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 is still responsible to pay the remainder
of the lease agreement unless they can find someone to sublease
What deposits are required?
A deposit in the amount of two months’ rent is required if a
resident cannot provide an approved guarantor in order to reserve
the apartment. This deposit can be waived if an approved guarantor
is provided. If he/she 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. A guarantor must meet the
following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have good credit
standing with a 600+ credit score, and gross 3 times the rental
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 doesn’t not promote any specific insurance
coverage company to use.
What does all-inclusive living
Each lease agreement will include rental of a bedroom in each
apartment that has the option of being fully furnished with a
full-size bed, desk, chair, dresser and nightstand. The
living/common area that will be shared by other bedrooms in the
apartment will include a sofa, coffee table, end table, 32” TV, and
dining room furniture. All appliances will be provided as well,
including full-size washer and dryer. Cable and wireless internet
are included as well. The utilities in the apartment are processed
by direct bill. The utilities will be put in the Polo Club’s name
and will be divided by how many people are in the unit for the
utility cycle. A $75 one time utility set up fee will be paid upon
move in by each resident. Each roommate will be responsible for
only their portion of rent and exceeded utilities.
What type of apartments are

Can my child pick their roommate?
It is not necessary to lease the apartment with other roommates.
However, we are more than willing to accommodate those that already
have roommates in mind. Roommate matching forms will be completed
at the time of application. Our roommate-matching survey is used to
best place each resident with another person that has the same
interests based on his/her answers provided.
Do you allow co-ed apartments?
Our policy is to only place residents with those of the same sex,
unless the apartment is fully leased with individuals who have a
written agreement of the living situation they prefer.
Do you allow non-students?
Anyone who applies to live at Polo Club Apartments and is approved
through our background check, can live here.
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. Parking is first come, first served at Polo Club. There is
visitor parking for residents’ guests; however, there are limited
spaces. Parking passes are available for any parents and

the resident’s responsibility to lock up his/her personal
