Faculty Security and Room Deposit

A security deposit equal to one month's rent is required before tenants move in. After you vacate your apartment it will be inspected for damages beyond normal wear and tear. The cost of repairing any such damages or replacing any missing appliances or furniture will be deducted from your security deposit. A bank holds security deposits and refunds take up to 60 days to process.
