Your rental payment will include
rent, cable television, high speed internet, water, sewer, and
trash. The only utility we do not cover is electricity. The units
at the Edge are all electric, there is no gas. The Edge will
pay the electric company directly, and residents will reimburse the
property. So you do not have to set up any utilities in your own
name! If you have roommates, the bills are divided evenly, so
you do not have to worry about your roommate paying you for the
utilities since every resident has their own account with the

application fee that is paid at the time of lease signing. All fees
must be paid prior move in time.

Individual leasing means each
resident will sign their own lease agreement at Edge Union Station
for the one, two, and four bedroom units. If one of your roommates
moves out of the property for any reason, you do not have to worry
about having to cover their portion of rent. Each resident will
qualify accordingly and have their own lease agreement. We do allow
two people to sign a lease for a one bedroom apartment.
Edge Union Station will furnish all
apartments at the property. The living room area will include
a sofa, coffee table, end table, dining table and chairs, and
media center with 50” SMART TV. The bedrooms will include the
full-size extra long mattress and bed frame, nightstand, and
dressers that can be placed under the bed or stacked.

matching service. We will place you with the best possible roommate
based upon your roommate matching profile. If you sign for a One
Bedroom floor plan you do not need to complete the roommate
matching section of the application. If you are signing for a two
bedroom or four bedroom apartments we would need the roommate

What is a
Since most residents are full-time
students, a guarantor is needed to get your lease agreement
approved. A guarantor can be one of your parents, aunt, uncle,
older sibling, etc. All residents go through a background screening
and guarantors go through a credit check. The income requirement
for a guarantor is three times the monthly rental amount. Your
guarantor is not needed in person to sign your lease, we can send
the paperwork to guarantors electronically. Not everyone will need
a guarantor, but some will if they do not have the income on their
own to qualify.
Can I sign
a lease without a guarantor?
Yes, you can sign a lease agreement
without a guarantor. If you plan to qualify on your own, you have
to make and document that you earn two times the monthly rental
amount per month. You will also have to pass the background and
credit check based upon our rental criteria. There are a few ways
someone can qualify to live at the Edge Union Station. We take
proof of bank statements, trust funds, income documentation, and
I-20 forms for International students.

Edge Union Station does not have a
clause in the lease agreement that allows residents or future
residents with an approved lease agreement to cancel the lease. If
for any reason you need to get out of your lease agreement, you can
relet your apartment/bed space. The unassisted relet fee is $200
and you are responsible for finding the person to take over your
lease. The person MUST be approved before the old resident is
released from the lease agreement. We also offer an assisted relet
which is 85% of one month’s rent. The 85% of one month’s rent must
be paid in advance before we can assist the resident with finding
someone to take over the contract.
