What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at The Lodges has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

Each resident at The Lodges at West Edge pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • In-unit laundry
  • High-speed internet
  • Front-door trash pickup (fee required)
  • Community features – business center, game room, etc.

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?

Each resident must pay an administrative fee for each contract year. This fee is reduced significantly if the resident provides a qualifying guarantor (often a parent) for their financial obligations under Housing Agreement.

The Lodges at West Edge also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at The Lodges?

Your living costs at The Lodges can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at The Lodges. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is The Lodges at West Edge open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at The Lodges at West Edge are students at UNH and the per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Residents/families with children are welcome. There is no extra cost for minor children in the care of adult residents, other than regular charges for each bedroom space selected by the resident. A minor occupying a bedroom space rented by a parent, guardian or person with legal custody is not considered a breach of the Housing Agreement or a violation of the rules. The Lodges is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes applications from non-students. In order to match student roommates in shared apartments, we will request roommate consent for any non-student occupants.

What kind of safety and security are provided?
