Helpful Leasing Resources for Students


Positive Credit Reporting

Building credit as a student is hard, and rent payments are not reported to credit agencies- until now! We have partnered with RentTrack to bring you the opportunity to build your credit, simply by paying your monthly rent on time. When you sign up for this valuable program, RentTrack will report positive data on your rent payments to the credit bureaus, helping you build your credit score. Essentially, you do nothing different but build good credit. It’s an easy win! Residents can sign up for RentTrack on their resident portal after they move-in.
