What should I know before my
son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?
A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of
the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through
the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the
lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the
remainder of the lease agreement or agreed upon amount.
What deposits are required?
The deposits are either a full month’s rent or if self-qualified we
reduce the deposit to $250(Tranquility/Serenity) or $350(Harmony).
Note: If resident fails to make payments on the apartment, the
guarantor will be responsible to provide those payments. Deposits
will be refunded after final inspections are completed with no
damages to apartment or furnishings.
Is renters insurance required?
No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can
purchase to protect your personal property as the
management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants.
Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen
could be covered. TCC does not promote any specific insurance
coverage company to use.
What type of apartments are
Hidden Village offers 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans. With three
different options to choose from, ask your leasing specialist which

in your new apartment home.

Can my child pick their roommate?
Our leases pertain to the entire apartment and not per bedroom.
Therefore, residents pick their roommates, although a roommate is
not necessary. Keep in mind that all persons on the lease are
individually and jointly responsible for any damages to the
apartment and the charges that may result thereafter.
Do you allow co-ed apartments?
Yes, co-ed apartments are allowed.
Do you allow non-students?
Yes, if a new resident does not attend school and meets all our
approval criteria, he/she can also live at Hidden Village.
What if my child doesn’t get along
with his/her new roommates?
We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries
immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a
long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living
together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues
within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If
they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist
with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.
Do I have to pay for parking?
No. Hidden Village offers open parking. Residents and their guests
are allowed to park in any of the spots on property.
