Graduate and Family Housing
Your first rent payment is due before you move into your apartment. This payment is calculated based on the day of the month you move in. If you move in within the first five days on the month, you will pay a prorated amount based on a 30 day month. If you move-in on the sixth day of the month or later, you will pay a prorated amount for the first month, plus the entire second month's rent.
Moving in Late
You may move in at a later date than your scheduled move-in date as long as our office is open. This will not change your first bill. You must pay from the first date listed on your contract.
Electricity and Gas Payment
Electricity is billed monthly for the amount used in the previous month. Electricity is not covered in the rental rate, but is an existing service. Residents do not need to contract separately for electricity service.
Gas service is used in buildings that have not been renovated in Corry Village for cooking and heating. This service does require a deposit and turn on fee and also has a monthly bill and it is not billed by Housing and Residence Life.
