Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?

You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.

What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Chapel Ridge has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rate?

Each resident at Chapel Ridge pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • In-unit laundry
  • High-speed internet
  • Water/sewer
  • Trash disposal
  • Community features – fitness center, tennis courts, etc.

What size are the apartments?

The spacious accommodations at Chapel Ridge range from 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments, with a private bedroom-bathroom suite for each resident.

Are the apartments furnished?

Yes, all apartments at Chapel Ridge have a furniture package that includes a full-size bed, nightstand, desk and chair, and stackable dresser drawers in each bedroom. The living area includes a sofa, end table, coffee table, and dining table and 4 chairs. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model apartment.

When do the contracts start and end?

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?

Within 7 days after a Housing Agreement is signed, each resident is required to do one of two things: provide a qualifying guarantor (often a parent), or pre-pay the final 2 installments.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Chapel Ridge also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at Chapel Ridge?

Your living costs at Chapel Ridge can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at Chapel Ridge. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is Chapel Ridge open to non-students?

Nearly all residents at Chapel Ridge are students at the University of North Carolina. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Nonetheless, Chapel Ridge is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes applications from non-students. Family members are welcome as well, subject to occupancy limits. Because of the need to match student roommates, non-students must apply together with enough roommates to fill the desired residence.

What kind of safety and security are provided?

Chapel Ridge has a monitored fire-sprinkler system, along with electronic locks plus individually locking bedroom doors. Management staff are also available 24×7 and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?

Chapel Ridge is a pet-friendly community, subject to limits on animals and breeds. The community is smoke-free in all indoor and adjacent spaces. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.

Can I park my vehicle at Chapel Ridge?

Chapel Ridge offers free on-site parking for residents and guests.

What other transportation options will I have?

Chapel Ridge is on three major bus lines, making it easy to travel around the city and to campus. Buses stop right outside the community at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Northfield Drive. The community also offers free on-site parking and plenty of bike storage.
