What should I know before my
son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?
A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of
the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through
the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the
lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the
remainder of the lease agreement.
What deposits are required?
A deposit could range from ½ months’ rent to two full months’ rent
in order to reserve the apartment. If approved with guarantor (with
approved credit), there will be a $250-$350 security deposit. If
there are failures to provide payments on the apartment, the
guarantor will be responsible to provide those payments. Deposits
will be refunded after final inspections are completed with no
damages to apartment or furnishings. A guarantor must meet the
following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have good credit
standing with a 550+ credit score (RV score would work as well),
and gross 3.5 times the rental amount monthly. The lease fee for
all applicants is $200.
Is renters insurance required?
No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can
purchase to protect your personal property as the
management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants.
Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen
could be covered. TCC does not promote any specific insurance
coverage company to use.

start date. Online rental payments through the Resident Portal can

professional would be happy to discuss the details if you need more
Can my child pick their roommate?
It is not necessary to lease the apartment with other roommates.
However, we are more than willing to accommodate those that already
have roommates in mind applying with your child.
Do you allow non-students?
Yes, if a new resident does not attend school and meets all our
approval criteria, he/she can also live at Barrington Apartments.
What if my child doesn’t get along
with his/her new roommates?
We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries
immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a
long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living
together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues
within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If
they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist
with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.
Do I have to pay for parking?
No. Parking is first come, first served.
