Frequently asked questions

I am new to off-campus housing. Can you tell me a little about it?

The full college experience is available just minutes away from the University of South Florida. ULake Apartments has undergone a multimillion dollar renovation but we are still committed to offering the most value for our students by meeting various housing needs with flexible leasing options and a wide array of amenities. Our community is situated on 22 acres and features a gorgeous 5-acre lake. With furnished and unfurnished apartments available, your individual liability lease is completely customizable to meet your needs as well as give you access to all of our community areas such as our 24-hour fitness facility, three salt water pools, a sand volley ball court, two tennis courts, and a pet park. We have a friendly on-site team, monthly resident events, and so much more!

Do you have a bus stop and how often does it run?

I do not have any roommates in mind. Do you offer roommate matching?

We encourage all of our residents to report any suspicious activity to them and as always dial 911 for emergencies.

How do I pay the rent?

Rent is due on the 1st day of each month. We have an easy online payment system that allows you to pay any time of the day.

Do you provide on-site maintenance? How do we report any maintenance related issues?

Yes, we do have on-site maintenance. Our online Resident Portal makes it easy to submit work requests online directly to our office team. Our maintenance team is great at quickly responding to our residents’ needs! You will know when your work is completed via email by receiving a satisfaction survey. We love to hear the opinions of our residents so that we can continually improve our services.

I am ready to live here! What is the first step?

Great! We look forward to having you! We ask that the resident fills out an online application. It only takes 15-20 minutes! If you are signing with a guarantor, they may also complete their portion of the application at the same time. It’s that easy!
