Moving off campus is a rite of passage for most students – another step on their road to independence. At 42 North, our goal is to make that transition as easy as possible for you and your student.

Professional Management and Maintenance

42 North offers professional on-site management and 24-hour emergency maintenance. Many of our staff live and work on site, and annually participate in extensive customer service training to make your student's living experience a memorable one. Students who need assistance can meet with team members in the office, or fill out work request forms online for added convenience. 

Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility

At our community, we offer individual leases by the bedroom lease, not the unit. You and your student are only responsible for paying your rent, even if a roommate graduates or transfers.

As a part of our lease agreement, we require each student to have a Guarantor --- a person 25 years of age or older who is a resident of the U.S. that will vouch for the financial responsibility of the lease. If a Guarantor is not available, we have partnered with LEAP who can co-sign your lease. 


Leap is your Guarantor when you need one. For a small one time fee, they will countersign your lease and give you the financial backing as a normal guarantor would.. 

Rent Plus

Now your student can start building credit simply by paying rent on time!
Rent Plus enables residents to build their credit with no additional lines of credit, no loans, no cards, and no high-interest rates. Signing up is simple. Contact 42 North's office to learn more about how your student can join the growing number of renters who are putting their hard-earned money to work for them.

All-Inclusive Living

Moving your son or daughter out on their own can be expensive. At 42 North, we support families with many student-friendly amenities that are free and included in the overall rental installment to help ease the financial burden. There is no additional charge for Internet, water, cable, furniture, computer lab, fitness center and monthly social events. 

Residential Life

42 North is a social community with a vibrant residential life program focused on social, physical, charitable and educational activities (and many free food events, too!). Residents are active participants in a variety of monthly resident events hosted by our team of dedicated community assistants and managers. Charitable activities have included relay teams to support Relay for Life, toy and food drives, and community clean ups. Educational activities could include everything from skin cancer awareness to tutoring support. And 42 North regularly offers popular social events such as free pizza Fridays, breakfast on the go, and other fun ways to meet new friends and create lasting college memories.

Community Assistants

Every year, many students view for the opportunity to become a 42 North Community Assistant (CA). CAs are assigned to groups of residents and offer peer guidance and support during a student’s transition to off-campus housing. 

42 North hires approximately 5 CAs a year who are paid at an hourly rate. The CA position provides students with valuable resume-building experience through their work as a community leader, problem-solver, event planner, sales associate, and friend.
