Leasing at The Courtyards and
South Campus Commons
Questions about Pull Ins
What is a Pull-in?

There are 2 types of Pull-ins in Commons and Courtyards leasing: 1) Those students who are named as Pull-ins by current SCC/CTY residents who are renewing their leases for the following years and 2) those students who are pulled in by other new applicants to SCC/CTY during the Open Leasing Process. See more information about those pull-in processes below.

How can I be pulled in by my friend who currently lives in South Campus Commons or the Courtyards?

Students who live in SCC or CTY and are renewing their lease for 2017-2018 have the ability to name eligible students of the same sex to be pulled in to their 2017-2018 apartment when completing their Intention to Return form between January 18th and February 8th.

In order to be eligible to be pulled in by a current SCC/CTY resident, you must complete the Leasing application by February 8th, 2017 at3:59PM and be either 1) a Spring 2017 SCC/CTY resident or 2) a Spring 2017 Residence Hall student (or Fall 2016 Residence Hall student studying abroad/Co-op for Spring 2017) who is a “rising junior” in the 3rd housing commitment group. Any student who does not fit one of those 2 criteria will not be eligible to be pulled in by a current SCC/CTY student.

If a student is eligible to be pulled in by a current SCC/CTY resident for 2017-2018, the current resident and the pull-in would attend a leasing meeting sometime between February 22nd and March 1st.

I am part of a group of Rising Junior Residence Hall students who want to live together next year. How can we lease together as a group?

Each person in your group must complete the 17-18 Commons/Courtyards Leasing application by the March 9th deadline. If everyone in your group is eligible, each person will receive an email prior to the end of the day on March 17th informing you of your individual leasing number and appointment time. Compare your numbers and times to determine who receives the best (lowest) leasing number and earliest leasing appointment time. Each member of your group (up to 4 people) will go to that person’s Open Leasing appointment—once that person’s leasing number is called, if there is an apartment available in SCC or CTY that has the number of vacancies of your group size, that person can select that space and pull in the other members of your group to the other bedrooms within that unit.

If there are no apartments available to accommodate your group size (i.e- you are a group of 4 and there are no completely empty 4 bedroom units remaining), then if you desire to still live in SCC or CTY, you would need to split into smaller groups (i.e- there is an apartment with 2 vacancies, so the person with the best leasing appointment could pull in 1 person to that unit with them. The remaining group members would need to attend the next best leasing appointment assigned to one of the remaining group members.)

I am a Rising Junior Residence Hall student. Can I lease an apartment in South Campus Commons or the Courtyards and pull in a friend who is of a different sex than I am?

No. Any students who wish to live in apartment in South Campus Commons or the Courtyards with students of a different sex than the sex listed in their official University records should apply for Mixed Gender Apartment Living in South Campus Commons and the Courtyards. The pull-in process and Open Leasing are limited to single gender units only.

I am a rising junior residence hall student. Can I lease an apartment at South Campus Commons or the Courtyards and pull-in a rising fourth-year student/rising senior?

No. The only students eligible to be pulled in are current residence hall students in the 3rd Commitment Group (rising third-year students/riding juniors) who are in good standing with the University. If you want to lease with a group of friends who are in lower priority groups for SCC and CTY, you need to attend the leasing appointment of the person in the lowest/worst priority group. If you want to live with a rising senior who lives on campus, that person is in the second priority group for SCC/CTY leasing, after all rising juniors. As a rising junior, you would need to give up your earlier leasing appointment time and attend the later leasing appointment time of your rising senior friend, when fewer or no spaces may be remaining.

I am a Rising Junior residence hall student. Can I lease an apartment at South Campus Commons or the Courtyards and pull-in an off campus student?

No. The only students eligible to be pulled in are current residence hall students in the 3rd Commitment Group (rising third-year students) who are in good standing with the University. If you want to lease with a group of friends who are in lower priority groups for SCC and CTY, you need to attend the leasing appointment of the person in the lowest/worst priority group. If you want to live with n off campus student, that person is in the last priority group for SCC/CTY leasing, after all on campus rising juniors, rising seniors and rising sophomores. As an on campus rising junior, you would need to give up your earlier leasing appointment time and attend the later leasing appointment time of your off campus friend, when fewer or no spaces may be remaining.

I am an off campus student. Can I be pulled-in by a South Campus Commons or Courtyards resident?

No. The only students eligible to be pulled in are current residence hall students in the 3rd Commitment Group (rising third-year students) who are in good standing with the University. If you want to live with students who live on campus (who would have earlier/better leasing numbers and appointments than yours), they would need to skip their own earlier leasing appointments and attend your later leasing appointment and select from the spaces available (if any).

I have a friend who lives in South Campus Commons or the Courtyards who is graduating in Spring 2017. Can they pull me in to their apartment for next year?

No. Current SCC/CTY students who will not be students in the 2016-2017 lease year are not eligible to renew their leases in SCC/CTY, so they are not eligible to name any students as pull ins or transfer their lease to another student for the following year.

If I re-lease from someone in South Campus Commons or the Courtyards for Summer 2017, can I just stay in that apartment for the 17-18 year?

No. The re-leasing process for current SCC/CTY residents who want to re-lease the summer portion of their 2016-2017 lease will not begin until mid-to-late April, after the leasing process for 2016-2017 has already concluded. If you re-lease for Summer 2017 from a current SCC/CTY resident, someone else will already have signed a lease for that space for the 2017-2018 lease year.
