What is a co-signer and why do I need one?

Talk to your parent(s) or guardian(s) about being a co-signer. As a student new to renting without strong credit, an income two-thirds the amount of monthly rent, or a rental history, you will be required to have a co-signer sign your lease as a person who will be held responsible if you fail to pay rent or the cost of damages.  Please note: The University will not and is not able to co-sign for any student.
