Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Benefits Of Living In Our Champaign Student Housing?

At The Academy Campustown, residents can enjoy the perks of off campus living while still being conveniently close to campus. Students can choose from a myriad of floor plans and can find the perfect community that fits their needs. Our spacious floor plans are all fully furnished and offer a wide variety of conveniences, such as an in-unit washer and dryer, private bedrooms and bathrooms, hardwood style flooring, smart TVs, and much more. Residents of our communities also gain access to exclusive amenities, such as an outdoor lounge with BBQ grills, coffee bar and clubroom, fitness center, individual and group study rooms, and many more student-focused amenities. When you call our community home, you’re put in a premier location conveniently close to shopping, dining, entertainment, and campus.

What Is An Individual Housing Contract?

Different from other student housing communities in Champaign, we offer residents individual housing contracts. This means students are only responsible for their own monthly installment payments and not those of their roommates if they choose to live with other residents. Get in touch with us to learn more about individual housing contracts.

How Long Is The Housing Contract?

We want to make everything as easy as possible for residents. That’s why we offer individual housing contracts that span 12 months.

Do I Require A Guarantor?

Yes. All of our residents must have guarantors for their individual housing contracts in order to make sure all financial obligations can be met. Potential guarantors must meet minimum credit and income requirements, and sign the guarantor addendum to each contract. Contact our leasing office to learn more about guarantor requirements.

How Do I Pay My Monthly Installments?

Residents can pay their monthly installments either online, using our easy resident portal, or drop off a check in-person at our leasing office. For ultimate convenience, residents can also set up automatic payments through our portal so they never miss a payment.

Are Roommate Matching Services Available?

Yes! We offer complimentary roommate-matching services for students. The process is simple — residents fill out a detailed questionnaire asking about their lifestyle preferences, hobbies, and habits, and our team matches them with another resident whose answers align. Contact us for more information about our roommate matching services or to start on your questionnaire.

Does The Academy Campustown Have On-Site Staff?

Yes! We want to make sure our residents are completely taken care of. To make their lives easier, we employ a well-qualified team of management and maintenance professionals on-site. We even have a 24/7 maintenance staff available in case of an emergency.
