances on the resident's account.

There is ample parking available and students can receive a parking pass during move-in.
