No, each person can sign a lease at their own convenience. That said, do not wait too long to sign for the apartment and bedroom you want. There is always a chance that someone could sign for any vacant apartment and bedroom.
Yes, we do allow co-ed living. If residents are planning to live in a co-ed arrangement then each person is required to complete the "Opposite Gender Form" during their lease signing appointment.
A Guaranty of Lease is required for every lease. This form is equivalent to a co-signer. Each resident must have someone (usually a parent or guardian) complete and sign the form as well as have it notarized. We will mail this form to your Guarantor on the day you sign your lease. This form is due within 15 days after they receive it.
Millikin provides 2 payment plan options:
1. Pay the total amount due by July or January depending on what lease you signed.
2. Pay in 4 monthly installments (flexible payment plan).
Contact Student Financial Services at (217)424-6317 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will see rent appear on your MU account starting July 1st for the Fall semester and again January 1st for the Spring semester.
Yes, we do offer roommate matching. The Woods will attempt to match roommates based on common interests, extra curricular activies and current major.
Regardless of your academic status you are still legally responsible for payments on your lease once you have signed your lease.
Subleasing is allowed. A $125 subleasing fee must be paid and the new roommate needs to provide us with a Guaranty of Lease. Your balance must be at $0 in order to sublease. Subleasing your apartment does not take you off the lease completely. Please refer to the Sublease Packet and Procedure under the Forms tab. If you would like to post your apartment for subleasing, you may do so under the Resources tab.
