A few reminders…

-Make sure we have phone numbers and email addresses for everyone living at your apartment.

-If your lease requires it, you must have the utility accounts set up in your name when you pick up keys – or they may be disconnected.

Rent is due on the 1st of each month. The drop boxes at each building are emptied by 8am on the 2nd of each month. Please bring late rent to the office with the late payment fee – checks will not be collected from the boxes if deposited after the 2nd.

Please abide by all parking rules – or you may be towed. Do not park in front of dumpsters or in the way of traffic. Please do not park in your neighbor’s spot or allow guests to do so. If you are having problems and need to have someone towed from your spot call the Iowa City Police Department routine business line at: 319-356-5275. They require written authorization to tow – so be sure to have your lease with you when they arrive.
