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 The Verge 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 rent?

Each resident at The Verge pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • In-unit laundry
  • Internet
  • Cable TV
  • Water/sewer
  • Electricity ($25/person/month allowance)
  • Community features – 24-hour clubhouse with fitness center and game room, coffee bar, swimming pool, etc.

What size are the apartments?

The spacious accommodations at The Verge include 2 and 3 bedroom floorplans, with space up to 1,200 square feet. All apartments have a private bathroom for each bedroom.

Are the apartments furnished?

Will my financial aid cover charges at The Verge?

Your living costs at The Verge 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 The Verge. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is The Verge open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at The Verge are students at the University of Wyoming. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Nonetheless, The Verge 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?

The Verge has a monitored fire sprinkler system, plus electronic locks and individually locking bedroom doors. Community courtesy patrols are provided at select times. Management staff are also on-site 24×7 and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?
