When will I know my apartment assignment?

TENTATIVE apartment assignments are e-mailed out two weeks prior to the semester start date. However, your FINAL apartment assignment will be given to you when you move in. Last minute changes do happen, so please do not mail items to yourself or move into your apartment before checking in.

Check-in Procedures:

Check-in begins at 8 am on the first day of the contract. (For check-in dates, please refer to the dates on your contract). If you arrive after office hours, you may contact one of the Manager’s Assistants to let you into your apartment for the night. The M.A.’s numbers will be posted on the office door. Please check in with us the next day!

When is my rent due?

Rent is due in full when you check in. Cash, check, and money order are accepted in the manager’s office. Alternatively, you can pay on the website with card (Click on “Current Residents” then “Make Payments”) but understand all online payments are subject to an additional 4% handling charge.

If you need to set up a payment plan, the first of three payments is due at check-ins. We’ll set-up the plan at this time as your plan is dependent on your contract. The first payment varies for all of our tenants, but the last two payments are always $365 each.

If you need to pay with financial aid, you will fill out a form of agreement to pay rent once you’ve received this aid. In order to do so, we will need proof of anticipated aid. You can do so by printing off a copy of your Financial Aid Awards under the “Finances” tab on your my.byui.edu page. Upon receiving the aid, you must come to the office to pay or pay online. We cannot access this money for you. For questions regarding your Financial Aid, please contact the BYU-I Financial Aid Office.

Ward Information:

You can find out your student ward and stake information by going to: http://web.byui.edu/WardsAndStakes/UnitInfo.

Visitor Parking:

We have two visitor parking spots in the front parking lot. Visitor parking is limited to the BYU-I regulations for visitor’s hours which are between noon and curfew. Residents can park in those spots from curfew until noon. Occasionally we will have extra parking passes which allows us to offer visitor passes. Please check with the manager to see if and when they are available.

What can I use to hang decorations in my apartment?

We do allow you to use pins, tacks, or small nails to hang decorations in your apartment. We encourage you to decorate your apartment with uplifting decorations that allow the Spirit to reside in your apartment. We do not allow any double-sided tape (3M or Command tape, etc) in the apartments. It damages the walls and is very hard and time-consuming to fix.

How do I reserve the lounge?

The lounge can be reserved by going to the “current residents” tab on our website. Submit your request and the manager will approve/post your reservation to the calendar.

What if I get locked out of my apartment?

If you get locked out of your apartment, please do not remove the screen! Contact one of the Managers (info is on the office door) to unlock your apartment for you.

Receiving Mail:

Your address while living at Royal Crest Apartments is:

340 S 1st W Apt # _____
Rexburg, ID 83440

The mailboxes are located on the first floor next to apartment #101.  Make sure your family and friends put your apartment number on anything they send you. If you receive mail for someone not in your apartment, just put it back into the outgoing mail slot. When you move (even temporarily) you need to fill out a change of address form so your mail can be forwarded to you. Packages coming through UPS or FEDEX will be brought to your door as long as there is an apartment number on the package.

When are checkouts?

Checkouts are scheduled when you sign your contract. Your contract will always end at 6:00 p.m. on the contract end date. This means you must be out by this time or will face charges of a minimum of $30. You are not required to stay until the end, but can leave according to your school and travel plans.

For students who have a future contract with us, we offer storage options. We do not allow storage for students who do not have future contracts with us.

Students not returning to Royal Crest Apartments for a future semester will receive their security deposits back via mail. In order to receive this, tenants need to leave a self-addressed, stamped envelope. After full evaluation and completion of checkouts, Management mails the deposits to the addresses provided. Deposits are mailed within 30 days of the contract end date.

White Glove Procedures:

White Glove is conducted at the end of the semester in connection with checkouts. All students are required to participate in White Glove or will face charges of $30/hour. These charges will be added to the next semester’s rent, if the student is returning, or will be deducted from his security deposit, if the student is not returning.

White Glove assignments are according to apartment sign-ups. A sign-up form will be issued to each apartment near the end of the semester. Whatever job each tenant signs up for is the job he will be held responsible for during White Glove evaluation.

Each apartment will receive a White Glove packet with details on how to clean each item for his job specifically. Each tenant is only responsible for the apartment job he signed up for as well as his bedroom job (dependent on which bed was his).

When will I receive my deposit return?

Your deposit will be sent to you 30 days after the end of the contract. They will be sent in the self-addressed, stamped envelope you provided during checkouts, so make sure you provide the correct address on your envelope.
