    General Leasing Questions

  • +Can additional furniture be brought into the apartment?

    You may bring additional furniture into your apartment; however, you shall not remove our furniture, fixtures, and/or furnishings from the apartment for any purpose.
  • +Can I pay my bill with a credit card? Is there an extra charge?

    Current residents can pay any bill with credit (VISA, MasterCard & Discover), check or money order. There is a 2.5% service fee for electronic payments, but that service fee is waived if payment is made by bank draft.
  • +Can I request a specific floor plan and/or roommates?

    Yes. You will complete an application with specific floor plan preferences and requested roommates, if applicable. We work to accommodate as many preferences as possible; please keep in mind that requests are NOT a guarantee of placement.
  • +Do I have to have a meal plan?

    No, you do not have to have a meal plan while living at University Park. If you decide to purchase a meal plan, we encourage you to opt for one of the Commuter Meal Plans or one with Dining Dollars.
  • +Do I need to bring my own utensils and bedding?

    Yes! Some suggested items to bring with you: Flatware and drink ware (plates, bowls, cups, etc.), kitchen utensils and silverware, cookware, bathroom rug, shower curtain, towels, bed sheets, comforter, mattress pad, curtains and tension/spring rods (mini-blinds already installed), and decorations (posters, picture frames, etc.). We send a packing list in mid-July to all incoming residents.
  • +What is an Installment?

    The contract is a set amount with set move-in and move-out dates. For a contract that ends in May, the contract amount is broken into 10-installments, 10 even payments to equal the full contract amount. For a contract that ends in July, the contract amount is broken into 12-installments, 12 even payments to equal the full contract amount. Residents can also make the choice to pay a semester at a time. All rates (full contract amount, semester rate and 10/12 installment amount) are included in the signed contract. The May-ending contract has a higher rate to account for the unit being unoccupied in the summer months.
  • +Can I use my financial aid?

    Yes! You can use your financial aid to cover your rent at University Park. It is your responsibility to submit rent payments to us on time. With proper documentation, we will allow you to defer rent payments until you receive your refund/loan check. Please be prepared to pay 1-2 rent installments "out of pocket." Information on this process is emailed in mid-July to all incoming residents.
  • +How are rooms assigned?

    Residents who already have preferred roommates can request them on the application when they apply. Residents can also send an email to universitypark@cocm.com to request a roommate. In the event that potential roommates discover that they are no longer compatible, they can request a different roommate by submitting an email to universitypark@cocm.com. We will do our best to accommodate any change request. All requests will be considered but are not guaranteed. To provide sufficient time and the greatest opportunity for residents to find the perfect roommate, they should apply and sign a license agreement as early as possible. Bedrooms inside of a unit are assigned randomly.
  • +How close to campus are you?

    University Park is conveniently located on the east end of campus.
  • +How do I obtain a temporary parking permit?

    If your car is in the shop or you switched vehicles temporarily, stop by the business office Monday - Friday between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. You MUST have proof that the vehicle is not in your possession (i.e. auto shop receipt, work order.)
  • +How does the waitlist work?

    Once we fill all of our bedrooms on property, we start a wait list. Anyone who submits an application is added to the wait list for the floor plan of his/her choice and will then be contacted by the leasing office if there have been enough cancellations to write a license agreement.
  • +How many people live there?

    We have 252 units and approximately 900 beds.
  • +If I am over 21 do I need a guarantor?

    Yes. Each student living at University Park is required to have guarantor. Guarantors are generally a parent, guardian or another individual over the age of 25 years old, who agrees to be legally responsible, along with you, for this license.
  • +If I pay in full, do I get a discount?

    University Park Salisbury does not offer discounts for rent paid in full. However, prepayment gives you the peace of mind knowing that your account is in good standing at all times!
  • +Is parking available?

    We have ample, free parking on-site for all University Park residents. All lot parking is free and is first come, first serve for University Park residents. Residents are required to register for a parking permit to identify resident vehicles. Information on this process is emailed in August to all incoming residents. Guests must park in the Visitor Lot, located near the volleyball court.
  • +What do I need to hook up my computer to the internet?

    All UP buildings have wireless connections for internet. You will need your student username and password to connect to wireless services.
  • +What if I need to cancel my license agreement?

    If you need to cancel your license agreement, the first step would be to contact the leasing office and complete a Request for Cancellation Form. The student withdrawing from his/her license agreement is responsible for finding a replacement resident. If there’s a waitlist, we may be able to assist with this process.
  • +What is the cost?

    Rates are according to floor plan and range from $710 - $815. All utilities, wi-fi and streaming cable services are included in this rate. We also have a one-time Amenities Fee of $250, which is due with the return of a signed license agreement.
  • +What size are the beds?

    In the 4x2 units, the beds are twin-XL (39" x 80"). In the 4x4, 2x2 and 2x1 units, the beds are full-XL size (53" X 80").
  • +What types of license agreements are available?

    University Park offers May-ending and July-ending license agreements starting in the fall semester, and May-ending and July-ending license agreements starting in the spring semester. Please be advised that May-ending license agreements are only available to a small percentage of our residents. The majority of our residents are in a license agreement through July.

  • +Will you send me a bill for each installment?

    We do not send any invoices, but for your convenience, you can use our online resident portal to check your balance at any time. Payment is due on the 1st of every month beginning August 1 (as stated in license agreement). Late fees are charged after 10:00 AM on the 3rd day of the month.

    Renewal Questions

  • +Can I request different roommates?

    We want you to be comfortable here, and we will do everything we can to accommodate your roommate requests.
  • +What is a "renewal?"

    Are you loving it here and can't imagine leaving at the end of your license agreement? By signing a renewal contract, you get to extend your stay in our community! The renewal process begins in November before the next academic year is to begin.
  • +If I renew, do I have to move out then move back in?

    When you renew and choose to stay in your current spot, no moving is required (if you currently have a July-ending contract)!
  • +If I renew, will my guarantor have to sign again?

    Yes~ a new contract is signed by both you and your Guarantor for each year, indicating new contract dates and renewal rates.
  • +I'm graduating in December, can I still renew?

    Contact the office or email universitypark@cocm.com for details on the options available to you.

    Renewing now will provide the most benefit to you. By signing early, you will secure your space for next year and take advantage of the best pricing available.
  • +How do I renew?

    We begin the renewal process in November. Be on the lookout for a Renewal Survey where you indicate your preferences (unit type, end-date and roommate requests). We will then send you a matching contract to sign electronically (along with your Guarantor). It's that easy!
  • +When do I start paying the new rent amount?

    On the first day of your new license agreement.
