What does rent by bed mean and can I have my own bedroom?
Victory at MSU rents by individual bed space which means each resident is only responsible for their own monthly rental installment. Each resident has their own bedroom and shares common area living space with their roommates.
What size are the beds?
All beds are full sized.
Do you find roommates for me?
Residents are welcome to bring their own roommates to live with for the year. If you do not have roommates in mind, we can assist in finding roommates for you using our Roommate Matching System. We will do our best to find a good match and will coordinate communication between all parties.
What if my roommate and I don’t get along?
We do our best to match roommates based on the information provided on your matching profile sheet. We encourage residents to be honest and detailed when filling this out to foster the highest chance of success. We expect to be 100% occupied each year; thus, leaving little room for transferring units. We encourage all residents to communicate, be respectful and work towards a common ground. Should you need additional assistance, our professional management team is happy to help mediate and is trained on how to do so.
What is the Amenity Fee?
To assist with a smooth living experience we have established a fee that, among other things, allows DirecTV, Wi-FI and all other utilities to be charged to the landlord releasing residents from the hassle and responsibility.

Is there laundry?

How can I pay my rent?
Online portal payments provide a quick, automatic and easy way to pay your rent and fees monthly. If you prefer to pay by check, money order or cashiers check, there is a drop box, located outside of Victory at Burcham Woods for easy drop.
How long is the lease?

Do I need to move out at the end of the school year?
Opportunity for early renewal will be provided during the fall. If you’d like to renew for the following year, you may do so at that time. You may choose to leave for the summer months, but the resident is responsible for a 12-installment lease.
