Graduate Housing Program

Rollins College maintains a limited number of apartments to provide housing accommodations for full-time, matriculated MBA students attending the Crummer Graduate School of Business. The primary function of the College real estate holding is to provide housing for Crummer full-time students, thus facilitating their involvement and accessibility to campus to easily participate in community events.

Renovated in 2009, the Crummer apartment complex is located within walking distance of campus at 273 W. New England Avenue and 238 W. Welborne Avenue, just three blocks north and one block west of the college. Each of the one and two-bedroom apartments come fully furnished with standard bedroom, private bathroom, living room, and eat-in kitchen. Note:  There is only one bathroom in the two-bedroom apartments.

Eligibility
Current, full-time, matriculated MBA students are eligible for placement in college-owned housing. Additionally, students enrolled in the Accelerated Management Program (AMP) will be eligible to participate in the Crummer graduate housing program during their first year of enrollment in the full-time MBA program.  Newly admitted students interested in living in the graduate apartments will need to submit their intent to enroll form and seat deposit to the Crummer Admissions office first, then complete the Housing Application. You will be contacted and notified of availability by the Residential Property Manager.  Returning students who occupied one of the units during their first year will need to submit an Intent to Renew Form at least 60 days from the date their lease is to expire in order to secure housing. Note: Intent to Renew form does not guarantee housing. If approved, the student will have to sign a new lease.

Terms of Occupancy
Rent is paid on a monthly basis subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Rollins College Rental Agreement. The rental agreement must be signed and the housing deposit must be paid prior to assuming occupancy. Students are not allowed to exceed the total number of occupants per unit. Specifically, the maximum number of occupants for a one bedroom and two bedroom apartments is two individuals. 

In addition, although the college is not responsible or liable for student off-campus events or behavior, it does reserve the right, in the interest of protecting students from harm, to take action in response to behavior off-campus that violates College expectations and when the college's interests as an academic community and property owner are clearly involved. This includes all policies outlined in the Student Handbook provided during the first day of orientation.

Priorities
Currently, priority in housing assignments will be given to newly admitted, full-time, degree-seeking MBA students relocating to the area. Exceptions to this priority designation may be made on a case by case basis as determined by the Program Director. An applicant's priority status may be adjusted in light of the applicant's particular circumstances, including, but not limited to, the suitability and timing of the applicant's current housing situation. Otherwise, the school will operate strictly by applying the waitlist method.

Deposit
Tenant agrees to pay a security deposit equal to one (1) month’s rent to be forfeited as liquidated damages in the event of default or breach of any party of this agreement.  The said payment will be refunded within 30 days of vacating if there is no damage beyond ordinary wear and depreciation and all rent and other charges are paid in full. Security deposits are not to be used as last month’s rent.

The Tenant agrees to pay for the cost of cleaning and repair or replacement as Owner is required to perform in an amount that is not unreasonable for the work or the items described therein if the premises are not found to be in a state of cleanliness equal to that at the time of first occupancy. Tenants who do not matriculate into the Early Advantage MBA program will automatically forfeit their deposit.

Rent Payment
Rent payments are due the first day of each month. Payments after the 5th will incur a late fee of $25.00. Payments in the form of a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check can be mailed and addressed to:  Rollins College, P.O. Box 917351, Orlando, FL 32891-7351.  Students can also drop off payments to either Rollins' Property Management locations at 422 W. Fairbanks Avenue, Suite 325, Winter Park, FL 32789 OR SunTrust Plaza, 400 Park Avenue South, Suite 205, Winter Park, FL 32789. An additional service charge of $25 will be added for insufficient funds checks.

Sublet Policy

Tenants who get locked out of their rental units must come to the Residential Property Management office during normal business hours to borrow a duplicate key. For an afterhours lockout emergency, phone the office and the answering service will assist.  Be prepared to show proper identification. There will be a $10 after hours lock out fee.

Termination of Occupancy
The Rollins College Residential Property Management Office must be notified at least sixty (60) calendar days in advance of the date in which the unit is to be vacated. Students who withdraw from the program must vacate their unit within thirty (30) calendar days following their change of status. However, if that is not the case, the College reserves the right to handle those situations on a case-by-case basis depending on the level of severity. An apartment is not officially vacated, nor will rent terminate until it is completely cleared of all personal property, and the key returned to the Residential Property Management Office. All property not belonging to the College which remains on the premises upon termination of the right to occupancy will be removed by the College and will, at the option of the College, be discarded.
