Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find frequently asked questions about Uncommon student apartments located on The Square in Oxford, MS. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered on this page, feel free to contact our leasing office.

What does the rent include?

The rent not only covers the apartment itself, but trash, sewer, water, internet and a robust cable package with the SEC Network. We also provide electricity which is billed back to each resident so you can avoid the hassle of setting up an account and the headache of gathering money from your roommates. Living in an Uncommon apartment feels less like your typical student housing experience and more like a five star hotel stay.

Is my apartment furnished?

Yes! Your apartment is fully furnished with stylish, modern furniture that is functional, comfortable, and elegant. We’re also the only student housing option in Oxford that provides living necessities like dishes, pots and pans, and other housewares. At Uncommon, we take the work out of living in a student apartment.

How does the "individual lease" work?

In a common roommate situation, the entire house is responsible for providing one check to the landlord. At Uncommon Oxford apartments, each person is responsible for their own payment. This means if one resident pays rent late or gets behind in payments, it will not affect you or your other roommates.

Do I need a co-signer?

Only residents of the Oxford apartment need to sign the lease. However, if you don’t meet certain qualifications, such as background or credit requirements, you may need a guarantor to sign our Guarantor Form.

What does "guarantor" mean?

A guarantor is simply someone who agrees to take some responsibility for the rent, essentially guaranteeing timely payment of the lease. For most student-living situations, the guarantor is a parent or legal guardian. Uncommon only asks for a guarantor when a potential resident for our Oxford, MS property can’t meet certain application requirements.

Is there a required application fee or security deposit?

To begin the background and credit check process, there is a $50 application fee. Assuming the background and credit checks are passed, there is a security deposit which varies by unit. If you have any questions about pricing, fees, and deposits, please contact our leasing office. We would love to help you get the information you need.

Can I bring my pet?

Even though we love pets, we unfortunately do not allow them at this time.

Is roommate matching an option at Uncommon Oxford?

Absolutely! If you don’t have a roommate in mind, or your group doesn’t have enough people to fill a certain unit, you can still reserve your spot at Uncommon Oxford apartments and fill out a Roommate Matching Form. The form asks questions about study habits, class and work schedules, social activities, overnight guests, etc., then matches you with a person who aligns with your interests and lifestyle.

Is there security at Uncommon Oxford?

At Uncommon Oxford, we provide a number of security measures, including front-desk check-in, security patrols, a 24-hour on-site security presence, and surveillance cameras throughout all common areas.
